An Iowa Prayer Breakfast evening event for students called “The Gathering” will be held on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 from 7:00–8:30 p.m. at Ministerio Nuevo Amanecer (New Dawn Ministries), 3200 Lincoln Ave., Des Moines, IA, 50310. Each year the Iowa Prayer Breakfast offers this complimentary event the evening prior to the Iowa Prayer Breakfast.
The theme of The Gathering is “Flip the Script”. The Gathering will include worship music and a special guest appearance by the Iowa Prayer Breakfast keynote speaker, Becky Tirabassi. Church youth pastors, their youth groups, and all interested students are invited to attend. Pastor Al Perez, student event subcommittee chair, said, “The Gathering will have multiple ministries in the Urban Core of Des Moines display unity in Christ. Christ is transforming a culture of victimhood to victorious living in Him and we are looking forward to seeing this moment turn into a movement.” There is no cost and no RSVP required.
