Description

Join us for the Overland Park Mayor's Prayer Breakfast March 21, 2019.

Guest Speaker will be Taysir Abu Saada (Tass), Founder, Author and International Speaker

Tass is the founder of Christian Ministry Hope for Ishmael and Seeds of Hope. He authored the books, Once an Arafat Man, the true story of how a PLO sniper found a new life, and The Mind of Terror. At the center of all he does is his passion to see the message of peace and reconciliation not only for the Middle East but for the whole world.

Tass and his wife, Karen have been taking the message of peace to the people Tass was raised to hate (the Jews) and to the brethren he was willing to die for as a PLO under Arafat (the Muslims). They have returned from the Holy Land to the U.S. to assist churches in reaching out to their Muslim neighbors in love and to work on creating opportunities for peace in the Middle East.

History of the Overland Park Mayor's Prayer Breakfast:

In 1973, Homer Anderson (the man Homer’s Coffee House is named in honor of) proposed a plan to begin Mayor’s Prayer Breakfasts in cities throughout Kansas and Missouri. Homer visited with mayors throughout the region and asked them to let Kansas City CBMC sponsor Annual Mayor Prayer Breakfasts in their cities.

Over the next few years many such events were begun. Other CBMC areas followed our lead and began Mayor’s Prayer Breakfasts as well. Nationally, CBMC sponsors Mayor’s Prayer Breakfasts in St Louis, Houston, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Los Angeles, and many other cities.

The purpose, then as now, was to present the claims of Jesus Christ to the business and professional community in a non-threatening and open environment. The guidelines were that there would be no mention of political parties or denominations. We would discourage politicians and clergy from speaking and the main speakers would be business people or athletes who had had a significant encounter with Christ.
