The breakfast was started by a group of ministers from the Greater Cantonment-Ensley Ministerial Alliance is today led by a diverse committee that believes in preserving the original mission of encouraging moral and spiritual values in government.

The prayer breakfast will be held on Saturday, 28, 2017, at New World Landing.

    Congratulations on a very well-deserved honor. Every time I have met with Mayor McCall, I have always been impressed with how much he cares and works for the people he serves. He is a true servant-leader. Mr. Mayor, thank-you for being a living example of faith in action!

    How wonderful to have this man as a leader in Century and the area. Very likeable and down to earth yet an example of what a man with his heart in the right place can do for the area, He has the quality of Hope for the area like no other. His quiet nature and strength and can I get an AMEN..patience.. is just what Century needs during these trying times. He is well respected from what we have heard from other leaders higher up the chain. His positive attitude is genuine and has to come from a source stronger than from him alone.
