On Tuesday, June 14, people will gather together to pray for local communities at the Sussex County Prayer Breakfast. This year, the Sussex County Prayer Breakfast will host Bill Alexson, son of former Brooklyn Dodger baseball player Andrew “Doc” Alexson.
Bill Alexson played professional basketball in Greece for two years, is the founder of the NBA’s Player’s Chapel program and was chaplain to the Boston Celtics’ for 20 years. He is the founder and president of SportsPower International Inc. and has authored five pro athlete testimonial books.
Alexson presently travels the world with former and current NBA players to encourage youth to make right choices in life through games, clinics, camps, school assemblies and urban outreach. He lives in Baltimore, with his wife, Valerie, and his son Brandon. (More information on Alexson is available at www.SportsPower.org.)
The Sussex County Prayer Breakfast is held each year to bring citizens and community leaders together to pray for the county and be inspired with a morning of music, ministry and personal reflection.
Ticket sales and community sponsorships from individuals, organizations and businesses support the annual event. Former County Councilman Dale Dukes is again volunteering his time to coordinate the event.
Tickets are available at www.SussexPrayerBreakfast.com for $20 each or $150 for a table of eight. The event will be held at Crossroad Community Church in Georgetown on June 14. Breakfast begins at 6:45 a.m., and the ministry and music portion of the program will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m.
