Legendary NFL great Rosey Grier keynote at Good Friday Prayer breakfast

The 31st Annual Good Friday Prayer Breakfast will be held Friday, April 18, 2014 from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the Charles O. White Royals Pavilion at Woodcrest Christian High School.

This year’s featured guest is NFL Legend, Rosey Grier, the last remaining member of the LA Rams’ “Fearsome Foursome.” Grier has been sharing his faith both on and off the field for most of his life. The iconic African-American athlete broke into acting after an All-Pro, thirteen year football career with the NY Giants and LA Rams. Grier used macramé and needlepoint to capture America’s attention and released a 1973 book “Needlepoint for Men.”

Grier, an ordained minister and entertainer, has just released a new CD, “Let the Ol’ Man Play.” Grier, along with his new wife, Cydnee, continues to champion the causes of those less fortunate, and to guide inner city teens from poor backgrounds.

Breakfast speakers include Masters of Ceremony, Stan Morrison, and Riverside Mayor, Rusty Bailey with participation from representatives from The City of Riverside, Sandals, The Grove, Harvest, Mt Rubidoux Seventh Day Adventist Church, California Baptist University and Woodcrest Christian High School. “Last years’ revival was a testament to the power of Christ in our lives,” states Woodcrest Christian School System Superintendent, James Sullivan, “It was a tremendous blessing.”
