The 21st Annual Ozark Mountain Prayer Breakfast was held Thursday, May 5, at the Branson Convention Center in downtown Branson.
More than a thousand Christians gathered together for fellowship and prayer for the nation, our current leaders, and our future leaders. The group included not only various community leaders, but church groups, and student groups from Stone and Taney counties.
The Don & Dorothy Gabriel Kingdom Builder Award was given to Bryan and Amy Stallings, the founders of Elevate Branson. The award is named for Don Gabriel, father of entertainer Doug Gabriel, who founded the Branson Christian Business Men’s Committee, which birthed the Ozark Mountain Prayer Breakfast. The honor is given each year to a person or persons who “contributes to the quality of the community by demonstrating in word and action a dedication and dynamic Christian life.”
