About the Breakfast

In 1999, a group of Tucson business leaders started the Good Friday Breakfast as a continuation of the beloved Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast held every year on Good Friday. The purpose of the event is to bring in speakers who have lived extraordinary lives and have had extraordinary experiences but have faced ordinary problems. They share their life experiences and relate how God has been the guiding light in their lives. Because we bring in dynamic and well-known speakers with mass appeal in both the Christian and secular sphere, we’re able to attract people who might not ever attend church or a Christian event where they would hear the Gospel. The Good Friday Breakfast has been a source of hope and joy for 24 years and is the event where hundreds have come to know Christ.

Gospel Rescue Mission

Founded in 1953, Gospel Rescue Mission (GRM) provides lasting solutions to the homelessness crisis. GRM is rooted in the community, dedicated to transformation and collaborative in their approach to bringing hope and help to those in need. GRM is providing support and structure to the Good Friday Breakfast, while Good News Ministries is providing marketing support. GRM is blessed to be able to carry on the long tradition of the Breakfast. Our hope is that many people are brought to faith or it has reignited their faith to live a life pleasing to God and the community is better because of it.

Absolutely not. We intentionally bring in speakers who have the ability to draw both believers and non believers. Our goal is to invite as many people as possible because our event always concludes with a presentation of the Gospel. We want people to know who Christ is and so we are warm, welcoming, and inviting to both those who know Jesus and those who don’t. This is our long way of saying please bring your friends!

No - although we do ask you to either fill your table or let us know if you are unable to do so. We want to welcome as many people as possible!

No. Our speakers understand not everyone is a believer and tailor their message for wide appeal (although they do not shy away from the truth and how God has impacted their lives). Our Gospel presentation comes at the end of the event and is always meant to draw people in, not make them feel out of place or excluded.

Absolutely not! We want anyone and everyone who wants to be at Good Friday Breakfast to be at Good Friday Breakfast! We always have a diverse group of attendees and love the unity and fellowship that comes from having such a wonderful mix.
