Our 2018 DFW Technology Prayer Breakfast will be back at the Irving Convention Center on Friday, October 5, from 6:30 – 9:30 am. Sign up today to volunteer, sponsor or host a table. We are accepting nominations to the Merv Tarde Values in Leadership Circle. We have other events leading up to our annual event that we post on our Facebook page, so you can keep up with us leading up to the big day.



What is the DFW Prayer Breakfast?

The Dallas/Fort Worth Technology Prayer Breakfast was created to connect the Technology Leaders in North Texas to the convictions and passions they share with so many others here in the Metroplex.  It’s also a time that we can share our faith with coworkers by inviting them to come and enjoy a great breakfast and the speaker we have handpicked for this day.  We are a volunteer led organization.  Steve Helms is our Committee President and he is leading the effort to build our team to reach more people each year. Sign up to Volunteer and help make this year’s event our best one ever.

Cheryl is known for her crisp strategic thinking, a franchisee-focused approach, and superior financial performance.  Guided by the servant leadership thinking of Robert Greenleaf, she believes highly-caring, collaborative leaders with big ambitions for the enterprise, not themselves, generate the conditions for people to perform their best work.
