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. Jeff Clement has been the vision and passion of getting this event started with the support of the IT Community here in DFW.
