Our History

The catalyst for a Foundation was a relationship focused ministry on the Monterey Peninsula modeled after the National Prayer Breakfast. The Young Life Area Director in the mid-70’s, Jim Greene felt God nudging him to step away from Young Life, and focus on developing a prayer breakfast ministry on the Monterey Peninsula.

The primary purpose of the annual prayer breakfast was to bring the community together for focused prayer. The keynote was always given by a Christian, with the hope that seeds would be planted for followers of Jesus to go deeper in their faith, and follow up with their guests who might not yet have made the decision to accept Jesus into their lives. An opportunity was given for attendees to express interest in participating in a small group


SEEK – As one voice we call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ on behalf of our nation and local communities

II Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by My name, humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land.

Matt 7: 7-8  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

STAND – We stand on the Bible as the Word of God (John 1) and God’s promises of salvation through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

Romans 10:10  We stand firm in the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18) and “continue steadfastly in prayer being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 4:2).


Mission of #MontereyPrayerBreakfast

Our Mission

The Monterey Prayer Breakfast is a community prayer event of the Oswald Chambers Foundation, a (501(c)(3) Non-Profit Prayer Initiative. We host community prayer events on the Monterey Peninsula and invite Christians of all denominations to join together by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to:

SERVE - We actively partner with other ministries, including but not limited to, Love Our Central Coast, to support and build up neighborhoods, schools, and families in Monterey County Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine among the people so that they observe your good works and give glory to your Heavenly Father. Galatians 6:10 Therefore, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers


Our New Added Plan

MONTHLY PRAYER !  Yes, not so surprisingly the Holy Spirit has inspired quite a few to pursue joining other Christians throughout the Monterey Peninsula to pray together.  With corporate prayer uniting multiple denominations, varied races, and Christians from all walks of life, we are sure to see the Holy Spirit move.


On a monthly basis, a different church in the area will host a prayer event which they are to design, manage and run.  The “We Pray Monterey” organization, which is a division of the Oswald Chambers/Monterey Prayer Breakfast non-profit.  The “We Pray Monterey” team will utilize print media, advertise on radio, post on its website and social media to spread the word about the event.



Face-to-face, or phone call connections, have proven the most effective ways to bring people to our prayer events (83% of attendees).  In light of that, we will have teams door-knock the surrounding neighbors with personal invitations to that month’s event.

Come help spread the word about our events.  Tell friends, ask your pastor/priest, re-post on social media, or door-knock a neighbor.  Please signup below.
