Darryl Strawberry to Speak at Sioux Falls Prayer Breakfast 

Legendary baseball player Darryl Strawberry has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated seven times. He was also in four World Series, an eight time All Star, the number one pick in the draft, and Rookie of the Year at age 21. At one point, Strawberry had it all—fame, fortune, and a dream career.

But despite his success, Strawberry recalls feeling an emptiness inside.

Scripture from the book of Mark 8:36 (KJV) may come to mind: "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

The story of Strawberry's demise is less legendary. Over the years, he's faced addiction, cancer, divorce, and even time in prison.

Now, Pastor Strawberry shares his powerful story of redemption in Jesus Christ. Hear from a man who had it all and yet had nothing without faith.

Come, be inspired to learn who you are in Christ, and follow the path the Lord has set before you.

CBMC Mission & Purpose:  We’re a group of men in the marketplace living out our faith in authentic relationships.

At CBMC we strive to encourage individuals to get connected and to stay connected in order to help them grow in their faith. Being strong in faith empowers men to share with others the good news of Jesus Christ in the marketplace and to live godly lives. By fulfilling God’s purpose in their lives, men become a light to those around them by operating at a higher level of moral character and integrity and thus change the world around them. 

Whatever your current role in business, whatever you aspire to be, CBMC strives to help you think biblically about it. As Christians in the business world, we desire to love Christ Jesus more than our work or our wealth. That doesn’t come naturally for us, so we help each other mature into the businessmen God wants us to be.

We spend most of our lives at work. That goes double for business owners and managers. Naturally, this is our greatest area of influence, so we encourage men to wake up planning to worship the Lord at work so he will honor the Lord with the best of his life.

Remember, Christ didn’t come to save the “found” and the “perfect.” He tells all who are weary and downtrodden to “Come to me.” If you’re weighed down by junk in your life, there is a man nearby who would consider it an honor to draw alongside you to point the way to Christ.

Sioux Falls Prayer Breakfast:

  • The Sioux Falls Prayer Breakfast has been presented each Good Friday for the past 40 years and has been sponsored by the Sioux Falls chapter of the Christian Businessmen’s Connection (CBMC). Each year the Sioux Falls Prayer Breakfast draws near 1500 attendees, making it one of the largest Prayer Breakfasts in the US.
  • The Sioux Falls Prayer Breakfast has two priorities. First, it is our desire to present a very high quality event for the local community. Secondly we make sure that whoever attends the Sioux Falls Prayer Breakfast will be confronted by the real Gospel of Christ’s life-changing power. We select our speakers according to their personal testimonies of how their encounter with the risen Lord changed their lives.
