Meaningless..Meaningless - True Wealth is found in Christ

About Speaker



EJ is a pastor, speaker and the founder of

A Story of Riches to Rags and Finding True Wealth in Christ:

Born in Detroit Michigan and raised by a family with deep ties to the auto industry, EJ will share a powerful testimony that takes you through a journey of hardship, triumph, and finding meaning in Christ. His inspiring story parallels Solomon’s, as told in the Old Testament. In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon shares the epilogue of his life recounting that all things, other than Christ, are meaningless.
Speaking to over 150,000 students and adults per year, EJ Swanson has become one of the most sought-after speakers in the nation. His commitment to making Christ real has allowed him to develop a style that is exciting and compelling to young and old audiences alike, without watering down the Christ-centered truth of God’s word.
EJ has toured with renowned Christian artists including The David Crowder Band, Mercy Me, Hawk Nelson, Shawn McDonald, Matt Maher, Big Daddy Weave, and Building 429. As the founder of and, he is involved in some of America’s most time-honored, innovative, and fastest-growing ministries today.
EJ will share his compelling story of having what appeared to be the perfect life, losing it all, and finding that all things are meaningless without Christ as your center. CBMC is pleased to have EJ share his personal testimony at the 39th Sioux Falls Prayer Breakfast. 
We would be honored to have you join us.

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 39 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.
