Community Prayer Luncheon
Mark your calendars for this year’s Community Prayer Luncheon that will be held on Thurs., May 4, at 11:30 a.m., at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
We are excited to bring you two phenomenal speakers in Patrick Gray and Justin Skeesuck, best friends who completed the 500-mile pilgrimage called Camino de Santiago. This was not your ordinary pilgrimage as Skeesuck lives life in a wheelchair due to a progressive neuromuscular disease. Over the past 20-plus years, the disease has slowly taken away Skeesuck’s ability to use his arms and legs.
In the spring of 2012, Skeesuck learned about the Camino de Santiago and asked his lifelong friend, Gray, what he thought about tackling the ancient pilgrimage. Gray’s response was “I’ll push you.” Two years later, they started their 34-day journey.
Both Gray and Skeesuck are married and each have three children. They founded Push, Inc. where they help organizations and individuals realize they can achieve more, together.
Since their return from Spain, Skeesuck and Gray have been delivering messages of hope, faith, friendship, leadership and the power of community.
The two have a film being made about their friendship and journey, which is scheduled to be released in early fall of 2017.
Tickets for the Community Prayer Luncheon will go on sale the end of March on our website.
Thanks to our 2017 sponsors!
