Ventura Family YMCA to hold Prayer Breakfast

The Ventura Family YMCA is hosting its Annual Prayer Breakfast. The popular annual gathering of local religious and community leaders will feature keynote speaker, Chelsea Shaw. Shaw is a two time national champion with the University of Oregon’s Acrobatic and Tumbling team and is currently a coach, athletic recruiter and motivational speaker.

As the daughter of a pastor, Shaw’s motto is “all you’ve got, all the time”, and she will share the story of how her faith helped her achieve her goals not only in her athletic career but also in her personal and professional life.

Along with Shaw’s appearance, attendees will enjoy breakfast generously donated by The Palms at Bonaventure as well as musical performances by Rubicon Harmonix and Laura Callen.

For 12 years, the Annual Prayer Breakfast has inspired and united the community to come together for the common good. This year eight churches, Anthem Church, Harvest Bible Chapel, New Harvest Ventura, River Community Church, Mission Church, South Coast Fellowship, Mission San Buenaventura and Temple Beth Torah have dedicated their time and efforts to making this event possible.

The Annual Prayer Breakfast will take place Wednesday, November 15 at 7:30 am at the Ventura Family YMCA, 3760 Telegraph Road. The event is free for the community to attend but RSVPs are required by calling the YMCA at 642-2131 or by signing up online at

The Ventura Family YMCA thanks its local volunteer heroes and extends an invite for more volunteers to give their time to upcoming opportunities to give back.

As one of the leading nonprofits and volunteer organizations in the country, nearly 600,000 people volunteer at the Y each year and at the Ventura Y more than 200 donated their time this year through activities such as mentoring teens, coaching youth sports, serving on boards and committees, participating in community projects and spearheading fundraising drives.
