WHAT: The Rev. Raphael G. Warnock, senior pastor of the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, spiritual home of Martin Luther King, Jr., today announces a partnership withAtlanta Braves to host a citywide prayer breakfast for boys, young men, and fathers in the Atlanta metro area.
The men’s breakfast, “Conversations: Beyond the Game” will honor Baseball Hall of Famer,Henry “Hank” Aaron and retired All-Star MLB player Gary Sheffield. “It’s a pleasure for us to partner with the Braves as we bring together legends like Hank Aaron, Gary Sheffield, and ordinary men and boys in our community,” says Rev. Warnock. “We will host hundreds of boys and men from across the city to encourage and inspire one another and more importantly, to build upon what Dr. Martin Luther King called the “Beloved Community,” Warnock adds.

Warnock will moderate a one-on-one conversation with Aaron, Sheffield and a special surprise civil rights guest. “Contrary to many negative images in media, every day I see loving, dedicated fathers, and father figures, who are mentoring our boys and modeling good character and civic responsibility. We should do more to focus on these men and celebrate their successes in our communities,” adds Warnock.
