Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, some of our 8th grade Student Ambassadors, faculty and staff attended the Greater Pittsburgh Community Leaders Prayer Breakfast this past Friday.  This annual event is an opportunity to connect with the broader community of believers to worship, learn, pray and share a meal together.  It is a culminating experience for 8th Grade Ambassadors as they represent the school and are encouraged to meet believers from the business community.  This year, some faculty also connected with potential speakers for Friday chapels.
