Brief History of 2011 Manitoba Prayer Breakfast:
Three years ago, we held a large inter-denominational
prayer breakfast to pray for our leaders in our province.
The 2011 Manitoba Prayer Breakfast provided the
opportunity to pray for our leaders, including: Members
of Parliament, Premier of Manitoba, Members of the
Manitoba legislative from all parties, Mayors, Councillors
as well as the Chief of Police for Winnipeg, Aboriginal
leaders, the Winnipeg fire department, multi-ethnic
groups, multi-denominational church members and
others. Entertainment was provided by Sokol Choir.
Eight hundred and sixty people were in attendance.
As the former CEO and now Chairman of Crossroads producer of 100 Huntley Street, Don brings a blend of experiences in both business and ministry. In a media dominated society, he believes strongly that God's love for people needs to be presented in a relevant way through the power of today’s media technology.
Don and his wife Fay have been married for 38 years and live in Uxbridge, Ontario. They have four children. Shauna (31), Craig (27), Brett (26) and April (16) and one grandchild. With their love for God and commitment to family as overriding priori-ties, Don and Fay have enjoyed a full life focused on two of the most rapidly changing environ-ments: the electronics business and the teenage world. In business Don is known as a “serial entre-preneur”, having been involved in over 20 new ventures in the last 30 years.
The businesses cover a diverse range of ideas from consumer audio products to solar electric power to dairy farming! Don was a founding partner in The Len-brook Group in 1977, a private business incubation com-pany perhaps best known for having created Clearnet, one of Canada’s wireless networks sold in 2001 to Telus. Until 2007 Don was the founding CEO of AirIQ Inc., a business providing wireless GPS tracking for all types of vehicles and marine vessels. During his years as CEO, AirIQ was named one of Canada’s fastest growing technology companies in the Deloitte Canadian Technol-ogy Fast 500 Program. He was a finalist in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Awards in 2005.
Don and his wife Fay have been youth leaders at their church in Uxbridge for many years. From 1991-1994 Don left the business environment to work more intensely with youth as the National Youth Coordinator for Canadian Baptists, and in 1994 was the Executive Director of To-ronto Youth for Christ (now Youth Unlimited). From 1980 to 1990 Don served as Canada’s representative to Baptist World Alliance Youth and assisted in the planning of world youth conferences in Argentina, Scotland and Zim-babwe. Don enjoys being a private pilot, serves on a number of profit and not for profit boards, and particularly appreciates the opportunity to coach the young men on the Uxbridge Tigers HighSchool Hockey team whose motto is “winning at hockey and winning in life”! Come and listen to this Canadian hero’s story.
