Good Friday Breakfast

Oregon Convention Center | March 30, 2018 | 7 AM–8:45 AM


The Portland Good Friday Breakfast is a blessing to the Portland community from the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette and our many sponsors. All are welcome to join us for this moving testimony of God's redemption and forgiveness.

2018 Keynote Speaker | Alana Simmons


In 2015, a white supremist in Charleston, South Carolina walked into a Bible study and brutally murdered nine African-Americans. Rev. Daniel L. Simmons, Sr. was one of those victims. Because of this unimaginable tragedy, his granddaughter, Alana Simmons became the voice of her family, congregation and the nation. When she was asked to speak at the bond hearing of the man that massacred her friends and family she delivered a powerful message that sent ripples around the world.

On Friday, March 30, 2018, Alana will share this compelling story, which you will never forget.

About Portland Good Friday Breakfast

The Portland Good Friday Breakfast began in 2007 by Open Arms International. Open Arms' Co-Founders, David and Rachel Gallagher recognized the need for an event in Portland to highlight the historical death and the resurrection of Christ Jesus, and wanted the opportunity to reach out to the greater Portland community with an evangelical message of God’s love.

Since 2007, nearly 10,000 people have attended the Portland Good Friday Breakfast and heard inspirational messages from well-respected Christian speakers such as Captain Charlie Plumb and Nick Vujicic.
