Mayors Message October 2019

Mayor Steve MacDougall

At the end of this month the Lexington County Blowfish will host the third annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast. If you’ve never been before, I’ll paint you a picture. It’s an early morning at Lexington County Stadium where it is my pleasure to serve scrambled eggs, bacon, grits, pastries and bagels.

Initially, the thought was we would have a small gathering of like-minded faith believers and start the day with a positive message of hope. It soon also became an opportunity to make connections that would make our community stronger.

This year, the featured speaker is former MLB pitcher, Blowfish coach and current Columbia International University baseball coach Jonathan Johnson. In 1996, Johnson and his father started a baseball ministry called "Honoring the Father Ministries" which uses baseball to share Christ. Their ministry reaches several thousand ‘Cubans for Christ’ each year simply by following Christ’s example to meet people at their point of need.

That point of need is also very real right here throughout our own Lexington community. This is why each year proceeds raised by the breakfast benefit a local charitable organization in Lexington.
