Lubbock Leaders Pause to Pray

On the National Day of Prayer, The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce will host the 2022 Community Prayer Luncheon, presented by the Lubbock Christian University Foundation (LCU). The event begins at 11:30 a.m. on May 5 at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, 1501 Mac Davis Lane.

The annual event is an opportunity for local civic, academic, and business leaders to gather and pray for our nation, state, community, and families. Blake Buchanan, president and CEO of Bahama Buck’s, is this year’s featured speaker.

“I’m honored to be a part of the Community Prayer Luncheon on the National Day of Prayer,” said Buchanan. “What a blessing it is to live in a community that recognizes the value of prayer and intentionally comes together to pray for the United States, Texas, and Lubbock. This speaks volumes about our community.”

A trusted voice on blessing guests and flavoring lives, Buchanan founded Bahama Buck’s as a college student in 1990. Bahama Buck’s has grown into a nationally recognized brand with more than a hundred locations from California to Puerto Rico. Buchanan defines success by the number of lives blessed through his simple message of hope–flavor your life.

Mayor Dan Pope is among the group who will bring prayers during the luncheon:

  • Jeremy Barbee, Roy Neal Insurance
  • Audra Boedeker, Service Title Company
  • Gary Harber, Retired Brigadier General
