Roy Morgan, founder and president of Premier Productions, which has hosted over 23 million people at live faith and family concerts and events over the last 40 years, will keynote the 27th Annual Furniture Fellowship Breakfast on Friday, June 4, from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.
The industry prayer breakfast tradition will resume after the cancellation last year of the April 2020 Market, which marked the first time in 27 years that the breakfast had not been held. Covid-19 safety protocols for indoor gatherings in the 11th floor International Home Furnishings Center Green Ballroom location will be observed.
“Doing something different” in your personal, professional, family and church life will be the message theme at the breakfast, said Morgan, who is currently the Tour Promoter for artists such as Hillsong, Hillsong Worship, Lauren Daigle, Gaither Vocal Band and the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular. “In the music business, I’ve observed that when people have the courage to implement a paradigm shift, that’s when they really have breakout success.”
“God is continually doing something different,” Morgan said, citing Isaiah 43:19: “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” Morgan hopes that people will leave the breakfast “challenged and encouraged to do something different than in the past in their business model, their families and their marriages. I hope I can encourage them to be innovative, to explore new ways of doing things, even if there’s a risk.”
Industry professionals will present the opening and closing prayers and New Testament and Old Testament Scripture readings.
Cost of admission for the breakfast is $30.00 for an individual, which includes breakfast. General Breakfast Sponsors are: Archbold Furniture, Culp, Elements Studio, Home Meridian International, Hooker Furnishings, Karen McNeill, Patrick McNamara, Samson Marketing, Stump & Associates and Uttermost.

About The Furniture Fellowship prayer breakfast: The Furniture Fellowship prayer breakfast has been held since 1994 at the opening of the spring international High Point Market. Sponsored by the Furniture Fellowship board, the breakfast is modeled after the National Presidential Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. and is intended to provide an atmosphere for fellowship, worship and prayer and an opportunity to pause collectively as an industry at the beginning of the High Point Market to thank and honor God.
