“We appreciate the service and sacrifice of our brave law enforcement officers,” said BJU President Steve Pettit. “The prayer breakfast is a time to thank them and support future members of the LEO community. Many BJU criminal justice students join police agencies in Greenville County. Breakfast sponsor’s contributions help provide scholarships for our senior criminal justice majors.”


The breakfast is provided free of charge to law enforcement personnel. Business and community leaders across the Upstate are encouraged to attend and sponsor the event.

Proceeds from the breakfast benefit the Allen Jacobs Memorial Scholarship Fund, which was created at the request of the Jacobs family, to assist BJU students majoring in criminal justice. Since 2016, over $112,000 has been raised for the scholarship fund.
