Furniture Fellowship Breakfast
Friday April 12, 2024 @ 6:45am
~doors open at 6:20am~

We’re looking forward to a great event with our colleagues and anticipate an impactful morning of fellowship!

According to the hosts of the breakfast, “As the fourth-generation family leader of what has become the nation’s largest Coca-Cola bottler, Frank is focused on creating a culture of servant leaders whose values and actions honor God.  We are looking forward to a great event with our colleagues and anticipate an impactful morning of fellowship.”

Nido Qubein, president of High Point University, will introduce Harrison. The program will also feature devotional music provided by members of the High Point University’s Chamber Singers.

At the breakfast, Harrison will talk about the importance of a purpose-driven culture, servant leadership, generosity, excellence, growth, and much more. “Getting the culture right,” Harrison says, “is the key to driving great results.”

Harrison officially began his career with Coca-Cola Consolidated in 1977, but his roots in the Coca-Cola system date back to 1902, when his great-grandfather J.B. Harrison first introduced Coca-Cola to the Carolinas.  Frank was named Chairman and CEO in 1996.

In keeping with tradition, the goal of the Prayer Breakfast is to bring a message to attendees that is spiritual as well as practical.

Guilford Music will be leading the music at the upcoming breakfast

Guilford Music’s artistry pays homage to the roots music carved into the very mountains they call home and the faith they’ve forged through personal experience. Ultimately, it’s a name that represents everything they are— and everything they hope to be. “When we decided to start singing together, it was bringing two genres that spoke to our hearts together for one purpose, and that purpose was honoring the Lord through the styles we love,” Parker explains. “We want to be a light instead of a lightning rod, but we don’t shy away from our convictions. We share the same goals musically and spiritually, so I think that’s the glue that holds us together.”

Breakfast event hosted at the Qubein Conference Center
on the High Point University campus.
