Welch College President Matthew Pinson announced a new event to celebrate the Christian faith in our community: Strong and Courageous. The event will include entertainment, inspirational speakers and the awarding of the Strong and Courageous Award. The inspiration event comes from the charge given to Joshua in Joshua 1:9 for him to be strong and very courageous as he leads the children of Israel. Likewise today, Christians who continue to be strong and courageous in their faith positively affect their work, neighborhood and community.
Headlining the entertainment for the evening will be Ricky and Sharon Skaggs. The Skaggs who are Sumner County residents have dedicated their lives to not only writing and producing outstanding music but also to sharing the impact of Christ upon their life. They are exemplary examples of combining faith, work and life.
In addition to the Skaggs, musical performances by Rejoice! and other music talent at Welch will provide a setting for inspirational challenges by individuals such as noted physician and scientist, Dr. Ming Wang.
Sponsorship opportunities as well as individual tickets remain available. To learn more contact Derek Altom at [email protected]

Proceeds from the event will support Welch College scholarships.
