Fans are invited by Southern Gospel music group Brian Free & Assurance (BFA) to attend their very first Unashamed Fan Retreat, to be held October 14-16, 2016. The retreat allows fans to get up close and personal with this Dove Award winning band and also to enjoy their concerts right throughout the day.
Thus far, the response has been overwhelming. "We are completely overwhelmed by your response to our Unashamed Fan Retreat and want to thank each of you who have registered for all your comments and support! We can't wait to spend this weekend together in the Blue Ridge Mountains this fall! You guys are the BEST and we love you!"
The retreat will take place in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina at LifeWay's Ridgecrest Conference Center. BFA will spend three days with a limited number of fans providing an exclusive weekend with the group.
The campus at Ridgecrest encompasses 1,300 acres and is conveniently located just east of Asheville, North Carolina, less than a day's drive from over 15 states. Ridgecrest Account Manager Annette Frisby states, "Ridgecrest is delighted to have Brian Free & Assurance as part of our fall calendar! They will bring an excitement to this Spirit-filled place in the Blue Ridge mountains!"
Unlike a homecoming or three day event with multiple artists, the Unashamed Fan Retreat will solely feature Brian Free and Assurance with unique day- and night-time activities. A special feature during concert times will be a live band, with Brian's oldest son Ricky playing drums. Brian shares, "When we were planning this retreat, we didn't want an event that people would come to and just be sung at - yes, we are going to sing - but more importantly, we want to interact and spend time with our fans."
The mission of Brian Free and Assurance is to lift up Jesus Christ through their music, see souls come to know the Lord as Savior and be an encouragement to Believers across the nation and abroad. They believe in helping others grow in their walk with the Lord by forming exhorting relationships with their fans and investing in them at concerts.Everything is done for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. Brian, Bill and Mike are passionate about their calling and they are unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
