Award-winning recording artist Natalie Grant and internationally-renowned author/speaker Charlotte Gambill are gearing up for the seventh annual Dare To Be Tour set to launch January 25, 2018. The highly-anticipated, multi-city women's event kicks off in Raleigh-Durham and will travel to major markets including Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Baltimore, Tallahassee, Fort Lauderdale (Coral Springs) and Tampa. Ticket information for the Dare To Be Tour is available at DareToBe.com
Since its inception in 2012, Dare To Be was designed to allow women of all ages to experience the benefits of a large conference packed into a single evening. The night is not just a speaker and concert, but a fully integrated program, including teaching, storytelling, worship, and inspiring moments of recognition and honor. The hope for the evening is to open up space in women's hearts, daring them to embrace all of who they're created to be in Christ.
"This tour continues to be one of the most important things I do every year," says Grant. "I love being a part of something that equips women with the knowledge of their true identity in Christ."
This year's program theme is "Dare To Be ONE," because, as Gambill explains, "We who are many are never more powerful than when we are ONE."
Each evening, Gambill and Grant will acknowledge a woman in the local community who has overcome extraordinary circumstances and exemplifies a woman who is "daring to be." Past honorees have been the recipients of paid-off medical bills, paid-off school debt, year-long rent and mortgage payments, vehicles and more. Despite the challenges that life can bring, Natalie and Charlotte want to show the powerful impact and importance of sisters honoring sisters. This impactful "Honoree Moment" is an event favorite for Grant and Gambill, and also for attendees.
"This tour is not just an evening event," Gambill says. "It's a movement, and every year it gathers momentum and meaning. We are already so expectant for what is about to unfold in 2018 and we believe the emphasis on this year's new theme is God-breathed."
Dare To Be will utilize radio and social media to encourage nominations of women to be considered for recognition during the "Honoree Moment." These are women who are making a difference in their own congregations or communities, despite being in the midst of unimaginable circumstances. More information on the nomination process can be found at DareToBe.com/be-one/.
