TERRE HAUTE -- The sixth annual Wabash Valley Ladies Unity Night will take place Friday, May 15, at 7 p.m., at Indiana State University's Hulman Center, 200 N. 8th St., Terre Haute.
The featured quest will be President and Co-Founder of Proverbs 31 Ministries Lysa TerKeurst.
TerKeurst is an award-winning author of 11 books, including her latest, "What Happens When Women Say Yes To God."
She has been featured on Focus on the Family, Family Life Today, Good Morning America and Woman's Day Magazine, "O" Magazine, The Oprah Show and John and Kate Plus Eight.
She is also co-host of the Proverbs 31 Ministry's national radio program, which airs daily on more than 1,200 stations as well as a writer for the ministry's e-mail devotions called "Encouragement for Today." Her greatest passion is inspiring women to say yes to God and take part in the awesome adventure He has designed every soul to live.
Praise and Worship for the evening will be led by several area female musicians representing seven churches from the Wabash Valley.
Last year's event, hosted by the Wabash Valley Ladies Unity Vision, drew nearly 6,000 in attendance. The evening will provide all ladies of the Wabash Valley an opportunity to join together for an evening of faith, fellowship and fun while celebrating being "United in Christ ... Eternally One."
The event promotes breaking down denominational barriers as well as desires to reach out to ladies that may not otherwise have an opportunity to hear about Christ in an informal, relaxed setting.
The Wabash Valley Ladies Unity Vision, a team composed of ladies from area churches, is bringing the program to the Wabash Valley by funding the event through contributions from area churches and local businesses.
As well, a love offering will be received the night of the event to help further defray costs and provide funding for future events. A minimum of 10 percent of all gross contributions are sown back into other community ministries.
Tickets are free of charge but are required to enter. Tickets were released April 15 at 10 a.m., at Hulman Center and at 1 p.m., by calling 1-812-237-3737, or 1-877-478-8497.
Doors will open on the night of the event at 6 p.m.
