dare_to_be NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 10, 2013) – Inspired by the growing spiritual needs of today’s Christian women, the all-new Dare to Be Revolution movement returns in January with a 2014 Dare to Be…The Journey Continues event tour, crossing the United States and creating an unforgettable experience for women of all ages to come together and ‘dare to be’ empowered to make a difference in their life, their family and community. The night is created for women to unwind, be refreshed, and celebrate life with other women in their lives. They will be dared to follow their dreams, challenged to do more than they ever thought possible, and to let go of their fears and embrace who they truly are in Christ. At each event, Dare to Be will honor one local woman who has overcome extraordinary circumstances and is now an inspiration to others by making a difference in her community. Nominations will be taken in each city, and Dare to Be will surprise one woman at each event. Nominee stories may be submitted to Natalie and Charlotte for consideration at daretobeevent.com/stories. The affordable, three-hour event is a fully integrated evening of teaching, music, and media that will infuse incredible worship and Bible-teaching into one evening of great content. The tour is scheduled to hit more than a dozen cities in early 2014 with a lineup which includes Grammy® nominated vocalist Natalie Grant and international speaker, Bible teacher and author Charlotte Gambill. The combination of this powerhouse duo is guaranteed to bring lots of laughter and moments to tweet about. At the same time, Dare to Be speaks directly to a woman’s heart and delivers truth that is uplifting and healing. “I have struggled with self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy, so this event came from a personal place for me,” said Natalie. “We all need to be reminded that we are who God says that we are, and that He will equip us with everything we need. It’s been incredibly rewarding to see women grab ahold of these truths, and it has strengthened my faith in the process.” “We are so excited about our next adventure of events: Dare to Be…The Journey Continues,” said Charlotte. “This past year we saw the launch of the Dare to Be ministry that God created in our hearts, and we were amazed at how God moved when we stepped out, together as friends, to His challenge. We sensed the urgency of God to dare to be all that He was calling us to be, and we knew He was taking us on an adventure with Him. We can’t wait to be on the road to meet so many new friends, worship God, and open His word.” Tickets are currently on sale at the daretobeevent.com website, and starting October 14, many radio station partners will let their listeners know about a special bundle they can purchase for one week only: a Natalie Grant “Hurricane” CD and a general admission ticket to Dare to Be for only $20.00. You can find more information at daretobeevent.com. Dare to Be is excited to announce Abolition International as the presenting sponsor for 2014. Abolition International was founded by Natalie Grant in 2005 and is making a difference in the lives of human trafficking victims by advocating for quality care, education and awareness. Abolition International‘s mission fits perfectly with the purpose of  Dare to Be and Natalie and Charlotte are excited about the possibilities of restoration through this partnership. Regent University also returns as a supporting sponsor for 2014.   DATES/CITIES/VENUES January 9, 2014           Sacramento, CA         Capital Christian Center January 11, 2014         Coos Bay, OR            Southwestern Oregon Community College January 16, 2014         Twin Falls, ID              Twin Falls Reformed Church January 17, 2014         Boise, ID                    Capital Christian Center January 18, 2014         Seattle, WA                Christian Faith Center January 19, 2014         Bellingham, WA          North County Christ the King January 23, 2014         Virginia Beach, VA      Wave Church January 24, 2014         Baltimore, MD            Bridgeway Community Church January 25, 2014         Washington, D.C.       Christian Fellowship Church February 20, 2014       Coral Springs, FL        Church by the Glades February 222014        Tampa, FL                  TBA March 1, 2014             Dallas, TX                   The Avenue Church   LINKS http://daretobeevent.com Twitter: @daretobeevent Facebook: /daretobeevent Instagram: @daretobeevent
