Free to Live!

 

A Night to Touch the Father’s Heart
Tom Davis, children’s advocate, encourages
Christians to fight for freedom for the oppressed.

We are free from injustice—free from being captured and forced into prostitution, rape and slavery. We are free to come and go as we please—FREE to LIVE. But in this freedom, shouldn’t we choose to bring freedom to others? There are orphans who are hungry, thirsty, dirty, sick and dying. And we can bring freedom to these children. We can bring the freedom of Christ to their lives. Join in this fight for freedom by attending the Free to Live Tour. By attending you will be given the opportunity to make a change in the lives of millions of children worldwide.

The Free to Live Tour is an interactive evening of worship, prayer, multi-media and personal testimonies from orphans, along with an inspirational call to action. It will bring together the passion of Tom Davis, author and CEO of Children’s HopeChest, with inspiring worship from the Desperation Band and Meredith Andrews. Together they will offer an engaging evening of music but, more importantly, they will proclaim a desire to bring hope and freedom to the hopeless.

The tour begins this May and will visit both the East and West Coasts of the United States. Specific dates and times are available on their website at www.freetolive.com. Sponsored by Children’s HopeChest—a Colorado Springs-based ministry that helps orphans overcome abandonment, poverty and violence—the tour will begin in the following cities:

Louisville, KY
Wednesday, May 11 @ 7 PM
Southeast Christian Church


Atlanta, GA
Thursday, May 12 @ 7 PM
The Tabernacle AG

Weddington, NC (Charlotte)
Friday, May 13 @ 7 PM
Southbrook Church

Huntsville, AL
Saturday, May 14 @ 7 PM
Asbury United Methodist Church

Birmingham, AL
Sunday, May 15 @ 7 PM
Westwood Baptist Church

A portion of the proceeds collected at the Alabama events will
be donated to local ministries for tornado relief.

The concert will feature a night of worship music by two of worship’s most exciting and innovative artists. This is a free-ticketed event. However, there will be an opportunity to give in a love offering, and audience members will be given the opportunity to become part of the movement to protect orphans and vulnerable children from sex trafficking and extreme poverty. “Bringing freedom to orphans trapped by poverty and sex slavery is the challenge of this generation,” says Davis. “The church has unique resources to share with the 163 million children who are living as orphans today. Those resources bring freedom from hunger and thirst, freedom from abuse and violence and freedom to live as true sons and daughters of their true Father.”

About the Speaker: Tom Davis is the well-known author of Red Letters, Fields of the Fatherless and his fiction series (Scared and Priceless) which bring readers to a greater awareness of issues such as orphans around the world and human trafficking. A tireless advocate for fatherless children, Davis has spent most of his adult life calling U.S. believers to become the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to the 143 million orphans living around the world. He holds a business and pastoral ministry degree from Dallas Baptist University and a master’s degree in theology from The Criswell College. He currently serves as the CEO of Children’s HopeChest, a Christian-based child advocacy organization helping orphans in Eastern Europe and Africa. When not traveling the globe, Davis resides in the mountains of Colorado in the small community of Palmer Lake. He and his wife, Emily, have seven children, including two adopted daughters from Russia.
