Come by our booth in the Exhibit Hall at the General Assembly to pick up your tickets!
This year’s Friends of BNG Dinner during the CBF General Assembly will feature a creative approach to the faith-based news organization’s emphasis on hosting “Conversations that Matter.”
The program for the June 29 event, which begins at 5:30 p.m., at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Atlanta will include a live concert and panel discussion on “Gospel Gothic: Faith, Music & Meaning in the Christ-haunted South.”
The program will follow the format of a weekly radio show broadcast from Macon, Ga., that explores Christian faith through the themes of Americana music. “Gospel Gothic” is produced through a partnership between Macon’s Highland Hills Baptist Church and radio station 100.9 The Creek FM. It is hosted by Highland Hills pastor, Jake Hall, and Brad Evans and Wes Griffith, co-owners of 100.9 The Creek FM.
“Sin, grace and redemption all mark the message of the preachers, writers and musicians that have shaped the southern story,” explains Hall. “We designed‘ Gospel Gothic’ as a platform to explore faith, music and meaning. Through the space created by this partnership, the voices of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John find harmony with evangelists of another kind: Johnny Cash, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt.”
The show during BNG’s dinner event will include an ensemble of Americana artists providing music interwoven with a conversation among show producers Jake Hall and Keith Gammons, along with Brad Evans and Wes Griffith, about the radio program’s concept and its approach to engaging listeners around music and faith.
Tickets prices are $45 per person if purchased after June 22.
A limited number of tickets will be available at the BNG exhibit on a first-come, first-served basis for $45 per person.
