Renowned author Josh McDowell to speak at Christian Learning Center’s 20th Anniversary Friends and Fundraising Banquet
GREENVILLE, S.C. – Christian author Josh McDowell has addressed more than 25 million people, giving over 27,000 talks in 125 countries – and now he is coming to Greenville.
McDowell will be the guest speaker at the Christian Learning Centers of Greenville County’s 20th Anniversary Friends and Fundraising Banquet on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 from 5:15 p.m. to 6 p.m., said Janice Butler the organization’s executive director. Ticket can be purchased at clcogreenville.org.
“Christians Learning Centers is celebrating 20 years in Greenville, and we wanted to bring in a speaker who can share an amazing message with our friends and partners,” Butler said. “This event is aimed at bring all of us together to grow and learn in Christ’s message.”
Christian Learning Centers provides biblical instruction to school-aged children as an opportunity to encourage them to embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ, grow in the Christian faith, and apply biblical principles for living, Butler said. The program serves more than 1,800 students in 17 middle schools and two high schools in Greenville.
It is a Released-Time program, which is a time during the school day when students are released from school to study Bible at an off-school campus location, Butler said.
“We provide a service to allow young people to learn more about Christ and Biblical teachings,” she said. “We want the greater Greenville community to know more about what we do and we believe Josh McDowell will help share this message.”
Since 1960, McDowell has written or co-authored 147 books in more than 100 languages including. His two most well-known books are: More Than a Carpenter, which has more than 27 million copies distributed and New Evidence That Demands a Verdict — named one the Twentieth Century’s top 40 books and one of the thirteen most influential books of the last 50 years on Christian thought by World Magazine.
In addition to many other awards, Josh has been nominated 36 times for the Gold Medallion Award, which recognizes the highest quality in Christian books, and has received that award on four occasions.
“We want the Greenville community to come and hear our story and Josh’s,” Butler said.
