AWARD-WINNING TRIO POINT OF GRACE COMMEMORATES 10 YEARS OF “GIRLS OF GRACE” IN EDEN PRAIRIE ON SEPTEMBER 22
On September 22, Point of Grace was presented with plaques commemorating 10 years of their time-tested event for teen girls, “Girls of Grace,” in Eden Prairie, MN. Artists Britt Nicole, for KING & COUNTRY and Meredith Andrews were on hand for the celebration in addition to renowned guest speakers, Chris Wheeler, Annie Downs, Amber Lehman and Constance Rhodes. The “Girls of Grace” events have impacted the lives of over 100,000 young women over the past decade.
In 2002, Point of Grace founded the “Girls of Grace” conferences with the desire to bring teen girls together to talk about issues that affect them. "It's hard to believe that 10 years has gone by since our very first Girls of Grace conference in Orlando, Florida,” said Shelley Breen of Point of Grace. “We are humbled that we continue to hear stories from girls all over the country about life-changing decisions that were made at a Girls of Grace. Leigh, Denise and I can never express our gratitude to Word Records for breathing new life into this event, with a passion we could have never imagined. In my heart, I know this is only the beginning of what God is going to do with this incredible team of speakers and artists that we are blessed with in this new season of Girls of Grace.” The 10th Anniversary Season, “Girls of Grace: The Beautiful Truth,” will continue throughout May 4, 2013 when it concludes in Atlanta, GA.
The conference is a day-long interactive high-energy event for girls in 6th – 12th grades featuring live music and speakers that focus on age-related issue with a positive Christian message. 98.5 KTIS, SUSIE Magazine, WinShape Camps, Zondervan, ChildFund, Grand Canyon University and NewReleaseTuesday.com served as sponsors of the event.
