This amazing gathering was built around the theme, “It’s love that we’re fighting for.” In 2020, that theme took different forms for the SFF ministry, including connecting with hundreds of new participants in call-in Bible studies and launching a new virtual concert series, “At Home Concert Experience,” that reached more than 22,000 people around the globe.
The love and encouragement that SFF spread throughout the year culminated with the gala. The event featured encouraging messages of hope, a recap of the ministry’s impact in 2020, and amazing live musical performances.
Spotlighting Ministry Impact and Christian Artists in Music City
A gala in Music City would not be complete without stellar musical performances. The gala featured live performances from these Christian artists:
- Unspoken lead singer Chad Mattson, who helped spearhead the launch of the At Home Concert Experience (AHCX).
- Surprise guest Darren Mulligan from We Are Messengers, who participated in the Series 2 finale of AHCX.
- American Idol finalist David Archuleta, who recently released new songs and a new music video.
- Marlena VanHoose, an amazing artist who has overcome disability to encourage millions of people with her voice.
The group in attendance heard so many great stories about how SFF made a difference in the lives of people who experienced difficult circumstances being separated from their family, friends, community, or church this year.
"It is amazing how God prepared the ministry for what occurred in 2020 and gave us the ability to impact so many lives. Our first annual Gala was a testament to that and was a home run in terms of impact and partnership for 2021,” says Kelly McAndrew, AM CEO and the Founder of the ministry.
