(Cleveland)- Several hundred people attended the second annual Faith and Freedom Celebration held Saturday evening in Cleveland. The event was held in the Truett McConnell University George Blaurock Student Wellness Center.
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was the featured speaker. Huckabee praised the state of Georgia and Governor Brain Kemp for the passage of the anti-abortion bill, that outlaws abortion once a doctor detects a heartbeat in the womb. He also promoted and praised the Christian direction of Truett McConnell College. Huckabee told the crowd that “ without faith, there is no Freedom.”
One hundred percent of proceeds from the event will help fund the university’s “Empower the Call” campaign which provides assistance for student mission trips, creates retention scholarships, and reduces missionary student debt.
