On Saturday, Nov. 2, at Canyon West Clubhouse, Weatherford Christian School will host its 10th Annual Faith Promise Dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. First National Bank President Lin Bearden will emcee the evening that has become not only one of the school’s largest fundraisers but one of the communities as well. Last year’s event raised more than $120,000, which enables the school to keep non-denominational Christian education affordable for families in Parker County.

Weatherford Christian School expects close to 200 people for this event. Guests will be treated to a “delicious meal” catered by Copper Creek Restaurant and a “truly unforgettable” keynote presentation by minister, author and inspirational speaker Don Piper.

Piper is best known for his New York Times bestselling book 90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life. The book tells Piper’s personal story of how he was “killed in a horrific car crash in 1989 but through the power of prayer by another minister for 90 minutes he was actually given a second chance at life.” He would spend the next 13 months and 34 major surgeries, including some never before attempted in the United States, trying to regain the life he once knew. Piper has shared his story of hope and healing across the globe including to audiences from NBC’s Today Show, Dateline NBC, ABC’s Nightline, FOX Network’s Sean Hannity’s America and The O’Reilly Factor. He has become known around the world as the “Minister of Hope” and Weatherford Christian School is pleased to announce him as this year’s keynote for their 10th anniversary event.

Seating is limited for the 2013 Faith Promise Diner and tickets can be reserved for $20 each by calling the Weatherford Christian School office at 817-596-7807 x. 327 or e-mailing Leslie Chalmers, Director of Development, at There are also sponsorships still available for this event.
