Weatherford Christian School is quickly approaching the 13th annual Faith Promise Dinner, a fundraising event that will take place on Sat., Nov.12th at Northside Baptist Church Youth Room beginning at 6:30pm. This dinner enables parents, grandparents, business owners and longtime supporters to hear and see first-hand all the incredible progress and advancements taking place at the local, dually accredited, nondenominational Christian School.

Guests will enjoy a sit down dinner catered by Reata Restaurant and hear an inspiring message by God’s Not Dead star, David A.R. White. The event has appropriately been themed “An Inspiring Evening in Black & White,” again emphasizing the importance of the school’s mission that was derived from a biblically based curriculum in order to provide a Christ -centered education where children are equipped for lives of Christian leadership and service.

White, the keynote speaker, is a storyteller by nature. And while he tells many stories through his acting, producing and film-making, a greater one encompasses them all: the calling of God on each of our lives. David has been building his career in the Film industry for more than 20 years, and in doing so he has learned a few things about following a God-given dream.

Though he has many credits to his name, David’s career hit new heights in 2014 with the release of his film God’s Not Dead. It soon became one of the most successful independent faith-based films of all time, making his studio, Pure Flix, the most successful Christian film production company in the industry.

Currently, David is working on his first book, Between Heaven and Hollywood: Chasing Your God-Given Dreams will give audiences a more complete, wide-reaching picture of how God has worked through his life in his pursuit of film-making and acting. For David, the dreams God gives a person are the highest callings one can receive, and in the book, he explores how following the Lord and your dreams simultaneously is not only possible but can be a powerful agent for furthering the Kingdom.
