Denver is the host city for Christian publisher mogul, Thomas Nelson’s, Women of Faith Celebrate What Matters Tour this weekend, September 28-29, 2012. It takes place at the Pepsi Center. The corporation’s Regional Manager, Amy Richissin, says “The Denver celebration is a one of a kind event. We do a much bigger and a much larger tour here than other cities. This will be our 16th year and we’re going strong. We love coming to Colorado.”
This tour spans over 4 months, hitting 23 cities and offers a diverse line up of 27 world-class speakers, best-selling authors—including New York Times best–along with chart topping musicians. The production spares no expense, featuring a live worship band, a new state-of-the art stage and a stellar ballet performance created by award-winning dancer Kathy Thibodeaux in collaboration with her husband, Keith (best known as “Little Ricky” on the I Love Lucy television series). In addition, comedian and storyteller, Ken Davis, plus co-host of “The Messenger” TV program, Lisa Bevere, and multiple Grammy winning singer CeCe Winans are among the prominent headliners.
Women of Faith Event Coordinator, Dawn Kuster, started attending the celebration tours when she was 21 and became employed by the corporation a few years later. She’s now 34. She says, “Our demographics are multi-generational. We have the moms with babies and lots of teens love attending the concerts. We have all ages of women. It’s a bunch of girlfriends coming together for fun. I mean, I come with my mom, my daughter and my grandma. We’re all together celebrating our Christian lives. And, we celebrate answers —a new husband, beating cancer—celebrating everything we have as children of God.”
To date, over ten thousand women have already registered. Richissin says, “A unique group of women are involved in every aspect of this event. The speakers, the attendees—everyone. This is a celebration that understands the needs of all women. We all walk away changed.” Kuster continues, “This is a very speaker friendly event. Church history or lack thereof is not our focus. Although we are an organization that is well connected to ministries all over the country, we reach out to those who are not. We welcome women of all walks of life with different histories.”
