Published 12:00 am Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Tickets are on sale for this year’s Sav-A-Life banquet which will be held next month, organizers said Wednesday.

Guest speaker will be Dr. Del Tackett, and the banquet will feature special music and an update on the ministry.

“You don’t want to miss this inspiring evening of ministry,” said Jan White of Sav-A-Life.

Tacket is the architect and teacher of “The Truth Project,” a worldwide small group initiative designed to instill a Christian worldview within participants.

“Truth Project small groups are currently active in over 130 countries and estimates are that 5 to 7 million people have attended the study,” White said. “He is currently working on a new three-part series that will greatly expand that original work and present critical follow-up worldview material with the hope and prayer to see the body of Christ vibrant and active, changing the world one neighbor at a time.”

Tacket recently wrote and co-hosted the television series “Cross Examine,” presenting biblical worldview teaching through the use of real-life stories.

“He currently teaches biblical studies of social order at the Focus Leadership Institute, a semester program for college students,” White said. “He served as the president of the Leadership Institute for five years as well as executive vice president of Focus on the Family.”

He served in the United States Air Force for more than 20 years.

During the George H.W. Bush administration, he served at the White House, where he was appointed by President Bush as the director of technical planning for the National Security Council.

Tickets are $15 and are available in Andalusia at Tabby D’s Christian Book & Gift Shop, the Opp and Covington County Chamber of Commerce, Larry’s Prescriptions, Florala Pharmacy and First Baptist Church Florala.
