The five-day Inspiration Weekend opened up with the explosive vocals of Mandisa and ended with the last of a series of powerful messages by Charles Stanley, Senior Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta. Thousands of people attended, and the rain held off for the whole event despite stormy forecasts.
People from 39 states including Hawaii and Alaska experienced the inspirational music and messages. There was even someone from Hong Kong, bringing attention to the International reach of Dr. Stanley’s teaching.
Every evening, Dr. Stanley challenged the attendees to make life-changing decisions and hundreds indicated that they had accepted that challenge.
Overall, the music and the comedy were incredible, and the teaching was simple, clear, and Biblical. Organizers are already beginning to think about next year’s event.
