Mark Your Calendar: 11th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Event


Central Dallas Ministries will host our 11th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Event on Tuesday, April 18, 2006.

The event begins at 7:15 a.m. in the Chantilly Ballroom of the Hilton Anatole Hotel on Stemmons Freeway.

Our speaker this year will be former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.

Currently, Edwards serves as Director of the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity, an initiative of the University of North Carolina School of Law.

The Center is definitely worth a visit to its website at: http://www.law.unc.edu/Centers/details.aspx?ID=425&Q=3.

Needless to say, everyone here at CDM is excited to be able to host Senator Edwards during his trip to Dallas.

Edwards has distinguished himself as one of the few consistent, credible voices raising questions, offering solutions and challenging the nation to not forget our fellow citizens who battle poverty.

The former Senator, and Vice-Presidential candidate in the 2004 election, is motivated to speak to the issues of poverty and equal opportunity by his own faith and personal values. His speech promises to be unforgettable and challenging.

Spread the word about our event! And, of course, plan on joining us for this very special morning!

More details will follow in the weeks ahead.

Chris, thanks for the post!

Kate Doty, Deputy Director of Development here at CDM worked for Senator Edwards in a previous life and her influence certainly didn't hurt us! Keep up the fight!
