NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Inspired by the growing spiritual needs of today's Christian

women, the all-new Dare to Be Revolution movement returns in January with Dare to Be...The Journey Continues event tour.

The event will cross the U.S. and create an experience for women of all ages to come together and 'dare to be' empowered to make a difference in their life, their family and community. The Avenue Church in Waxahachie will host the Texas stop. The church is located at 210 YMCA Dr.

The night is created for women to unwind, to refresh and to celebrate life with

other women in their lives. They will be dared to follow their dreams, challenged to do more than they ever thought possible and asked let go of their fears and embrace who they truly are in Christ.

At each event, Dare to Be will honor one local woman who has overcome extraordinary circumstances and is now an inspiration to others by making a difference in her community.

Nominations will be taken in each city, and Dare to Be will surprise one woman at each event. Nominee stories may be submitted to Natalie and Charlotte for consideration at

The three-hour event is a fully-integrated evening of teaching, music and media that will infuse worship and Bible-teaching into one evening of content. The tour is scheduled to hit more than a dozen cities in early 2014 with a lineup which includes Grammy-nominated vocalist Natalie Grant and international speaker, Bible teacher and author Charlotte Gambill. The combination of this powerhouse duo is expected to bring laughter and moments to Tweet about. At the same time, Dare to Be speaks directly to a woman's heart and is uplifting and healing.

"I have struggled with self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy, so this event came from a personal place for me," said Grant. "We all need to be reminded that we are who God says that we are, and that He will equip us with everything we need. It's been incredibly rewarding to see women grab a hold of these truths, and it has strengthened my faith in the process."

"We are so excited about our next adventure of event: Dare to Be...The Journey Continues," said Gambill. "This past year we saw the launch of the Dare to Be ministry that God created in our hearts, and we were amazed at how God moved when we stepped out, together as friends, to His challenge. We sensed the urgency of God to dare to be all that He was calling us to be, and we knew He was taking us on an adventure with Him. We can't wait to be on the road to meet so many new friends, worship God, and open His word."

Tickets are currently on sale at the website, and starting Oct. 14, 2013 many radio station partners will let their listeners know about a special bundle they can purchase for one week only: Grant’s "Hurricane" CD and a general admission ticket to Dare to Be for only $20.00.
