WGTS 91.9 hosted more than 2,200 women at the recent “Dare to Be” women’s event with Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill at the Hylton Christian Event Center. The station has hosted this event for the past five years. The event seeks to inspire women to “dare to be” the women that God has called them to be. Through music, prayer and the inspirational messages Grant and Gambill encouraged women to live their roles as wives, moms, employees, daughters and friends to the fullest. It’s a celebration of Christian womanhood.
In February 2016, after undergoing surgery, Janice Walker-Cleveland, a member of the Cincinnati Shiloh church in Ohio, sought God’s plan for her life, expressing the sentiment, “Many people search their entire lives and never find ... God’s purpose and plan.”
The only African-American female attorney at Duke Energy’s predecessor, Cincinnati Gas & Electric, Walker-Cleveland has held the positions of senior counsel and assistant general, and is currently the associate general counsel.
Passionate about the remnant people and the three angels’ messages, Walker-Cleveland spoke with her sister, Thea Walker, a member of Dallas City Temple church (Texas), about the Lord’s soon return and her personal mission to reach others.

Our Pennsylvania leadership team and Executive Committee members have been praying for unity across our conference. This fall we saw an example of what happens when God’s people unite for a common mission, as more than 1,820 members met at 23 central Pennsylvania churches to go door-to-door, distributing invitations to the Faith for Family (F4F) evangelistic series, praying with people and inviting them to study the Word of God. Powerful things happen when God’s people come together.

A new year lies before us full of hope and promise. It is a time of year to reflect and refocus. As we begin afresh, we each have goals and aspirations for the days ahead.
Many things are within our grasp; others are beyond our control. It is easy to look at unsettling global events and feel powerless. Nonetheless, each day we get to make choices that will impact how this year will unfold. We can choose to spend time with Jesus and allow Him to mold and shape our lives after His likeness. God’s Word promises “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new” (2 Cor. 5:17, NKJV).
