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.
