BETHANY — Southern Nazarene University and Bethany First Church of the Nazarene are partnering to sponsor “Night of Redemption,” a concert event featuring best-selling author Bob Goff as guest speaker.
The event, benefiting No Boundaries International, will be at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Bethany First Church of the Nazarene.
Musical guests will include contemporary Christian recording artists the Charlie Hall Band, The City Harmonic, Royal Royal and Sean McDonald, said Eric Smith, vice president of campus ministry at SNU.
Smith, 23, a senior majoring in finance, said SNU and Bethany First Church wanted to come alongside No Boundaries International as it works to combat human trafficking and prostitution in the Oklahoma City metro area.
He said a food truck recently was donated to the ministry, and the concert will raise funds to help equip the vehicle.
Smith said people around the area have helped spread the word about the concert.
He said event organizers are especially grateful that the evening will include Goff, author of the best-selling book “Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World.”
Goff is a well-known public speaker and the founder and CEO of Restore International, a nonprofit that fights injustices committed against children in Uganda and India.
Smith said he and other event coordinators have mailed information about the event to churches throughout the metro area, and people have been supportive of the effort.
“I feel like God has been in the midst of this event,” he said. “It's exciting to see the community be supportive.”
