Steven Curtis Chapman to give free concert to benefit orphans

Steven Curtis Chapman will give a free concert at a Nashville area church Sun., Nov. 8 to draw attention and benefit the Cry of the Orphan ministry. Chapman, a long-standing Grammy-winning Christian music star, has adopted three children from China. His adopted daughter Maria died last year in an accident at his home. “Our experience with the miracle of adoption and the chance to touch the lives of orphans has been infinitely rich and full. It’s a privilege that God invites us to, and there are so many other children around the world who need homes and help” Chapman said. “We’re doing this event on Nov. 8 to compel people to take action right now to be involved in caring for the world’s orphans. We can each do something, whether it is donating, adopting, fostering, mentoring, visiting orphans or supporting families who have taken in orphans.” Chapman will be joined by Focus on the Family CEO Jim Daly, who was adopted as a child, and Dennis Rainey, president of the ministry Family Life, who is an adoptive father. “As someone who was orphaned as a child, I’m thrilled to see the church working together on this cause that is so close to the heart of God,” Daly said. Cry of the Orphan is designed to raise awareness and prompt action to help the more than 140 million orphans worldwide – a number equivalent to the populations of Australia and Japan combined. The event will take place at 4 p.m. on the 8th at Christ Community Church, 1215 Hillsboro Rd., Franklin, Tenn. Information on radio broadcasts and Webcasting of the event is available at the Cry of the Orphan Website. Link: Cry of the Orphan: http://www.cryoftheorphan.org/Display.asp?Page=splash
