Hope Grows Benefit
Presented by the Refuge Center for Counseling. This event is our single most important fundraiser that provides us with the support needed to advance our mission of providing affordable, professional counseling services in order to empower, educate, and support individuals, couples and families in need. We also honor a member of the Middle Tennessee community who exemplifies our values with our annual Hope Award. We were honored to present our 2018 Hope Award to Taj and Eddie George.
We are thrilled to welcome Grammy-award winning artists Jars of Clay as our musical guest. The Nashville-based Christian rock band achieved resounding success in the field of Christian alternative rock by infusing creativity with religion, music with scripture, and a distinctive musical style with traditional viewpoints. They broke into mainstream radio, video, and retail in 1996, and sold millions of records since their debut. The band’s name was inspired by the II Corinthians 4:7 verse in the Bible that reads, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” The verse, which refers to the frailty of humanity and our earthly bodies, is also the lyric of the song “Four Seven” on the band’s debut release.
