Living Hope is thrilled to announce a special Benefit concert which will be hosted on the 26th April 2012 at Brentwood Baptist, TN and promises to be a night full of entertainment and meaningful worship.

The concert will form part of this year’s Worship Leader “Song DISCovery Conference” and will coincide with our annual partners conference. Not only will we be treated to songs by Michael W Smith, but the line- up includes artists like Tommy Walker, Jennie Lee Riddle, Michael Farren, Meredith Andrews and Shelly E Johnson.

For all those attending the concert, you will have the opportunity to purchase the new Michael W Smith song which he wrote and produced for Living Hope. This song is featured on a CD that will be available on the night of the concert. This CD was a dream project that involved a choir from Masiphumelele and has had input from Jars of Clay and Casting Crowns in its production.

But that is not all! We will also use this opportunity to launch a book entitled:” Faces of Hope”, that was written by Allen Allnoch, a volunteer from the US that worked at Living Hope. This book features the stories of the people who have been touched and changed by the work that Living Hope is doing in the communities we serve. It is a beautiful book and will be on sale at the concert too.

So bring your friends and your family along on 26th April at 6.30pm to Brentwood Baptist, TN For more info about the night of worship, please email

*The concert is a non ticketed event so there is no charge for entrance, however, as it is a benefit concert, we appeal to all to open their hearts and give towards Living Hope in a generous way. Our focus on the night will be to raise funds for our DAD program which allows Life Skills Educators to work with children and teens in impoverished and challenging home-circumstances to bring hope and to show God’s love. Through the various programs offered, the children have a place to feel at home and loved, while learning about sexual abstinence and other lifestyle issues. The program also includes parenting classes extending Living Hope’s influence into the home.
