We have a long record of hosting distinguished international, national and local speakers on a wide variety of topics beneficial to our city, the strengthening of the churches and individuals seeking ways to put their faith in action in their daily lives.
The events for 2008 cover a broad spectrum of issues and locations. Please keep in mind these are FREE noontime events but seating is limited and those attending must R.S.V.P. in advance. Don't miss your opportunity to hear from informative speakers covering a wide range of subjects that should be of interest to people of faith in Chattanooga. Some locations of these events are still to be determined based on seating availability. But, please keep checking back on our web site for future details.
Wednesday-March 19th: Mr. Michael Landguth, President & C.E.O. of the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport.
Chattanooga's airport is a vital component for future economic growth in our region and each citizen can play a role in the success or failure of luring new, less expensive carriers and destinations. Under Mr. Landguth's leadership our airport has experi8enced record passenger growth but there is much more we can do as a faith-based community to support his efforts. The future quality of life in Chattanooga is served by increased air service. This also means new jobs, new opportunities for colleges and schools in the area and a host of other quality of life issues. In fact, most in the community may not even be aware that one airline now services Chattanooga with non-stop jet service to Orlando/Disney World for fares beginning as low as $39! This will be a highly informative speaker event and we urge you to join us and bring along a friend, family member or colleague.
