Tickets are not required. In lieu of tickets, a Love Offering will be received to support the ministries of John Michael Talbot and the Brothers and Sisters of Charity.
Talbot’s ministry began over 40 years ago with a vision. “God gave me a vision of itinerant ministry walking on foot from parish to parish in a time of great need in our culture. I believe that our current ministry is fulfilling that vision. We are rebuilding the church one parish at a time, and renewing hearts one life at a time!”
The path our Lord has guided John Michael on throughout his life has uniquely prepared him for this time in the Church. After responding to the Lord’s call, God used John Michael to bless millions of lives through his unique and multi-faceted ministry.
