"We welcomed many guests for this momentous occasion," said Phil Fair, executive producer. In addition to Sandi Patty, the evening featured singers Jay Rouse, Amy Rouse, Marc Clarke, Brian McSee and a 300-voice choir and symphony orchestra conducted by Randy Vader.
"It was a marvelous evening of pageantry, celebration, inspiration for the entire community, and we hope they felt invited to attend," said Fair. "It was a wonderful worship event."
"Don Moen is one of the premiere writers, arrangers and worship leaders in Christian music today, and we were indeed honored to have him in Anderson as a part of this event," said Fair.
Don Moen, Executive Vice-President and Creative Director of Integrity Music served as guest worship leader. Don Moen is well known as a musician, songwriter, singer and worship leader. He has earned critical acclaim and awards for his own musical efforts. Moen is realizing a dream of reaching thousands worldwide with tools to bring them "into the manifest presence of God."
"For many of us", Moen states, "the fact that God chooses to reveal His glory in us and through us comes as a great surprise. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to unravel the mystery of who we are in Christ that we miss the majesty of who He is In us."
