BIG NEWS: First ever Connecting Hearts in Birmingham!

Agape’s Connecting Hearts
AGAPE of Central Alabama is proud to announce the first ever Connecting Hearts event in Birmingham with special guest Sean Dietrich (Sean of the South). Sean is a columnist, and novelist, known for his commentary on life in the American South. His work has appeared in Southern Living, Good Grit, The Tallahassee Democrat, South Magazine, Yellowhammer News, the Bitter Southerner, Thom Magazine, The Mobile Press Register, and he has authored seven books.

A mediocre sailor and fisherman, a biscuit connoisseur, and barbecue competition judge, when he’s not writing, he spends much of his time aboard his fourteen-foot fishing boat (The S.S. Squirrel), along with his coonhound, Ellie Mae.

Birmingham Event
The Connecting Hearts event will take place in Birmingham on April 24th, 2018 at the Noah Event Venue in Hoover. Reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the main event starts at 6:30 p.m. All ticket holders participate in the reception and V.I.P. ticket holders will have the chance to meet and greet with the speaker.

Your support of this event will impact children and teens, throughout Central Alabama. Agape of Central Alabama is a ministry that helps children by connecting hearts through adoption and foster care. There are so many children in our area that need a loving home, and Agape sets out to match children with permanent homes with nurturing Christian families.
