Billy Gray Ministries' annual fundraising dinner will be held at 6:30 p.m. May 7 at the Hilton Hotel Coastal Ballroom in Sandestin.

David Seering and Friends, a gospel singing group from Destin United Methodist Church, New River, will be there to entertain, along with a great meal and fellowship. Other than the poinsettia sale at Christmas, this is only event this year to raise funds to support the Billy Gray Ministries outreach to his missions around the world.

Through his outreach, he has ministered to people around the world for more than 20 years. From teaching Sunday school to preaching crusades on large scale stages in third world countries, his heart has been set to impact people with the love of Christ.

Gray has dedicated his life to taking the story of Jesus to people who otherwise might never hear it. He goes to the poorest places on the planet and preaches in poverty ridden places, such as prisons and shantytowns. His ministry has touched thousands around the globe, from India to the Dominican Republic. He leaves behind new churches and water filters and treatises that save lives and souls.

Tables of eight seats are $1,000 each and each seat is $125. A table can be split among friends. Sponsorships ($1,000 and above) are also available, and sponsors will be recognized during the program. If you cannot come, but wish to support the ministry, then you can just contribute $20, $50, or whatever you want to help defray the cost of the dinner.
