Church Alive Ministries to host ladies conference on Aug. 26

Posted

“Break Forth,” a ladies conference, will be held Aug. 26, at 10 a.m. followed by a luncheon.

The event is being hosted by Lighting the Way Outreach and Church Alive Ministries at Church Alive, 6315 Mouse Creek Road. Pastors Bob and Sandra Malone will be the host of the event.

The theme,”Break Forth,” is based on Isaiah 58:8 (NIV). The ministry team for the event will be Ann Nicholson, Tom Nicholson and Sid Renfro.

At a very early age, the call to music was obvious with Ann Nicholson’s evolving gifts. She started her professional music career in 1967, at the age of 17. She spent the next 22 years recording, doing TV appearances, and traveling on world and U.S. tours with many secular recording artists such as Joe Cocker, Leon Russell, Ritchie Havens and Todd Rundgren. Her American TV appearances included “Saturday Night Live” and “The Midnight Special.”

She has also had the privilege of recording several gospel CDs with her friend of 50 years, Christian artist and minister Phil Driscoll.

Tom Nicholson’s grandmother, who was a church organist for 35 years, became instrumental in his budding musical career. She spent many hours mentoring and encouraging him to use his gifts in the service of Jesus Christ. He started playing the organ in his local church, The Hokendaqua Presbyterian Church in Whitehall, Pa., at 13.

Tom received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 16. He also played, recorded and toured with Joe Cocker, Robbie Dupree, Orleans and Todd Rundgren during the 1980s.

Ann and Tom re-dedicated their lives to Jesus Christ in 1989. Over the next nine years, they ministered in churches, conferences, prisons and drug rehabilitation facilities. They moved to Cleveland in 1998.

They have ministered for more than 20 years as The Trinity Session Ministries.

They have their first gospel CD, “God Song,” and are in production of their second CD titled, “The Journey.”

Renfro was born and raised in a pastor’s home in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, where she served in several areas of ministry.

She is married to Dr. Tom Renfro, M.D., who was healed of terminal cancer in 1997. Sid and Doc travel the world sharing this miraculous testimony and preaching the gospel in churches and conferences.

They host a weekly television program called “Walking in the Kingdom.”

Luncheon will follow the meeting at no charge. Contact Linda Odom at lodom824@gmail.com for a reservation so they can prepare for the luncheon.
