Nashville, Tenn –April 18, 2012 –This past weekend women in Oklahoma City and Lafayette gathered to celebrate the debut Dare To Be events. This revolutionary event features Nashville based four-time GMA Female Vocalist of the Year and 2012 GRAMMY Award® nominee Natalie Grant, alongside international speaker and author Charlotte Gambill.

Dare To Be, a brand new live women’s event birthed from a realization of a dream from two close friends, kicked off its 2012 spring tour on April 12. The tour continues through April and May (dates below). Both events this past week included a packed house of women from all walks of life aiming higher, stretching further – rediscovering their God- given dreams.

Presented by World Vision and sponsored by Regent University, the Dare To Be nationwide events highlight Grant and Gambill’s unique American, English combination. Each evening features Grant’s musical talent and Gambill’s powerful speaking, bringing to life a practical interpretation of God’s word that remains alive for our everyday challenges.

In addition to the evening programming, Grant and Gambill are honoring a local extraordinary woman in every market – someone who is currently daring to be. Anyone can be nominated by sending a nomination email to and sharing why the nominee should be honored.

Last weekend, two women were honored at the Dare To Be events. After a life of hardships and loosing her son in a tragic accident, the Oklahoma City honoree Fay Glenn remains a pillar of strength for those around her. In Lafayette, honoree Allison Prince is a wonderful example of a single mom working diligently to support her family while maintaining two jobs working 24-7 each week and still giving back to others in need. Crossroads Church partnered with Dare To Be and donated $1000 to Allison Prince in honor of her continuous dedication to her family and community.

No newcomer to the Christian arena, Grant’s work has gained international acclaim, including a GRAMMY nomination and four consecutive Dove Awards for Female Vocalist of the year. She is married to producer Bernie Herms and they have three children Grace Ana, Isabella Noelle and Sadie Rose.

Gambill is an international speaker and author, best known for her practical and passionate application of God’s word. Her messages of life and purpose are rallying a generation to embrace the broken and become ambassadors of hope. Gambill helps lead Abundant Life Church in England. She and her husband Steve have two children, Hope Cherish and Noah Brave.

For the first years of their friendship, Grant and Gambill ministered together on several occasions in the UK and USA. Complete strangers at first, God instantly knit their lives together. Now six year later, they are the closest friends and are excited to be walking out a purpose that God united them for.
