Where is the Hootenanny?
The grand and elegant barn at The Vineyard of Howe Farms is the perfect setting for a hootenanny. Howe Farms is located approximately 45 mins northeast of Chattanooga in a beautiful setting at 7600 Runyan Road, Georgetown TN 37336.
We are grateful to the Howe's for discounting the use of this amazing facility, complete with beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces, including a playground for kids and a pond.
Guest Speaker: Bethany Foran - Out of Darkness
Bethany is the residential coordinator for Out of Darkness, overseeing the operations of staff and residents in the safe home. In 2011 she opened the first safe home for Atlanta Dream Center where she began developing practices and care models for crisis stabilization.
Since then she has helped reach, rescue and restore the lives of over 1200 women, ministering to them, placing them in long-term programs (including Blazing Hope Ranch) and helping them overcome a lifestyle that she once lived. Her own testimony empowers her to instill hope and life into each woman and to lead with relatable wisdom.
Special Music: TRACK 145
