Join us on Sunday, May 6th, at the Dallas Omni, where over 1,000 NRA Members will gather for a time of inspiration and encouragement.
We'll have speakers who will challenge you with stirring words of freedom and faith, great music and food. This is one of the key events at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.
We look forward to seeing you there.
Keynote Speaker: Col. Oliver North
Colonel North is hero of freedom in many ways, from his service in our Military earning the Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart medals, to his long tenured service on the NRA Board of Directors. Oliver Laurence North is an American political commentator and television host, military historian, New York Times best-selling author, and retired United States Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel. He founded the Freedom Alliance to advance the American heritage of freedom by honoring and encouraging military service, defending the sovereignty of the United States, and promoting a strong national defense. The foundation's primary activities include providing support for wounded combat soldiers and providing scholarships for the sons and the daughters of service members killed in action. Mr. North was one of the first to speak at Inaugural National Prayer Breakfast over 25 years ago and will be delivering a poignant talk at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast, as he loves to share the freedom found in his Savior, Jesus Christ.
Inspirational Testimony: Adam LaRoche
Putting family first, former 1st basemen and slugger Adam LaRoche walked away from a career and contract that would have paid him $13 million dollars, because the team president told Adam that he had to limit the time his 14-year-old son, Drake, spent with the team. Adam's response when questioned about his decision: “Thank you Lord for the game of baseball and for giving me way more than I ever deserved!”
Hunting and the outdoors have always been in Adam’s blood. When Adam is not tossing the baseball around, he is usually preparing for the next hunting season. Adam is part of the Buck Commander TV series and thrives off of the energy and laughter his other celebrity buddies bring to the hunting camp.
Worship Singer: Scotty Wilbanks
Scotty Wilbanks is a Grammy Nominated, multiple Dove award winning record producer, as well as an award winning songwriter. As the keyboard player for the Christian band Third day, he has toured the world and performed on many TV shows including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Late show with Craig Ferguson. He started his full-time career in 1993 by joining the band Newsong as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. Today he spends most of his time in his recording studio "The Rockporium" and with his family. He has been married to his wife DeDe for nineteen years, and they have three children Levi, Lucy, and Boston.
