Huckabee to speak at Truett McConnell

By AccessWDUN Staff

Former Arkansas Governor and one-time Republican presidential hopeful Mike Hukabee will be the featured speaker next month at the 2nd Annual Faith and Freedom Celebration at Truett McConnell University.

Huckabee is the author of several best-selling books, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, a public speaker, and a political commentator on “The Huckabee Report.”  He ran for the Republican nomination in the 2008 and 2016 presidential elections, and eventually became one of President Donald Trump's most ardent supporters. His daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, currently serves as White House Press Secretary.

Todd Starnes, columnist, author, and host of the “Todd Starnes Show” and “Starnes Country” on Fox News radio will emcee the event.

All of the proceeds will help fund the Empower the Call campaign which provides assistance for student mission trips, creates retention scholarships and reduces missionary student debt.

Event ticket options include bleacher seating for $25 or table seating with dinner for $250. Dinner tables of eight are also available for $2,000 can also be reserved.

Dinner will be held at 5:15 p.m., followed by the program and a book signing.

To purchase tickets, or for more information, visit or call the TMU office of Advancement at 706-865-2134, ext. 3801.
