Monday, October 13th Dr. Tony Evans is the 7th guest speaker of Founders Day Weekend. On previous events we have had Michael W. Smith, Michael Reagan, and Mike Huckabee as a guest speaker for Founder’s day.
The evening will consist of amazing school choir and orchestra performance, as well as Mr. Dement and Mr. Fletcher giving an introductory speech of the founding of the school and Dr. Evans speaks about his life in Christianity.
Dr. Evans preaches at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, that has 10,000 members and over 100 ministries, according to https://www.ocbfchurch.org/tonyevans. He formed the church in 1976. He is part of a men’s ministry, Promise Keepers. The ministry is to keep men pure, because if a father goes to church 93% of the family will follow. Dr. Evans was the chaplain for the Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas Mavericks.
Dr. Evans went to Dallas Theological Seminary to earn his Doctorate in Theology. He serves on a Board of Incorporate Members at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is also an author and a radio and television broadcaster.
Founder’s Day has been a fund raiser since 2008. “Founder’s day is a celebration of the founding of Brook Hill, year the event is held honoring an individual or individuals who have been important in the success of the school” says Jackie Travis. Past Events have honored Mr. Dement, Mrs. Louise Ornelas, Mrs. Ginger Bell Mr. Ben Lauderdale, Mr. and Mrs. Sharawi, Mr. and Mrs. Lake, and The Original Board of Trustees. This year will honor Brook Hill grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Schwab as the 2014 Guardian Award recipients.
