Tony Evans, nationally known preacher and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, will join Helping Florence Flourish at the Florence Civic Center to teach us about "Oneness Embraced" and give us a biblical and pastoral guide for striving for unity across racial and socioeconomic divides in Florence, SC.

We must learn to live together as brothers, or we will perish together as fools”  -Martin Luther King Jr.

With the Bible as a guide and Heaven as the goal, "Oneness Embraced "calls God's people to kingdom-focused unity. It tells us why we don't have it, what we need to get it, and what it will look like when we do. Our prayer is for a significant impact on the body of Christ.

Tony Evans "Oneness Embraced" event is presented by Helping Florence Flourish (HFF), a Christian initiative that seeks to improve Florence in four critical areas: Education, Homelessness, Deterioration of the Family & Racial Division

Come join us as over 200 churches, pastors, and community leaders come together to learn, pray, and bless Florence.
