David Phelps Headlines for the Adult & Teen Challenge 2021 FREEDOM Gala

The public is invited to attend the 2021 Freedom Gala on May 20, 2021. This event will feature world renowned tenor and Gospel artist, David Phelps and Dr. Monty Burks, Director of the Faith-based Initiative for the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse. The Gala will be held in the Chattanooga Convention Center this year and will have two seating options; lunch and dinner.

“The Freedom Gala is our annual fundraising event and an opportunity for us to introduce the ministry to guests,” says Dr. David McNabb, president, Adult & Teen Challenge MidSouth.

Guests will enjoy the entire David Phelps team, including musicians and vocalists, at each seating. Phelps, a Christian singer and songwriter, is best known for singing tenor in the Gaither Vocal Band. He has numerous Dove Awards and Grammy Awards. His seemingly endless vocal range extends more than three octaves. 

“We’re pleased to have Dr. Burks with us for this event,” he adds, saying that Dr. Burks is passionate about supporting and expanding addiction recovery support services. Guests will be able to listen to him talk about his personal connection to addiction recovery and his work engaging people of faith across the state to help in the war against addiction.

The lunch seating begins at 12 p.m. and the dinner seating begins at 6 p.m. Seats for the event are $55 or $440 for a table of eight. For those unable to attend, there will also be an option for secure simulcast links priced at $30 each.
