While many people on the cusp of a brand new year focus on making changes in their lives regarding diet and fitness, the Dare to Be movement, in partnership with Regent University, is encouraging women to resolve to be who God has made them to be.

"Regent University is proud to sponsor Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill and the Dare to Be events around the country. We wanted to support their effort to encourage women to achieve their goals and live lives of purpose," said Sherri Miller, vice president of University Marketing & Public Relations. "Our friendship with these two ladies is special to Regent, the event is high energy and inspiring, and we welcome them to Virginia Beach."

On Jan. 23, at 7 p.m., the Dare to Be tour with author and speaker Charlotte Gambill and Grammy-nominated singer Natalie Grant, will make a one-night stop at Wave Church in Virginia Beach. Women in the Hampton Roads community are invited to participate in this event of worship and learning.

"Dare to Be is a movement of women who would say 'but I believe I can become unsafe,'" said Grant in a promotional video for Dare to Be. "This is a movement that says 'I can go further.'"

Through the years in their respective pockets of ministry, Gambill and Grant have grown to challenge women to not simply fall into ordinary lives and routines, but to become precisely who God has called them to be.

"He knows what's inside of us, He knows what we're capable of, and sometimes all we have to do is dare to believe that," said Gambill.

Dare to Be is an "invitation" that Gambill and Grant hope that women across the nation will accept—opening their lives and futures to the possibility that God could be calling them to more.

"You can begin to believe that you are who God says that you are," said Grant. "How would that change your life?"

Doors open at 6 p.m. Enter promotional code "REGENT" for special ticket prices for female members and friends of the Regent community.
