A celebration in honor of a best-selling Christian author and pastor whose various spiritual messages have sold in the millions will take place at a church in Georgia.
Henry Blackaby, author of influential Christian works like Experiencing God and founder of Blackaby Ministries International, will be celebrating his 80th birthday and the 25th anniversary of the publication of Experiencing God.
The two-day event will be held Friday and Saturday in the worship center at First Baptist Church of Jonesboro, Georgia.
It will feature worship, music, and well wishes given by various people, including former President George W. Bush, Anne Graham Lotz, and Saddleback senior pastor Rick Warren.
Mel Blackaby, senior pastor at First Baptist Jonesboro and third son of Blackaby, told The Christian Post that “it is a wonderful time to reflect on the legacy my father has not only set for his family but for an untold number of believers across the globe.”
“It has been my honor to read every book he has written; co-author several books with him; but more importantly, see the exemplary life he has lived daily,” said Blackaby.
“Through my personal travels all over the world, I am always humbled by the number of testimonies I receive on how God has used my Dad’s writings to change lives.”
