All proceeds from the event will fund the Empower the Call campaign, which provides assistance for student mission trips, creates retention scholarships, and reduces missionary student debt, allowing TMU alumni currently on the mission field to remain and continue sharing the gospel message.

Event ticket options include: bleacher seating for $25 or table seating with dinner for $250. Dinner tables of eight are also available for $2,000, which includes a reception with North and Starnes.
