(Washington, D.C.) – For the first time in over two years, WGTS 91.9 held its Night of Hope event in-person. Night of Hope is a free event, with music and an inspirational message designed to bring hope and encouragement to WGTS listeners and friends. Several hundred people gathered on a recent Friday night at the Capital Turnaround in Washington, D.C., to hear worship music from Hope Darst and an inspirational message from Pastor Charles Tapp, who is also the WGTS board chair. National Community Church and the Impact Collective, an event planning company, donated the Capital Turnaround venue for the event.
Adventist Healthcare also helped sponsor the event to make sure it could be free to the community. At the end of the night, attendees were invited to come down to connect with a local pastor or a member of the WGTS prayer team for special prayer or to make a commitment to Christ.
“The entire reason WGTS 91.9 exists is to encourage our listening family to take one step closer to Christ,” said WGTS general manager and president Kevin Krueger. “What I love about ‘Night of Hope’ is that it can be the point where many listeners decide to take that first step. To have a small part in a listener’s journey toward Christ is the ultimate privilege of this ministry.”
