Bob Goff

Bob Goff is set to speak Thursday at Flint Baptist Church as a fundraiser for PATH.

PATH will present best-selling Christian author Bob Goff at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Flint Baptist Church.

He is the author of “Love Does” and “Everybody, Always,” bestsellers that encourage readers to love others without prejudice and limits.

Goff is also the author of the current bestseller “Live in Grace, Walk in Love: A 365 Day Journey” that continues his message of stepping out in confidence and love in every aspect of life.

He founded Love Does, a nonprofit organization that operates schools and pursues justice for children in Uganda, Somalia and Iraq. A lawyer, he serves as the honorary consul for the Republic of Uganda to the United States. He is an adjunct professor at Pepperdine Law School and Point Loma Nazarene University.

“At PATH, the basis of the work we do with our neighbors in need is rooted in having meaningful conversations and loving the people around us who may be difficult to love,” said Greg Grubb, executive director of PATH.

Goff also spoke in 2018 at the PATH Week Luncheon.

“Bob’s message resonated with our ... attendees and we believe that it will be empowering and inspiring for everyone who attends this event,” Grubb said.

Individual tickets are $30 and can be purchased through eventbrite.com or at pathhelps.org. For information about group and student tickets, contact Leslie Watson at 903-617-2825 or at les lie_watson@pathhelps.org.

Funds raised through “An Evening with Bob Goff” will support the ongoing work and mission of PATH.

Presenting sponsor is Flint Baptist Church. Supporting event sponsors are Chick-fil-A Tyler, First Christian Church, Marvin Methodist Church, Hospitality Health ER and KVNE 98.5/Lift 91.3 KGLY.

PATH’s services include emergency assistance, basic medical services, permanent supportive and transitional housing, income tax assistance and child mentoring.

PATH also offers a food pantry and holds seasonal drives for diapers, coats for children, fans and personal care items to provide other assistance to those in need.
