Mike Huckabee To Speak At Abba's House July 2

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Former pastor and governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee will join Dr. Ron Phillips and Dr. Ronnie Phillips Jr. for an All American Day celebration, oJuly 2, at 10:30 a.m. at Abba’s House.

“It’s a time for us to reflect upon how good God has been to America and how it’s time for us to be good to God.” - Mike Huckabee

All American Day will also feature the Abba’s House Choir and Orchestra under the direction of Worship Pastor Ken Hartley singing the Star-Spangled Banner, Let Freedom Ring, Salute to the Armed Forces medley, and This Land is Your Land. The Abba’s House Orchestra will perform an original instrumental arrangement titled, American Portrait. The musical portion of the celebration will conclude with a stirring new song from Bethel Worship titled, Spirit Move, which is a cry of hope for the nation.

Mr. Huckabee was the 44th governor of Arkansas from 1996 until 2007, becoming one of the longest serving governors in his state’s history, and was only the fourth Republican elected to any statewide office since Reconstruction, serving longer than the other three combined.

Officials said, "He left a legacy of tax cuts, job creation, the reconstruction of his state’s road system, K-16 education reform, and a nationally heralded and duplicated health initiative that focused on the less expensive approach of prevention than the costly big-government approach of intervention. His administration fought long-standing corruption in the state’s political machine, resulting in numerous indictments and convictions of powerful legislators and other elected officials."

In his campaign for the Republican nomination for president in 2008, he finished second to John McCain. His political action committee, HuckPac, has amassed a volunteer team with thousands of activists in all 50 states. Governor Huckabee was the host of the number one rated weekend show HUCKABEE, on the Fox News Channel, from 2008 until 2015. He also hosted The Huckabee Report – which was heard three times daily across the nation on almost 600 radio stations from 2009-2015 – and is the New York Times bestselling author of 12 books. Currently, the governor is a contributor on Fox News and one of the nation’s most sought after conservative speakers.

Abba’s House is at 5208 Hixson Pike, Hixson, TN 37343.

Roy Exum: Making A Difference

It tells about a man who walks up to a young boy on a beach, this just after a strong storm had washed hundreds of helpless starfish onto the shore. The boy was picking up the stranded starfish and, one at a time, ... (click for more)
