Christ United Methodist Church’s Women’s Ministry will present “A Night of Encouragement” with humorist Jeanne Robertson on May 3, at 8 p.m. at Christ United Methodist Church. 

Award-winning speaker Jeanne Robertson is an expert in humor, whether regaling audiences with her experiences as a 6'2" Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant or outlining the steps to developing a sense of humor. Jeanne is past president of the National Speakers Association and was the first woman to win NSA's top honor, the Cavett Award. She was also honored by Toastmasters International when it named her the recipient of its Golden Gavel Award, presented annually to one individual who has demonstrated outstanding skills in communication and leadership.

You may have seen this Speakers Hall of Fame inductee being interviewed by CBS correspondent Morley Safer on “60 Minutes”, or seen one of her speeches on public television, or heard her on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s family comedy channels, or read one of her three books on humor, or seen one of the nine humor DVD’s she has released in past 20 years. But only when you hear her in person in Chattanooga will you appreciate why audiences across the nation proclaim, “The meeting ‘ain’t over ‘til the tall lady speaks.”

General admission tickets are available online at ChristChurchChatt.org for $35. Christ United Methodist Church is at 8645 East Brainerd Road, across from Publix.
