Opportunity to meet Newt Gingrich on Wednesday

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and prospective presidential candidate, will be in Houston THIS WEDNESDAY for an event raising funds for a well known local benevolent ministry in the downtown area.

 He has asked us to invite a small group of pastors to join him on a tour of the facilities as shown below and if you are interested please RSVP to me directly at and I will send you location specifics.

 We will need to know by tomorrow afternoon and when we reach 20 signed up we will have to close it out due to space limitations.

 Wednesday, March 23

3:00 p.m. – tour of ministry facility

4:00 p.m. – event begins (pastors invited to stay if you wish)
