FORT WORTH, Texas
- May 5, 2016
-- Domestic Violence is confronted before a live audience at the Fort Worth Convention Center as the Women's Ministry of Gateway Church joins forces with DFW-based International Christian broadcaster, Daystar Television Network. As a part of this year's annual conference, Daystar is producing the network's original program, Joni Table Talk, live before an anticipated audience of 10,000 women. These two partners are taking a united stand to bring attention to a dark, deadly nightmare too many women face every day.
As one of America's fastest growing churches, Gateway has 6 locations across the DFW metroplex including the newly opened campus in Dallas. Pink Impact is the church's largest women's gathering of the year, and has quickly become one of the most popular conferences since Gateway was founded in 2000. Since 2006, Pink Impact has been a gathering place for women from all over the nation who come together to have an encounter with God, connect with other women and have a lot of fun along the way. In past years, the gathering was held over two consecutive weekends at the Southlake campus to accommodate demand. However, in an effort to bring everyone together in one location, the Fort Worth Convention Center proved to be the ideal location for this year's event.
No stranger to hard-hitting, and even controversial topics, Joni Table Talk is a Daystar original talk show covering subjects such as Racism in America, Addiction Recovery, Depression, and more. During the conference, the table will bring awareness to Domestic Violence, which affects 1 in every 5 women. The discussion will center on testimonies from renowned Christian recording artist Nicole C. Mullen and Dorothy Newton, the New Family Pastor at Gateway's Dallas campus and former wife of three-time Super Bowl champion Nate Newton. Both women openly share about the horrors they faced, including threats to their lives while in an abusive marriage.
"We are so honored to be able to bring Joni Table Talk to the women attending Pink Impact," says Debbie Morris, conference host and co-pastor of Gateway. "Both Daystar and our church are built on the idea of loving people where they are. And we have a responsibility to reach out and help those suffering in abusive relationships."
"Gateway has always been a voice against social injustices. By partnering together, we believe we can help start conversations about the topic of domestic violence, which affects so many women around the globe each year," says Joni Lamb, program host and Daystar co-founder.
Along with adding the production of Joni Table Talk to the itinerary, Daystar Television Network will be on location for the May 13th-14th event, capturing the live energy of the conference. For those unable to attend, the network will begin airing Pink Impact to its international audiences August 15th-19th.
