Anne Graham Lotz - Effective Prayer - For such a time as this! Please Join Us.


For Immediate Release
October 24, 2018


The “Effective Prayer for Such a Time as This” event, featuring internationally-known Bible teacher Anne Graham Lotz and noted musician Fernando Ortega, postponed because of Hurricane Florence, has been delayed for at least a year.

The local task force planning the event said setting a new date depends on matching the availability of Winthrop Coliseum with Ms. Lotz’ schedule after she concludes medical treatment next year. The week before the Rock Hill event she announced that she had breast cancer and had scheduled surgery on Sept. 18, after speaking in Rock Hill. And, throughout the upcoming months, please continue to keep Anne in your prayers as she undergoes treatment.

“We certainly share everyone’s disappointment that the hurricane caused the postponement of the event,” said Mike O’Dell, spokesperson for the sponsoring Seeking God of York County Task Force. O’Dell is Director of Missions for York Baptist Association.

The Seeking God Task Force wants you to know that during the time of praying, planning and preparing for Anne and Fernando to come to Rock Hill, the Lord brought numerous and diverse people together, impacted countless hearts and did many amazing things only He could do. To God be the glory!

“Because of the time lapse before another event can be scheduled, we are offering the several thousand people who purchased tickets the opportunity either to donate the cost paid for the ticket(s) to go toward current expenses and the future event with Anne or to receive a refund,” O’Dell said. Expenses incurred by the sponsoring group include billboards, mailings and social media advertising. Anne Graham Lotz does not charge a speaking fee. If for any reason we are not able to have this event, excess funds will be donated to Anne’s ministry, AnGeL Ministries.

To receive a refund for tickets purchased, either bring your ticket(s) in person to the York Baptist Association, 434 Museum Road in Rock Hill, between the hours 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Thursday. Or, mail your ticket(s), along with your name and address, to Effective Prayer Event, York Baptist Association, PO Box 36817, Rock Hill, SC 29732. Refund requests must be received by December 15.

Persons who purchased tickets, regardless of where they were purchased, will receive a refund of $10.00 per ticket in cash or by check. If you have any questions, call the York County Baptist Association: 803-327-6144.
