2017 Gala: An Evening of Hope for Life

On Tuesday, October 17th, almost 300 people gathered together at the Hilton Washington Dulles for the Mosaic Virginia Annual Gala. Pastor Brian Bales of Christian Fellowship Church, who recently joined Mosaic’s Board, was our Emcee and began the evening by introducing former client, Kimberly and her son Aiden (you may have noticed their photos on the invitations).


Our keynote speaker, Scott Klusendorf, President of Life Training Institute, was very engaging and spoke about how each one of us can carry on a prof life conversation.  To learn more, visit www.prolifetraining.com.

Maggie Downing, Executive Director and Fred, Board Chair shared an update on the ministry and their vision for Mosaic’s expansion in Reaching our Community for Life. We celebrated all the Lord has accomplished this past year and looked ahead to what He is calling us to do next.

Fred shared the financial goal of $344,000 and presented a matching gift fund established by several generous Mosaic partners.  We are delighted to report that the match was not only met, but surpassed!  We give thanks to the Lord for a record breaking year of $205,360!  Gifts are still coming in, so please pray with us to be able to meet our goal by year end. It’s not too late to partner with us to meet our goal!

Of course, a highlight of every Gala is the client testimony and this year was no exception.  Nik and Anie’s story is a wonderful example of the way God uses Mosaic to save lives and strengthen families.  Their new baby girl, Natalie, is a gift from the Lord and a joy to her parents!

Finally, the evening concluded in worship to the One who was truly glorified that night as we all sang “Good Good Father” led by our very own Men’s Ministry Leader, Tim Atkins.  A perfect way to end a beautiful evening, giving thanks and praise to God.
