Celebrating 30 Years Hearing Inspiring Words


Strickland, Sandy, The Florida Times Union


Byline: Sandy Strickland

For 30 years, Women for Christ have drawn top speakers in the Christian field and hundreds of women from across the Jacksonville area to hear them. The list has included actress Jennifer O'Neill, best-selling author and humorist Barbara Johnson and Jan Dravecky, wife of former major league pitcher Dave Dravecky.

Among others are the daughter of Billy Graham, a woman who suffered facial disfigurement and a singer who went blind. Pam Tebow, Tim's mother, was one of the biggest draws, said Debbie Kozloski, the group's public relations chairwoman.

Kozloski attributes the group's longevity, in part, to the fact that some founding members are still active and that women want to hear quality speakers in their own neighborhood rather than heading to Orlando for a weekly retreat.

Deadline for reservations is Tuesday. For information, go to the website at jaxwomenforchrist.org.
