All proceeds from the event go to Warhawks for Christ. Warhawks For Christ is a campus ministry sponsored by the University church in Monroe. It is open to anyone college-aged whether or not they are in college. The ministry focuses on connecting to students of the area colleges including ULM and Delta Community College. Al Cherry, also known as "big AL," is a gospel/hip-hop artist and the youth pastor at Christian Fellowship Assembly of God in Monroe as well as the mathematics department head of Richwood High School, teaching Geometry, Trigonometry, and AP Calculus. Axios is a worship band based in Joplin, Mo. The four-man group sees their primary ministry as speaking/acting truth and love into the lives of everyone they meet. Their songs lyrics are built on sound biblical doctrine. First Day is a five-man all-vocal band performing contemporary songs of praise and southern gospel. The group features tight harmonies, deep bass, amazing vocal percussion, and meaningful lyrics that deliver a bold style of a cappella music to glorify God and encourage the listener. Doors open for students at 4:30 p.m., with general admission seating beginning at 5 p.m. There will be door prizes and one college student will win a grand prize dinner with Phil and Kay Robertson at their home.
