Tennessee Fires Change Plans for It Is Written Partnership Event

It Is Written, a Seventh-day Adventist television ministry, said Wednesday it was able to relocate a “partnership weekend” event to Chattanooga, Tennessee, following a series of tragic wildfires in and around nearby Gatlinburg, where the program was to take place.

“As we kept track of the devastation being caused by the fires we realized we wouldn’t be able to meet in Gatlinburg this weekend,” John Bradshaw, speaker/director of It Is Written, said. “But God worked in some truly amazing ways and our event is going to go ahead just as we had planned, but in our home town of Chattanooga. We’re beyond thankful for what He has done. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the people of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. They’re still going through a real ordeal in the wake of what has occurred.”

The partnership weekend, which features updates on the global television ministry and associated outreach efforts, will be held at the Chattanooga Convention Center, while two adjacent hotels will provide lodging for out-of-town visitors. In fact, the ministry expects to be able to accommodate more guests with the new venue.
