KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Former Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the Phil Waldrep Ministries annual Celebrators Conference in Pigeon Forge later this fall.

Pence will be joined by his wife Karen Pence during the conference being held Oct. 11-14 at the LeConte Center. The Pences will participate in Wednesday night’s program.  

“Wednesday night will be a time to pray for our country, honor our veterans and celebrate our nation,” conference founder Phil Waldrep said.

This year’s event will also include lectures from David Jeremiah and Waldrep, a performance by comedian Dennis Swanberg and times of worship with musical guests Gordon Mote, The Collingsworth Family, Charles Billingsley and the Gaither Vocal Band.

The conference has brought a number of prominent leaders to Sevier County, including former President George W. Bush. Bush has attended the conference four times, the latest was in 2018.

Other previous guests include Mike Huckabee, Tim Tebow, Max Lucado and Mark Lowry.

“It’s always an honor to share our stage with one of our nation’s leaders,” Waldrep said. “I am looking forward to interviewing the Pences about their faith, family and love for our country.” 

According to Waldrep Ministries the Celebrators Conference is for “adults to experience spiritual fulfillment, Bible teaching, fellowship and fun.”
