The brothers, known internationally for their gospel music, have gathered some of the best entertainers and musicians in the valley for the evening of music, worship and reflection.

Those slated to perform include Ron Retzer, J.D. Garrison, Jennifer Galownia, Bob Wolfe, Leslie Thermes, Doc Roe, Earl Tuttle, Lesa Thermes and Barbara Thermes.

The schedule includes the Rev. Ed Rudigar beginning with an invocation at 4:30 p.m., followed by Earl Tuttle, Doc Roe, Barbara and Lesa Thermes. Retzer will perform from 5 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., after which the Chrisagis Brothers and their team of singers, including Retzer, Garrison, Galownia, Bob Wolfe, Thermes and Roe, will spread the word through music and skits.

"This is a night you don't want to miss out on," said Brian Chrisagis. "We want all the churches to get behind it and bring glory back to God in Steubenville. It is a call to revival and a call to focus and put Christ where he belongs. As the Bible says in Matthew 12: 'In His Name the Nations Will Put Their Hope.'"

"This isn't a church event - it's a Christian event that all denominations and non-denominations should support," said Shawn Chrisagis. "If you love good gospel music you will love this event. Bring your family, friends and churches and come celebrate gospel homecoming with us. There will be food and soft drinks there as well."
