The purpose of the Promise Banquet is to raise funds for tuition assistance and other programs while informing the community about the outstanding Christian education at True Light Christian School. For several years we have enjoyed a delicious meal, provided a glimpse of what the school has to offer, and concluded the evening with a guest speaker. Reservations are required through the school office.

Twin brothers, David and Jason Benham, are former professional baseball players, nationally acclaimed entrepreneurs, and bestselling authors. Their rise to success earned them a reality show with HGTV that was set to air in the fall of 2014—yet the show was abruptly cancelled because of their commitment to Biblical values. The brothers continue to stand for what they believe and travel the country, encouraging others to do the same. David and Jason have a combined 9 children and live on the same street in Charlotte, NC.
