Celebrate the birth of our Savior with your FBA family and friends during our seventh annual First Family Christmas. All performances will be hosted by Joy Gardner, who has been delighting audiences all over the world for more than four decades. During the 1970s Joy received a Dove Award for Best Female Vocalist. In the 80s she worked with top country artists such as Crystal Gayle, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, The Judds, John Anderson and Dolly Parton. Joy returned to her gospel roots when she began travelling with the Bill Gaither Trio in the late 1980s and became a featured artist on the Gaither Homecoming series of chart-topping videos, recordings and television specials. In addition to her rich knowledge of music and broad range of experience, Joy has a heart for people and a deep-rooted faith in Christ, which she loves celebrating through music.

First Family Christmas is a multifaceted music and media extravaganza that will feature drama, comedy, special effects and surprises for the entire family! The evening's lineup includes spectacular music from our 250-voice Atlanta Worship Choir and Orchestra, as well as appearances by the Student PrayZ Choir, and the 4th and 5th grade children's choir. From high-energy contemporary, to traditional sacred selections, you'll hear a variety of music that is sure to put you in the Christmas spirit.

This year we are thrilled to introduce 14-year-old Colton Burpo, whose heaven experience at age 4 inspired the New York Times best-seller, "Heaven Is for Real." Come and hear as he recounts meeting family members in heaven and Jesus Himself! Additionally, hear the story of Katie Williams from Pittsburgh, PA. At only age 11, through a series of troubling circumstances, Katie's life turned toward a path of destruction and hopelessness before a transforming miracle radically changed everything! Finally witness the awesome story of Bonnie Gilliland, a three-time cancer survivor given no hope for recovery by doctors and specialists - until The Great Physician interceded!
