A chapel concert by award-winning singer/songwriter Amanda Falk will highlight Tabor College?s Campus Visit Days for prospective students and their parents Sunday and Monday, Feb.17 and 18.

Falk, recognized as one of the top Christian performing artists in North America, will perform at 1:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, in the chapel auditorium.

The event is free and the public is invited to attend.

?Amanda is a talented musician who uses her music to talk about her faith and journey with Christ,? said Kevin Johnson, director of spiritual formation and campus pastor at the college. ?She is currently touring through the Midwest and is able to stop at Tabor.?

Falk, who lives in Winnipeg, Man., has performed in more than 160 concerts, including the national Mennonite Brethren youth convention Anaheim ?07 held last spring at the Anaheim (Calif.) Hilton Hotel.

Her accolades include a pair of 2007 Shai Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year; a 2006 Juno Award for Best Contemporary Christian Album of the Year; a 2006 Covenant Award for Female Vocalist of the Year; two 2005 Shai Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year; and a 2005 Covenant Award for Female Vocalist of the Year.

The purpose of the twice-weekly student chapel program at Tabor is to support the mission of the college by developing environments and relationships that promote Christian spiritual formation, Johnson said.

?Amanda?s time in chapel will provide a great forum for the Tabor community to be encouraged but also challenged in their Christian journey,? he added.

The itinerary for Campus Visit Days includes a pizza party with current Tabor students, an academic fair with professors and an off-campus evening social for parents.

Students and parents will stay overnight on campus. In addition to attending the chapel concert on Monday, students will tour the campus and meet with coaches and professors.

Parents will receive information about financial aid and have lunch with Tabor College administrators.

In addition to Falk?s concert at Tabor, she will be ministering to teenage girls at Buhler and Parkview MB churches while in the area. She has been focusing her attention on the next generation of young women through the Beautiful Unique Girl (BUgirl) movement, which encourages teenage girls to look beyond the magazine covers and media frenzy to measure their value.

With a team of four, Falk shares her story and performs a concert ending the night with a time of group devotion.

According to her web site, thousands of girls have already been touched and the movement has just begun.
