The event is being hosted by Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX), a national non-profit organization that advocates for former homosexuals and their families.
The songs of Dennis Jernigan, such as "You Are My All in All," "Nobody Fills My Heart Like Jesus," "Thank You," "We Will Worship the Lamb of Glory," as well as hundreds of others, are sung all over the world.
