VAN WERT - Van Wert Calvary Evangelical Church, on Van Wert-Decatur Rd., will be hosting the Modest is Hottest event with national Christian recording artist, Jaimie Jamgochian, on Saturday, Sept. 14, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

"This event is to help women feel encouraged in the right way," said Event Co-Chair Tafi Stober. "Today's culture revolves highly around what people see, but we want local women to realize that value goes much deeper than the visual image. Modest is Hottest is meant to have an impact of real value."

Modest is Hottest is an all-girls event for women of all ages from tweens to moms. The main theme of this event is to help women celebrate and discover a beauty and worth that is not defined by this world, but designed by their Maker. Jamgochian will be leading this discussion-based conference that will also include praise and worship.

"This will be a high energy event with a positive environment," noted Stober. "The concept of the night will be, 'Who am I?' and will discuss current issues faced by today's women." Calvary Evangelical Church hopes this event will be one that will change both hearts and lives.

Doors to the event will open at 5:30 p.m. Girl-related goodies will be on display, and a book-signing opportunity with guest author, Stacey Miller, from Columbus, OH, will also be available. Light snacks and sweet treats will be served while guests meet unique artists and vendors from around the region as well as socialize with other members of their community.

A concert jam will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will feature Jamgochian. This concert will be no ordinary event and will include a fashion show and key talking points that get to the heart of the issue of women's image. Teen regional recording artist, Hannah Beck, will join Jamgochian on stage and share her unique sound and message. Jennifer Keat-Beck of WTLW 44 will also be adding her sparkle as host of the evening's concert event.

Conference discussion will also focus on the variety of influences within today's culture that create false values in young girls and women. Modest is Hottest has toured around the nation and is now expected to leave its lasting mark on the hearts of Northwest Ohio. Calvary Evangelical Church is located at 10686 Van Wert-Decatur Rd.

Tickets are $10 and available at Calvary Evangelical Church or by calling (419) 238-9426. Tickets can also be found at The Bridge Bookstore, Chic Innovations, Slusher's Jewelry, and NEXT Salon on Main St.
