NASHVILLE, TN - (November 29, 2011) - Not everyone will be home for the holidays and that's why multi-platinum selling trio, Point of Grace (Shelley Breen, Leigh Cappillino, Denise Jones) is partnering with American Bible Society on their Christmas tour, "Home for the Holidays" Tour presented by A Soldier's Hope. The tour which will honor and help raise support for American military personnel who are not able to spend the holidays with their loved ones. Select dates will include appearances by Dove Award winning group, Phillips, Craig and Dean and artist, Meredith Andrews. With the help of the American Bible Society, show attendants are invited to help equip military chaplains with Bibles through the ministry's A Soldier's Hope campaign. Point of Grace's Christmas CD, appropriately titled, Home For The Holidays, is available everywhere now.

"Some of America's bravest-soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardians, and marines-will be spending Christmas far from their families so we can spend ours safely at home," said Point of Grace's Denise Jones. "We're partnering with American Bible Society to bring hope and encouragement to America's military."

For 195 years and through nine wars, American Bible Society has provided Scripture to millions of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces. More recently, American Bible Society has helped provide more than 2.2 million scripture resources custom-tailored to meet the unique needs of military service personnel or veterans.

"It is a great honor to provide Bibles to those who give so much to protect our nation and our freedom," said Retired Col. Jim Puchy, American Bible Society. "I know firsthand of the incessant and unsettling pressures of military life and how only God's Word can help when faced with trauma, grief and painful experiences that are, unfortunately, a reality of military life."

Since forming at Ouachita Baptist University 20 years ago, the two-time GRAMMY® nominees have sold more than 7 million albums and earned 24 consecutive No. 1 singles (27 total including radio staples "Steady On", "The Great Divide" and "Circle of Friends"), a feat unmatched by any artist in any genre. They've won 13 Dove Awards, including 2011 awards for country recorded song of the year, country album of the year and Christmas album of the year for Home For The Holidays.
