Los Angeles, Calif. (January 14, 2013)- Coming off of the success of its cross-country arena tour, Celebrate What Matters, Women of Faith® will extend its live event experience to local communities nationwide with the launch of its Up Close tour. On Saturday, February 16, Celebrate What Matters: Up Close will kick off in Colorado Springs, Colo. offering attendees the opportunity to encounter life-changing truths from some of top Christian authors, music artists and Bible teachers.

Last year's One Day events confirmed a need for deeper biblical teachings and intimate worship. Up Close aims to help women of all stages of life come together for a one-of-a-kind experience that will send them home refreshed, renewed, and ready to face what lies ahead.

"We want attendees to have an up close experience with God and walk away with new-found confidence, encouragement, excitement and purpose," said Barry Walsh, vice president of creative for Live Event Management, Inc.

Women of Faith® events bring together thousands of women in the ultimate area-wide Bible study, connecting women from all walks of life in a deep and meaningful way. They aim to help women thrive in the face of the real, shared challenges they confront every day.

The 2013 events provide a much-needed opportunity to bond, connect and be inspired as a diverse array of musical artists, Bible teachers, and storytellers take the stage in a program specifically designed to offer renewed strength and hope. This year's lineup includes both veteran and debut guests. Best-selling authors Sheila Walsh, Angie Smith, and Patsy Clairmont, as well as Dove Award winning vocal trio Selah return. New platform speakers and talent include New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst (Unglued and Made To Crave), GRAMMY® nominee Matthew West, money relationship experts Scott & Bethany Palmer (The Money Couple) and well-known pastor Holly Wagner, among others.

"I am so excited about our Up Close events this year and cannot wait to meet attendees face-to-face," says author, speaker and singer Sheila Walsh. "Together we will dive into the word of God and find that Christ is the rock we stand secure on when everything else around us is shaking."

"Up Close is more than just a women's event," says Barry Walsh. "When women's lives are changed, so are their families, their communities, and their world. At this event, we aim to provide women with concrete ways to change their lives and we cannot wait to see the results that will come of it!"

Women of Faith® has reached nearly 5 million over the last 17 years and is currently the nation's largest live event organization for women. The 2013 Up Close tour will be held primarily at churches and will visit 10 cities from February through May (see tour dates and cities listed below).
