Lydia Award Celebration

An Evening Celebrating Transformation

It’s One of Our Favorite Nights of the Year!

Who doesn’t love an inspiring story of transformation? How about three or four such stories?!

PEER Servants sponsors the Lydia Award each year to recognize the micro-entrepreneurs who, like Lydia in Acts 16, are using their small businesses for significant family and community impact. Our Lydia Award Celebration is an evening where our volunteers tell the stories, often through very creative and compelling means, of the finalists for the Lydia Award. Their goal: to persuade you to vote for their Lydia Award finalist, which is announced at the end of the evening.

Add to the Celebration cuisine from the countries of the finalists and a great gathering of people like you who want to make a difference in our world, and we think it will be one of your favorite nights of the year as well! It’s a FREE evening – no charge for admission, no offering.

The 2021 Lydia Award Celebration is merging with our Annual Banquet to become our Annual Lydia Awards Banquet! Check back in July to get the latest on House and Virtual “Banquets” that will take place the last week of September and first week of October.
