by Dr. Tracy Scott


The ultimate responsibility for a marriage belongs to the husband and wife, but the high incidence of divorce within the Christian community challenges the idea that churches provide truly practical and life-changing support for marriages." Barea Research Group

We are excited to bring together a wonderful evening of gospel jazz featuring some of the top artists in the industry, dynamic performances and jazz lovers from around the community and beyond.


This year's lineup features world-renowned jazz saxophonist Greg Vail, the hypnotic and soulful voice of Robin Alexis, with a special appearance by Tanya Egler and the Steven Lambert Quintet.

Robin has performed with artists such as Bill Withers, Joe Sample, Frankie Beverly & Maze, the late Joe Williams, Kevin Turner, Michael Manson and Vicki Yohe.


In 2012, she released her gospel jazz CD debut entitled "Still At Last" which is generating outstanding reviews.











Greg Vail - 7:15 pm

Domestic Violence: The Problem We Refuse to Face 

Domestic ViolenceThis course begins on March 2,  2013.    
Domestic Violence: The Problem We Refuse to Face

All classes are taught by Dr. Scott  in an informative environment, providing flexibility for participants while creating a collaborative and enriching learning experience. 
Intended Audience:
This course is intended for a broad audience including Christian counselors, healthcare professionals, Pastors, pastoral counselors and lay church leaders or members who are involved in or desire to help those who are most in need.
About this course: 
Domestic Violence: The Problem We Refuse to Face


"Tragically, studies reveal that spousal abuse is just as common within the evangelical churches as anywhere else. This means that about twenty-five percent of Christian homes witness abuse of some kind."  Religion Today (2009)


"I remember one church leader's wife who shared her story, once we had developed a trust relationship. Early in their marriage when she was pregnant, her husband became enraged and hit her so hard she was knocked across the room. He never hit her again, but all he needed to do was raise his voice or give that look to have her appease him and give in to his demands, peace at any price." 


It's sad but true, that for many people in today's world and for many churches, the focus on helping those who are living in sin is gradually eroding. When it comes to domestic violence (sin), many people and church leaders often ignore the value of each human life and instead are single-minded on "Wives be subject to your own husbands." (Ephesians 5:22) and not on "Husbands love your wives" (Ephesians 5:25).


Did you know?
A little known secret is that African-Americans, especially women are victims of domestic violence at higher rates than Caucasians or other ethnic groups.


Join us for this five-week series as we discuss:

  • defining domestic violence and its common dynamics
  • why does abuse happen
  • how the church promotes abuse
  • forgiveness and submission as they relate to domestic violence
  • overcoming obstacles church leaders and others face when helping domestic violent relationships
  • what should i do when domestic violence is happening in my relationship
  • what women wish their pastors would believe about domestic violence
  • how can abusers who are willing to change be helped
  • additional topics to be discussed

When: March 2-March 30, 2013

Time: Saturdays from 8:00am-9:30am

Location: 213 S. Wheaton Ave, Wheaton, IL 60187

Cost: $100


Light refreshments will be served during each class
