Nearly 60 independent Baptist churches in North and South Carolina are partnering with Virginia-based evangelist Byron Foxx to present the Carolinas God Bless America Crusade. This free, family-oriented event opened Wednesday night and continues Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m. at Bojangles’ Coliseum.

Kicking off on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, Wednesday night's program saluted first responders. The crusade will honor educators on Thursday night, and the U.S. military on Friday night.

Organizers say volunteers have knocked on 300,000 doors in and around Charlotte in the last few weeks to spread the word about the crusade.
