AGAPE of Central Alabama is proud to announce the 3rd Annual Connecting Hearts event with special guests Katherine and Jay Wolf. In April 2008, 26-year- old Katherine suffered a massive brain stem stroke. Not expected to live or recover, she instead relearned to eat, speak and walk. In spite of double vision, deafness, facial paralysis and diminished fine motor skills, she thrives as a wife and mom. Now she and Jay, a Montgomery native, celebrate the beauty of life and parenthood as well as the pain, and share their story through the full-time ministry of Hope Heals.
The Connecting Hearts event will take place on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at the Alley Station Warehouse in downtown Montgomery, the main event starts at 7 p.m., preceded by a VIP meet and greet from 6 until 6:30 p.m. and a book signing for all guests from 6:30 until 7 p.m.
Your support of this event will impact children and teens, throughout Central Alabama. Agape of Central Alabama is a ministry that helps children by connecting hearts through adoption and foster care. There are so many children in our area that need a loving home, and Agape sets out to match children with permanent homes with nurturing Christian families.

Previous Connecting Hearts have included special guests Michael Oher and Jay & Angie Jacobs.
- Michael Oher, NFL football player, has overcome challenges from homelessness, foster care, and adoption, which are similar to what children Agape of Central Alabama serve also face. Due to his dynamic story, he has been an inspiration to so many. Agape’s inaugural Connecting Hearts event was a HUGE success with more than 1200 tickets sold. Michael Oher’s message of challenge and perseverance were a true inspiration to every person who attended. Agape is still receiving notes from some of the children and parents saying what a difference Michael’s words have made in their life
- Jay Jacobs is the Athletic Director at Auburn University. Jay and Angie have three daughters, Haley, Meagan and Jayne. They have been a foster family in recent years, advocating for foster children, adoption and ending child hunger. They were a delight to hear speak as they shared their heart for children and families in our own communities.
