What is the experience all about?
We encourage and equip young women in their new or renewed commitment to stay pure until marriage and help fathers or mentors understand that they have an important role to play.
The Saturday evening event begins with complimentary valet parking and an opportunity for formal portraits; followed by dinner, a special guest speaker and the covenant ceremony. Finally culminating with plenty of time for fun with DJ dancing, party pics, and purity mementos, this is a night that neither father nor daughter will ever forget!
Did you know… The Ark-La-Tex Purity Ball is a 501c3 non-profit organization? All donations to the Ark-La-Tex Purity Ball are tax-deductible. We raise funds to provide Purity Ball event scholarships, to cover the costs associated with hosting the event, in addition to providing resources for parents to help their young women in their commitment to stay pure until marriage.
Who the Purity Ball for?
The Purity Ball is designed to equip and encourage young women 7 – 12th grade to stay pure until marriage. This event allows fathers an opportunity to pledge themselves to love and protect their daughters. It also helps young women to begin to realize the truth that they are infinitely valuable who are “worth waiting for”. This incredible event reaches to the very heart of young women, sharing the benefits of “abstinence until marriage” and encouraging purity in a sacred way that will be remembered forever.
What does it cost?
This year’s Ball has been underwritten by a donor but a donation of any amount is welcome to help us to underwrite future Balls!
What do I wear?
Young ladies wear evening formal wear. Fathers/Mentors are encouraged to wear a tux or formal military dress.
**Please no cutouts, cleavage or above the knee!
We want you to look like the priceless treasure you are!
What if I don’t have a father?
For those girls who have no father, we ask that she bring a mentor. Mentors could be a grandfather, step-dad, a family friend, an uncle or a pastor.
What if I have stumbled in my Purity?
Stumbling does not exclude you from experiencing joy and happiness, because there is forgiveness. Do not be defined by what you see as your “stumbling block”. You are valuable, and you are capable! We would love to celebrate with you in your Redeeming Purity!
