Carson-Newman University presented Long Hollow Church Senior Pastor Robby Gallaty with the inaugural Ken Sparks Award during its Alumni and Friends Dinner November 16 at Brentwood Baptist Church.

“It is such a pleasure to honor Dr. Gallaty with this award,” said Carson-Newman President Charles A. Fowler. “His commitment to ‘making disciples who make disciples’ is having a tremendous impact for the Kingdom. His journey and his passion of serving the Lord are truly inspiring. Ken Sparks’ legacy prioritizes evangelism, discipleship, and Christ-centered excellence. Dr. Gallaty certainly embodies all of those.”
