An organization for Christian girls has reasons to celebrate in 2015.

American Heritage Girls, the Christian alternative to the left-leaning Girl Scouts, is holding its annual convention in June at Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana just north of Indianapolis. The organization turns 20 this year.

american heritage girls logoAHG executive director Patti Garibay says one convention speaker is author and speaker Dannah Gresh, who speaks to girls about chastity and modesty. 

Among other speakers is Jennifer Barrick, who survived a near-fatal automobile accident. She is speaking about faith and perseverance.

Garibay also tells OneNewsNow that the Christian organization is teaming up with Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child to gather gifts for children in impoverished countries.

AHG has an approximate membership of 40,000 girls and leaders after enjoying a surge in participation since 2010.
