JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

One of the south’s leading Duck Commanders is headed to Region 8 to share his faith and support women trying to get their lives on track.

An Evening with Phil Robertson is set for April 8 at the Arkansas State University Convocation Center in Jonesboro at 5:30 p.m.

The event is sponsored by John 3:17 Ministry which is a homeless/recovery center for women in Jackson County. 

Robertson appeared on the A&E show "Duck Dynasty" and will speak on faith, family, and ducks.

Katie McNaire, John 3:17 staff member, and Jim Woodell, John 3:17 director, appeared on Region 8 News Midday Tuesday to discuss the event.

“Proceeding that we will have graduates from John 3:17 and John 3:16 singing and doing some music,” McNaire said.

Proceeds from ticket sales go to keeping the doors of John 3:17 open.

“John 3:17 has been in existence for just over four years,” Woodell said. “We’ve got 23 ladies there that are recovering from various addictions, alcohol, drugs, or other things.”

Woodell said it’s a yearlong program that is no charge to the women.

Along with Phil Robertson, Woodell said Mrs. Kay from "Duck Dynasty" is supposed to attend as well.
