Whitworth University will host its 18th annual Gospel Explosion on February 13 at 7:00 p.m. in the Seeley G. Mudd Chapel. The theme this year is “Still praising him after all these years.” The event is free and the public is welcome to attend.
“I started the Gospel Explosion event 18 years ago because of a student who wanted to bring the Whitworth and Spokane communities together through praise and worship,” says Stephaine Nobles-Beans, coordinator for ministry and multicultural affairs at Whitworth. “Since I was, and still am, a praise and worship leader in my church, I thought it was a great idea.”
During the event, Whitworth’s Exceptional Praise Gospel Choir will perform alongside choirs from local churches, some of which have performed at Whitworth previously. The Exceptional Praise Gospel Choir will lead the evening’s worship; other choirs taking part include those from Jesus Is the Answer Apostolic Church, Morning Star Baptist, and Holy Temple Church of God.
