Celebrating 12 years of ministry, Gospel Explosion 2014 is slated for June 7 from noon until 7 p.m.at Mosby Park in Cleveland. The Christian family event is free and open to the public.
Gospel Explosion is an outreach ministry aimed at drawing the community closer to Christ through ministry, fellowship and action, said officials. Though structured like a carnival to attract a diverse group of people, the ultimate purpose is ministry.
Attendees should visit the registration booth upon arrival to receive an armband that will entitle them to a free hot dog and drink. After registration, visitors are free to roam the park and take part in all the activities offered. In addition to free food, there will be vendors onsite selling a variety of food including fish sandwiches, smoked turkey wings, BBQ and more. Additionally, there will be inflatable toys, games, prizes and more.
The stage will be set under a tent with space for lawn chairs. New this year, attendees will need to bring their own lawn chairs for seating. Coming back this year are the recording artist Eula Gipson, Johnson Family Singers, and Gerald Benton just to name a few. The “most original performance” winners of BICC’s “So You Think You Have Talent” talent show, Tinillik will be new to the stage this year. Other participants will be announced later.
Organizers are currently seeking additional gospel talents, volunteers and sponsors to help with Gospel Explosion 2014. For more information or to be involved, call RaSharon King at 987-3356 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
