Gospel and Fellowship Conferences Come to Truman, Fill Campus With Weekend of Music

The campus of Truman State University will be filled with the sounds of some of the finest gospel music from the State of Missouri in November, as the Missouri Statewide Gospel Conference comes to Truman, Nov. 10-12.

Sponsored by Truman’s Unique Ensemble gospel choir, the event is the annual conference of the Missouri Statewide Fellowship of College and University Gospel Choirs. In effect since 1988, Missouri Statewide assembles a number of forerunners in the gospel music industry to participate in the conference.

Colleges and universities from Missouri, and surrounding states, will be at Truman to participate in events such as workshops, breakout sessions, a Sunday morning service, an open mic night, a concert and social events.

The conference will culminate with the Gospel Extravaganza concert at 3 p.m. Nov. 12 in Baldwin Auditorium. The performance will feature a 200-voice mass choir, featuring students from colleges and universities throughout Missouri, as well as a step team and spoken word poetry. The Gospel Extravaganza is free and open to the public.

The Missouri Statewide Fellowship Conference, in conjunction with the Missouri Statewide Gospel Conference, will also take place on Truman’s campus, Nov. 10-12. Hosted by Unique Ensemble, participation in the conference costs $40, and includes choir, praise dance and faith building workshops, as well as a T-shirt and meals.
