News Release

The Ozinga Chapel had the feel of a Southern tent revival during Gospel Fest Saturday evening, March 5. Singing groups from local high schools and communities joined Trinity's gospel choir to deliver a collection of songs that inspired, uplifted, and energized the audience of more than 200 people.

The Storehouse Choir, Rebirth of Liberty Choir - which came from Thornridge High School - and Thornwood High School's gospel choir took the stage after Trinity's choir opened the concert. The groups sang classic and current gospel favorites such as "The Lord Is Blessing Me," "We Worship You," and "Can't Stop Praising His Name."

Junior Jarita Steward (Country Club Hills, Illinois), serving as the worship leader, exhorted the audience throughout the evening to clap their hands, stomp their feet, and sing along to express their praise for God. Billy Evans, a senior from South Holland, Illinois, who is also a Pentecostal minister, gave a short message encouraging the audience to persevere through tough times.

Claudette Anderson '04 and her mother, Patricia, offered a praise dance, as did Glorious Praise, a group of teen-aged girls whom Rosetta Polk-Pugh '04 brought and introduced to the College.
