Begun as an international people-to-people exchange, with gospel music (sung in English) as a common language, the Wisconsin Conference gospel music ministry has flourished for over a decade. The GOSPELLERS have hosted German gospel choirs in Wisconsin on several occasions, and have made three trips to Germany. The GOSPELLERS also sing for workshops and worship services throughout Wisconsin.
In 2016, the GOSPELLERS began a new partnership with Safe Haven UCC (Queens, NY) and the New York Conference of the United Church of Christ. Traveling to New York City in 2017 provided a rich opportunity to learn more about gospel music’s roots, and to sing with the New York Conference’s newly established gospel choir. The GOSPELLERS understand ourselves as a 21st century faith community that gathers monthly to celebrate God’s expansive love through music and fellowship—and to support one another’s faith journeys.
