Gospelprojekt-Ruhr e.V.

The organization Gospelprojekt-Ruhr e. V. provides children and adults with the opportunity to experience gospel music by singing together. The annual concerts organized by the project feature more than 300 performers of all ages who come together on stage to present the fruits of their intensive rehearsals. Year after year audiences are spellbound by the sheer professionalism of all those taking part. Their obvious enjoyment brings home the message of the gospel to all who hear it. The whole principle of the project is to create a cultural event not for but with the people who live in the region. The Gospelprojekt-Ruhr e. V. seeks, in particular, to bring together children and young people from all levels of society, regardless of their cultural background. Besides training and encouraging their musical skills, the project also communicates social and Christian values.

The organization that sponsors the gospel project in the Ruhr region was founded by Karl-Erivan W. Haub in 2007. He provides broad support for the organization and hopes to see the project become an established feature in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
