Gospel Choir Greetings,

Our plan in this ever changing season of Covid is to get back together as safely as possible, hopefully starting in early February. We would meet Monday nights at Grace Church in Stewartville from 6:45p to 9p. (We have not found a large enough space in Rochester yet that would allow us to meet.) The Worship Center is large enough to safely accommodate (distanced) up to 200 people. Since our largest Choir in the past 8 years has been 125, we feel good about the space we’ll have. We also know people are at various levels of comfort so we would ask that you wear a mask into the building and keep it on during rehearsal and conversations with friends.
There is no cost to be part of Gospel Choir. In the event we are able to hold a concert this spring we’d ask you to purchase a tshirt for the event ($10).
Past participation rules apply:
*Gospel Choir is open to students in 8th grade through HS Seniors. (We may invite College age kids to also join us)
*Come when you can, unless you are not feeling well!
*No Cost (unless we do a concert – Tshirt $10)
*Invite your friends
If you have any questions please email me at: [email protected]org or call our office at 507-288-4567. If you are interested in being pact of Gospel Choir please send me an email so we can include you in our contact list and would you please take a 30 second survey at the link below?
I look forward to hearing from you!

Teen Hope Ministries


A portion of our Teen Gospel Choir wanted to share the message of hope and encouragement found in the song “Lord I Need You”. Teen Hope Ministries does not own the rights of this song (written by Matt Maher, Christy Nockels, Daniel Carson, Jesse Reeves & Kristian Stanfill). This is the first video, of what we hope will be many.
