About the 19th Annual Gospel Music Festival that was held January, 2014

Hello and welcome to the 19th annual Rockport Gospel Music Festival. Our festival began back in 1994 as a gospel music concert, sponsored by “Rockport’s Gospel Force” police quartet. The Gospel Music Festival has continued to grow throughout the years much because of your continued support through your attendance, your prayers and your contributions. Without your consistent support the festival would never have grown to the three-day event that it has been the past few years.

We are extremely excited and blessed to welcome Don Piper to this year’s festival. He has mesmerized and inspired nearly three thousand audiences around the globe since the release of his New York Times best-selling book in 2004 titled 90 Minutes in Heaven, A True Story of Death and Life. Don has sold over 5 million copies of his books in 40 languages. This book is widely considered to be a landmark book that has led to a renaissance in the interest of Heaven.

Also please welcome back with us again this year The Nelons who have numerable awards and accolades including three GRAMMY Nominations, Six Gospel Music Association DOVE Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts, this family continues to product innovative music that embraces their traditional roots, while simultaneously reaching beyond various musical boundaries with an emphasis on introducing songs for the church. Today, the Nelons’ take all the elements you’ve come to expect from the group—unparalleled vocal excellence, a sound built on the interplay between a soaring soprano and Kelley’s emotional smooth alto with an intertwining tenor, and add the wonderful tight family harmony with an uncanny gift of communicating God’s love and you have a worship experience that you’ll not soon forget!

Our festival this year is dedicated to the memory of MARK GILLIAM, an original member of Rockport’s Gospel Force Police Quartet, and co-founder of the Rockport Gospel Music Festival. Mark, a former City of Rockport Police officer and former Sheriff of Aransas County was killed in an automobile accident on May 14, 2013.

Please pray for the continued success of this festival and make plans to be with us next year on the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th of January, 2015 for our 20th Annual Rockport Gospel Music Festival.


God Bless You and Happy New Year!!
