History of the Hope Festival
HOPE Festival was started by, then 20 year old, Minister Michael A. Turnbull to help youth throughout the world experience the Hope found in a relationship with Jesus. Although hosted by CGBBC, this is not an exclusive church event, but a community event in which all persons near and far can attend and be blessed and brought closer to Christ!
This event goes far beyond the island of Tortola. Although the event is local, bringing international ministers such as Rev. Claude O. Cline, Rev. Tony Lee, Rev. Bill Lee and other Life changing speakers to share the Gospel, it helps to extend the message of Jesus far beyond the Tortolian shores. It allows for a cultural exchange of experiences, talents and gifts which will only leave HOPE Festival 2011’s participants (You) blessed by the tremendous gifts.
Last year’s Festival was no less than excellent! Many lives were changed through the week of meetings, worship services and concerts. In the 6th Annual HOPE Festival, it is the time to go to the next level! Previous guest artists include Tye Tribbett & GA, Byron Cage & Junior Tucker, James Fortune, Pepper Ranks, Jadee, Emrand Henry, and Damita Haddon. This year’s featured artist is Detrick Haddon.
