THIS YEARS THEME:
Hope Festival is designed to inspire, ignite and emancipate, especially, the youth and young adults of our territory through the realization of their gifts and eschatological hope given in the personhood and ministry of Jesus Christ. Love, encapsulates the greatest command that’s given by God; to love your neighbor as yourself. It has been the theme of every popular song from Bob Marley’s “One Love” to Kirk Franklin song titled simply “Love”.
We have done some crazy things in the name of love. Many of us have been hurt by ‘love.’ Some of us swear by love, while others say it doesn’t exist. Some of us are searching for love, while others have simply given up on love.
This year’s Hope Festival, “Love: The Real Thing” offers you real love, from the best Lover and Friend you will ever know. For God so Loved the World (The Good, Bad, Struggling, Poor, Rich, Sinner and Saint) that God sent His Son for you. This is the Love that we are offering, a Love that will accept you in spite of your faults, failures and shortcomings. So come to Hope Festival 2010, “Love: the Real Thing” to Experience Real Love.
HISTORY & PURPOSE
HOPE Festival was divinely designed to enkindle, encourage and liberate the island of Tortola. 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! It was started by the ten 21 year old Minister Michael A. Turnbull, to inspire the youths and young adults in the Virgin Islands
This event goes far beyond just the island of Tortola, for although the event is local, bringing international ministers, such as Co-Pastor Owens, to share the Gospel 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 2010’s participants more blessed by tremendous gifts and talents of everyone involved.
Last year’s Festival was no less than excellent, and for the first time we were featured throughout the Caribbean on Tempo! Many lives were changed through the week of meetings, worship services and concert. In the 5th Annual HOPE Festival, it is the time to go to the next level! Previous Guest Artist for our Victory Concert include Tye Tribbett & GA, Byron Cage, Damitta Haddon & Junior Tucker.
