Gospel Heritage Presents: The International Worship Summit 2015 in Orlando, FL


Praise & Worship in the Black Church has “shifted” over the last 15 years! Songs are different, choirs have become scarce, praise team presentations are more personal;  and that uniqueness has impacted millions in a positive, yet potentially “puzzling” way. Pastors have embraced this shift, but there is a pressing need for more education on how to achieve excellence in the “new” worship space/culture without losing or compromising our rich legacy and heritage.

Gospel Heritage understands and meets the need to educate and nurture regarding the new, contemporary movement of worship without sacrificing the “oil” of the anointing!

Gospel Heritage’s founder, Dr. Teresa Hairston, has been a pioneering force in the Gospel idiom—both ministry and music. In 1989, she founded Gospel Today Magazine which she published for 23 years; it grew from a fledgling 4-page newsletter to become the #1 Christian Lifestyle Publication, the most widely distributed periodical of its type. In 1994, Hairston launched the Gospel Heritage Foundation to “Preserve the Gospel Legacy and Perpetuate the Gospel Heritage”. In 2015, she says the “vision” for GHF has been updated! “Today, our vision includes ‘Transforming Nations & Generations through Worship!’ ” Hairston says.  “I see the shifting ‘culture’ in our churches and we’ve got to deal with it! I love the ‘old school’ Gospel, but the ‘new school’ brings a lot of great energy and substance. We can bring both together without compromising the integrity of either!”

Unlike many of today’s popular worship conferences, Gospel Heritage serves the church and it’s leaders who desire a collaboration of the old and new. Gospel Heritage uniquely and specifically crosses denominations, cultures, and age groups! Pastors attend the conference and get information and inspiration; Musicians and Worship Leaders come and get educated and refreshed; Artists come and get connected!
