GosFes 2008 will seek to build on the success of the event held last year. Along from the great line up of artists, there will also be stalls selling food, drink and other goods, the distribution of information plus various activities for the young children. “GosFes” expect between 3,000-5,000 people to be present at GosFes 2008 and the audience will comprise the following: • Church leaders • Black Church members, of Caribbean and African heritage • Members of the local community • Gospel music fans (young people aged between 16-30) • Individuals interested in spirituality • Members of the general public • Young children under 12 5
  6. 6. AUDIENCE PROFILE At least 80% of people who attend GosFes 2008 will come from the black community. A large number of these will be from the black Christian community, considered the most prosperous and successful sector within Britain’s African and Caribbean population. It is estimated between 300,000—500,000 of Britain’s African Caribbean community regularly attend church and there are some 3,000 black congregations dotted throughout the UK (many of which are in London). The vast Majority of Britain’s black middle class have a church background and it has been estimated that 70% of people who attend black led churches are in the ABC1 socio-economic group. It’s also been noted that the majority of black Christians are: Male and Females aged between 20-45 years Aims The key aim of GosFes is to take the church out into the community and provide an opportunity for the church to interface with the wider community. GosFes 2008 will be a safe and secure event bringing together residents, local congregations, organisations and businesses to celebrate life and the things that we have in common. GosFes 2008 also seeks to contribute to the quality and diversity of community life and to challenge some of the negative stereotypes that currently exist about the area. We expect GosFes 2008 to event attracts people of all ages and races, although most of them come from the black community. It will give the public an opportunity to chill, relax, socialise in a family environment, hear great music, plus it provides numerous activities for children. 6
  7. 7.

Activities and programmes are delivered through the following means: • Sports and health development • Media and publicity engagement • Arts and Music inclusion • Education and training • Youth council / forum. Mentoring and coaching One of YD’s most current projects is ‘Life’ a music video produced by Ben Robinson of Isis Media. This Music video showcases the creative musical talents of young people in deprived areas through lyrics that relate to real life issues that affect them. Music is one of the key methods Young Disciples uses to engage disaffected young people. Part of the Volunteer Films project. LIFE: How young people perceive life, how it is living in the inner city, the peer pressure and issues of their community and how they view life. ‘Don’t write us off because we come from the inner city we have aspirations and dreams too.’ For more info: Contact Marc Edwards C.E.O.

  8. 8. The STORY SO FAR…………..2001 - God called Nadine Lee to start a new vocal group that would touch Christians and non-Christians alike. 2002 - The vocal sound developed, news spread & Ekklesia, which means ' The Called Out', started writing their own material. 2003 - Ekklesia releases a four track EP featuring the most significant faces of UK Urban Gospel. With a track written by MOBO & UMA, UK Gospel Pioneer Isaiah- Raymond Dyer of Raymond and Co, the unique sounds of leading Hip hop artist 'Practical Wisdom' of Green Jade and the much sort after guitar flavour that only Michael 'The Prophet' Brown could add, Good News became one of the strongest musical offerings of 2003. The release generates a UK Gospel media hype, which in turn encourages a much requested promo tour of the EP. August 2003 - Ekklesia enter the GMTV/Integrity/Voice Gospel Challenge, winning the London heat and awesome comments from judges Kanya King & Mica Paris. 2004 - Marriages, babies & one member (Shaneeka) leaving -Yes a break impended.

Nehemiah UCHA has close links with GosFes, the annual music festival designed to use gospel music as a tool to bring members of the community, different faiths and backgrounds together under one banner, to celebrate diversity and tolerance. But GosFes is much more than a music festival. The key aim of GosFes Is to take the church out into the community and provide an opportunity for the church to interface with the wider community. GosFes will be a safe and secure event bringing together residents, local congregations, organisations and businesses to celebrate life and the things that we have in common. GosFes also seeks to contribute to the quality and diversity of community life and to challenge some of the negative stereotypes that currently exist about the area.

  19. 19. Only God can get the credit for all that has taken place in the extraordinary life of Junior Tucker. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, he began singing at the age of 5.At age 7 he became a household name in his country performing his first #1 song “Happy” and also began travelling internationally. Without a shadow of doubt everyone knew being on stage was what he was born to do. With tremendous success, he navigated his way through three international recording contracts which have literally taken him across the world. He has toured throughout the United States, UK, Japan, Mexico and the Caribbean. at 12 years he was signed to Island Records and at 14 he had a recording contract with Geffen Records USA. At 23 he signed to Virgin Records UK. 1991 Junior was released from Virgin and returned to his roots to pursue a career in Jamaican Dancehall Music. Dancehall brought its accolades, number one songs, singer of the year titles and a high profile lifestyle. As time progressed his life became far from “Happy”. Despite so called fortune and fame, behind the scenes his life was in pieces, spent chasing the next hit song to stay on top and fill the void in his life. The death of his father and the birth of his first child; lead to a period of searching for answers to a deeper meaning to life. He investigated various religions but still no answers. He penned songs like “I pray” and “Praise His Name”, having no true knowledge of the God he was singing about. Bombarded by religion, a distorted childhood and being plagued by nightmares, he cried out one night “God if you are real, allow me to sleep?” God answered, he slept as never before. He woke up completely delivered, knowing that he was a Christian. He publicly confessed Jesus at his Lord and Savior that week at a gospel concert in Kingston and soon after was baptized. t has been 9 years and he has never returned his secular career. He states, “There is nothing to go back to”. Coming into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ has brought clarity to his once hazed purpose and destiny. To his life God has given direction, and to his gift God has given purpose. Junior, his wife Trudy and there 3 girls, Chyna, Zoe and Paige now reside in Clewiston, Florida. For the past 5 years he has submitted his life to his pastors, Pastors Chuck and Karen Pelham and his bishops, Bishops Tony and Kathy Miller, whom God has used to mold and shape first the man and then his ministry. 19
  20. 20. Through Junior Tucker Ministries, Junior not only sings but preaches the Gospel and conducts praise and worship workshops. God has taken him back to many of the nations where he performed as a secular artiste to now win souls for the Kingdom. God has even given him new territories to take the gospel and to set the captives free. His fourth Reggae Gospel Album titled “Victory – Worship from the Islands II” is definitely a reflection of his growth and maturity in Christ. Not only are there great foot stomping beats but also powerful praise and worship songs designed to usher in the presence of the Lord. To God Be the Glory! When the Lord led Rico to form Shekinah Ministries Sound System in 1996 it was seen as very controversial because many Christians believed Reggae music had no place in the church and neither did a sound system playing with 18 inch speakers. Some Pastors told members of their congregation not to attend Shekinah Outreaches for fear of being corrupted. But just as Jesus did not come for the righteous, Shekinah was not built for the Church! There were no qualms in going against the grain and breaking through barriers as far as the church was concerned. After organizing a series of free outreaches in the city of Birmingham U.K., It soon became clear that Shekinah was tapping into something unique with regards to spreading the gospel. The fruits of this were many accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Presently the Sound System consists of four key members, Spanna (The Tool in God's Hand, Who is also a recording artist; Miller the Selecta; Brother Keith (The Poet) and Singing D, the singer who has been likened to the late Garnett Silk. The Shekinah Sound System has played alongside top Gospel Reggae artists like Stitchie, Junior Tucker, Chevelle Franklyn and Judy Mowatt to name a few... They have also been privileged to link up with top secular sound systems like Stone Love from Jam Down and Luv Injection from the UK. No matter what the occasion, Shekinah always seeks to promote the Love of Jesus Christ and have been truly blessed to have been the ones chosen to pioneer a move of Christian Sound Systems that gives God all the Glory while making a difference. Shekinah Ministries is a group of Christians who regard Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Our aim is promote Jesus Christ through contemporary Christian music, which we believe to be a powerful medium reaching out to lost souls. 20
