May 21, 2021 | 7:00PM
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATE!
The New Hope Baptist Church announces a special Farewell concert featuring Gospel Super Star and Grammy Award winner, Le’Andria Johnson. The internationally known gospel artist will perform in celebration of the successful tenure and leadership of Rev. Rabon L Turner as the Senior Pastor of New Hope for 15 years. Pastor Turner and Family will be leaving Evansville to become the 1st Family of Grace Emmanuel Church in Flint, Michigan.
Famed Gospel Choir, Joe Leavell and 1Purpose and Master Violinist, Maestro Jay, will be the opening acts for Ms. Johnson. Both opening acts are out of Louisville, KY. This is a most appropriate way to celebrate the church and Pastor and the hope is that the entire community will come and support as well as say their goodbyes to the Turner Family.
