Greater Mountain Rest Church held their second rehearsal Thursday night in preparation for a major gospel music festival. The festival, titled The Gathering, will take place May 17th at Milner Stadium in Gulfport. The festival will bring together all Christian churches in the community for a day of food, music, and worship. Greater Mountain Rest has put together a choir of all ages to be one of many performances that day.

Derek Addison, minister at Greater Mountain Rest Church, says, “We have had this event before at Milner Stadium. This is our second time doing it and we're expecting a great turnout. We're expecting many people to come, but most of all we're expecting souls to be saved and expecting the young people to come out and realize that there is a need for them to be in the house of the Lord.” Addison says they are expecting at least 8,000 people to attend throughout the day. The event starts in the morning at 10:00 and runs until 4:00 p.m.
