The West Texas Chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America was started on February 6, 2004 by Sue Roseberry. There was a small group who assembled themselves together at that first meeting which was held at Macedonia Baptist Church for the purpose of organizing the choir and chapter.

Those ten charter members set the groundwork for a solid group of gospel music enthusiasts who desired to transcend denominational and cultural boundaries and pursue excellence through the medium of Gospel Music. At present choir participants represent 25 different churches and come from 5 cities in West Texas area (Midland, Odessa, Lubbock, Kermit and Big Spring.)

The West Texas Chapter was officially installed as a chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America on June 18, 2005.

Our Purpose:

Joining together as “one” to praise the one and only God!


To provide for the collaboration of gospel music singers and musicians in West Texas and the surrounding area. To offer structure and help for enhancing the music ministry at the local level. To encourage the efforts of those performing the music. To provide a link to a larger body that can provide training, instruction, networking and mentoring in the gospel music industry. To stir up the gifts of gospel artists in the area. To insure the longevity of the gospel music culture. To acquaint the rest of the country with the vast amount of talent in our area.

Our Logo:

The jewel with various hues to represent the numerous races, denominations, and unique musical ministry gifts that combined are a thing of beauty to behold.
