'Gospel Explosion' returns to Victoria after over 3-year hiatus

VICTORIA, Texas - It’s been nearly four years since Ricky Mumphord has hosted what he calls ‘Gospel Explosion’ and on Saturday, February 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. the Holy Spirit will return to the Crossroads, showcasing a stellar lineup of church choirs from all around the Crossroads.

“Gospel explosion, that’s what we call it. So we get a lot of local groups from Victoria, churches here in Victoria, churches outside of Victoria. We have a good ole’ time singing and praising God,” said Mumphord.
