Chapel-Poor Bishop Hooper-The Golgatha Experince

Davis Administration Building, Alumni Auditorium

community Events

Weaving a patchwork of melodies atop an upright bass and a guitar, Poor Bishop Hooper began as a duo. As their love for one another and for the Lord increased, they were called to further steward their gifts for God’s glory, and in increasingly unique ways. Though they still often perform simple tunes in simple places, a vibrant musical ministry has developed around them. It ranges from full band, heavy mood moments like that in the Golgotha Experience, to string and vocal laden scores like that in Firstborn. They’ve performed for thousands around the country, in the largest of concert halls to the smallest of living rooms. They’ve been commissioned to write music by distinguished art museums, underground ministries, and independent artists. Their hearts for the Creator and the endless and bountiful inspiration he provides are ever growing. In turn, their creative projects follow his leading.
