Walking into Sunday night’s gospel music event, which was held at the Main Exhibition Hall of the Pike County Fairgrounds, there were likely many people suffering from the “Elijah Syndrome,” according to Curryville Baptist Church minister Jerry Gamm.
Fast forward two hours later, Gamm said there was little chance that anyone leaving Sunday night’s event was suffering from “Elijah Syndrome.”
In an interview with the Bowling Green Times, Gamm recounted how the Biblical prophet Elijah, who in the Old Testament feared that he was the last man in Israel that was adhering to God’s commandments.
“Sometimes we get ourselves into our own little corners and we start to think that we are the only voice crying out for help and crying out for God,” Gamm said in his interview. “Tonight was a wonderful reminder that there are many voices crying out.”

An attendee at Sunday’s gospel music event raises his hand in worship while Angela Dameron Maier, pictured in background, sings a praise and worship song based on Leonard Cohen’s song entitled, “Hallelujah.”
More than 300 people attended the event, which was held at the Main Exhibition Hall of the Pike County Fairgrounds. During the event, multiple speakers and vocalists discussed the importance for Christians to come together as one body of faith.
