The Minnesota Gospel Opry continues to celebrate it's 10th year with a powerful show Saturday, January 15, 2023 at Crossroads Church in Lakeville.

The church is located at 17671 Glacier Way.  I drove there from my house a couple months ago and it took about 24 minutes on a Saturday.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m.  The music begins at 5:00 p.m. with the Minnesota Gospel Opry Band and Larissa Lundstrom, Nashville recording artist opening the show.

Habedank has a powerful ministry of breaking addiction to share along with some of the most inspirational Southern Gospel music ever performed.

Leon and Ronda Lundstrom are leading the Minnesota Gospel Opry that got it's start as the Minnesota Country Gospel Opry a decade ago.

Leon shared his story about it's origins on KDHL Thursday, July 13, 2023.

A number of musician friends got together for "jam sessions" of Gospel music that became very popular in the Twin Cities.

Eventually about 50 people would attend these sessions which led to the idea of starting the Gospel Opry in Minnesota.

The rest as they say is history.

Habedank is a Painesville, Ohio native.  His Bio on his website states.

Christian music artist Joseph Habedank is a two-time GRAMMY® nominated, three-time GMA Dove Award winning, and five-time fan-voted Soloist of the Year. Joseph has a powerful testimony of recovery from drug addiction that has been featured on's Spirited Debate, TBN’s Praise the Lord, and in such publications as Billboard Magazine, CCM Magazine, and Glenn Beck’s The Blaze.
