The Avivar Voice Challenge (AVC) organized by Gateway International Church is a gospel singing talent hunt that aims to discover and empower new stars in the gospel music industry. This has been running since 2017 and has consistently awarded prizes to winners over the years. The grand prize for the winner of this year's edition is N1, 000,000.00 and a plot of land in Port Harcourt, while the 1st and 2nd runners-up will receive consolation prizes. The competition provides a platform for talented gospel singers to showcase their skills and gain recognition in the industry.
The brand 'AVIVAR' can hardly be regarded as 'new' to the ears of Port Harcourt residents and worshipers all over the world. It ignites excitement, faith and anticipation every time it is mentioned. For the past six years, AVIVAR, has served as an altar of worship and gateway to God encounters for Christians and non-Christians alike.
AVIVAR - The Extravagant Love Concert has undoubtly created a culture of putting aside political ties, religious differences and tribal diversities in exchange for a few hours of uninterrupted praise and worship. The concert was held for the first time in May 2017 at the Rivers State University (RSU) Convocation Arena with an attendance of over 15,000 people. The legacy of love, unity and unbridled expression of faith as represented by AVIVAR - The Extravagant Love Concert cannot be denied even in years to come.
