Daniel Olawande hosts 5000 christian professionals at Youth Aflame Conference 2023
No fewer than 5,000 participants, including top Christian business and financial experts, converged at this year’s edition of the Youth Aflame Conference (YAC), hosted by Pastor Daniel Olawande.
However, for the third consecutive year running, the Youth Aflame Conference (YAC), has seen notable personalities like Pastor Daniel Olawande, Rev. Sam Adeyemi, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili and others speak at this year’s annual conference as the programme continues to impact more kingdom keepers.
The programme continues to pursue its aims in empowering participants to dominate their sphere of influence and take centre stage of global relevance with the 17th Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted
According to the organisers, the event with the theme, ‘The King’s Envoys’, which held July 22nd, 2023, at the Eko Hotel Convention Arena, Lagos, saw participants receiving practical expository knowledge and impartation to succeed.
The 2023 conference witnessed the sharpening and grooming of over 5,000 Christian professionals, both in person and virtually, to become believers with great competence backed up with consecration.
The conference, hosted by the Convener, Pastor Daniel Olawande, laid emphasis on how every believer can infiltrate systems, merging competence with consecration to take over the world for God. He described seven culture-shaping areas of influence over each society—media, government, education, economy, family, religion, and celebration (arts and entertainment)—that are the keys to taking a nation for the kingdom of God.
He said: “The cycle of revival is only complete when it leads to societal transformation.”
