That everyone in attendance would leave the arena at the end with a resolve to do more with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and their lives!”
“Transformation can only come by the renewing of minds (Romans 12:2), hence the presentations and every other activity. I trust God that every ministration on the night will carry God’s manifest power. No sound, no word or presentation would be void of impact; God is set and so are we to receive from Him an invasion!” he added.

Get ready for an explosive night, get ready to experience a night of a lifetime, get ready to be invaded, so that you also can invade.”
