Adeboye promises turnaround of lives at RCCG Congress
Millions of people from around the world will from Monday pour into the Redemption Camp of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) for this year’s Congress with the theme: “Glory Ahead.”
The six-day inter-church event starts on Monday, December 3 and ends on Saturday, December 8.
This year’s Congress is the 21st in the series, having started in 1998 in Lekki, with a massive attendance that nearly brought Lagos to a standstill.
Many people walked long distances to and fro the event because it was faster to do so than the use of cars and busses. Many more who couldn’t get to the venue resorted to the radio to get the message.
Since then, attendance has continued to surge, partly the reason the church had to build a new three-kilometre-by-three-kilometre auditorium called, The New Arena, to seat about six million people.
Speaking about this year’s Congress, the General Overseer, RCCG Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said: “I assure you in the name of the One Who is called the King of Glory and the Source of all that is truly glorious that your life will never be the same after this Congress. By the reason of the Congress, you shall move forward in Jesus Name.”
Pastor Adeboye will be leading dozens of other ministers of God from all over the world to handle the huge congregation.
The organisers have made efforts to ensure the safety and comfort of worshippers. Power and water supplies have significantly improved over the years.
Also, traffic flow within and out of the Camp has improved in recent years, due to the work of the mission’s logistics unit called “Team Nehemiah.”
Giving more insight into the programme, an official said: “The Congress is strictly a spiritual event with focus on God’s faithfulness and goodness manifested in the Redemption plan accomplished by Jesus on the Cross.
“There shall be morning, afternoon and evening sessions during the six-day programme. The programme shall kick off with an evening session expected to last from 6.00pm to about midnight.
“There shall be six evening sessions (Monday – Saturday), while the afternoon sessions run on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Morning sessions run from Wednesday to Saturday and feature talks and prayers, followed by personal ministrations, while the afternoon sessions are devoted to teaching and sharing of experiences by accomplished professionals and ministers of God in various areas of human endeavours, including marriage, business, ministry and healthy living.
“The evening events constitute the main plenary sessions with ministration of the word led by Pastor Adeboye, personal and intercessory prayers.”
