A four-day world missions prayer conference has been scheduled to hold from Wednesday January 18 to 21 at the Bethel Church (Wonder City) AJah, Lagos.
The conference is being put together by the duo of Rev Eric Ighalo and Evangelist Edwin Ebeniro
Ebeniro told Church Times in a chat that the conference is being strategically planned to mobilise the church for the great harvest of souls ahead.
He said there is an urgent need to sensitize people to the need for missions because of the growing apathy across the world. “We urgently need to do something to bring to the remembrance of our people the need for missions. Our call is primarily to go to the world and make disciples.
“We were not called to build monuments and cathedrals. As much as I am not against cathedrals, I think the need has come for the church to wake up to its core mandate. That is what the conference is all about. It is about praying for more labourers, it is about stirring the hearts of people to be sensitive to lost souls It is about equipping the church for the end time harvest.”
Key speakers expected at the strategic prayer meeting and missions mobilisation are Bro Dotun Adeboye, Pastor Toyin Kehinde, and Pastor Lekan Amusan.
Ebeniro said the event would mark the beginning of a new dawn for missions. “We are hoping and praying that by the end of the conference, there will be a new awakening among the church. lives will be transformed and people will come to the knowledge of the truth about our core mandate. We have played too much. It is time to wake up.” he said
