64th Annual Convention: RCCG announces measures for hitch-free programme
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has announced strict measures for a hitch-free 64th annual convention of the church, which is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 1, and run till Sunday, August 7. The convention, with the theme AMEN’ which literally means so shall it be, will be preceded by a four-day ministers’ conference which starts on Thursday.
In his welcome address, the General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, said: “Amen as we all know is one of the names of our Lord Jesus Christ, you are, therefore, coming into this convention to encounter the AMEN.”
A statement signed by Head, RCCG Media & Public Relations Department, Pastor Segun Adegbiji, said members, delegates and non-members were expected from about 190 countries where RCCG had presence. According to him, the word from Pastor Adeboye and other ministers would be robust, while music would be rich, as children, youth and adults would have roles to play. He then urged participants to take advantage of the numerous arrangements put in place to help them have a wonderful camp experience and a memorable time in the Lord’s presence.
Adegbiji said RCCG buses in the church’s colours would be at the headquarters of all RCCG Provinces in Lagos and South West Regions of Nigeria from yesterday to convey interested persons to the Redemption camp.
He added that Team Nehemiah had arranged LAG buses for shuttle services from the current Arena to the New 3×3 kilometer auditorium at Shimawa. On parking arrangements within the camp ground, Pastor Adegbiji explained that Car park G is strictly for Lagos worshippers while Odofin/Shimawa has been reserved for Ikorodu and members from Shagamu/Ibadan routes. Oloparun is for participants coming from Ogijo and exit to Lagos through Ikorodu; Shimawa is for vehicles coming from Shimawa and Ikorodu, while commercial buses are to park at a section of Shimawa Car Park
