“We are mostly grateful God for the grace to excel in this programme, this is the eleventh year and the eleventh edition as well. We are also grateful to all the ministers who have been working with us from day one and all the past leaders who kept the flag flying in the circuit.
The programme is a special one because we are taking the lead in the promotion and acceptance of African culture in terms of language and dressing in a world that is embracing more of western lifestyle. We believe the church is the number one point to make people understand that there is pride in originality and also make youths understand that God made us African for a reasons.
If there is a reason for being African, it then means that God would also want us to worship him like Africans and not like the westerners whom we are mostly copying as if God does not understand our language or accept our originality as Africans.
We are known for extraordinary things and the grace of God will always be with us in this one” Bro. Promise Said.
