2007 NATIONAL CONFERENCE
Since the birthing of the Emergent Church through National (Corporate) expression in 1989, there have been 17 conventions. The 2007 convention will make the 18th of such annual gatherings of the Lord’s people across the Nation for Holy Convocations.
The Convocations are prophetic, in that the mind of the Lord for the church at the end times are expressed, and divine charges go forth to the emerging body of God’s Sons across the Nation. It has recently assumed the status of an International Convention, as brethren from outside Nigeria also attend.
There were apprehensions, as to whether the 2007 conference should hold, or not; judging form political utterances that tend to send signals of fear. On seeking the Lord, however, He made it clear the conference holding or not depends on us; with clear indications of the need for prayers for the state of affairs in the Nation.
WE HAVE DECIDED THEREFORE THAT THE 2007 NATIONAL CONVENTION SHOULD HOLD, AT ABUJA, NIGERIA BETWEEN APRIL 04TH – 09TH 2007, AND ALSO RESOLVE TO TAKE OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE SPIRITUALLY AND SILENCE EVERY OPPOSITIONS – AMEN!

However, each fellowship may set aside additional periods to fast and pray towards the 2007 National Conference, and the Nation.
GOD SHALL HEAR OUR CRIES FOR NIGERIA!

Brethren from outside Nigeria, who wish to be acquainted with the Lord’s burden for His church at the end times, of raising an army of sons, are encouraged to attend or send representatives.
It is clear these conferences are favoured with the finger of prophecies, to point the way to Zion; and to let God’s emerging sons know how far they have gone on the road to mount Zion and how far they yet have to go.
Note: All Brethren from outside Nigeria, seeking to attend the conference should inform us of the details of their coming and the number coming from such country; arrangements can then be made to receive and transport them around for the conference.
