In addition, ”due to its nature as a non-stop event, everyone attending this event, either as volunteers in the various units or as attendees, will be provided with free accommodation, feeding, and transportation within Redemption Camp for the entire duration.
Preparations are already in the works to ensure that all-important areas like security, accommodation, welfare, transportation, etc are adequately provided” while giving insight into the logistics and preparation going towards the event.
Alongside praising and worshipping God, the newly inaugurated unit, Soteria, will be to praying, visiting schools, markets, and correctional facilities in neighbouring communities in a bid to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world in word and indeed.
From its inception in 2012, its major objectives remain to celebrate God’s faithfulness and mercy upon the life of an iconic figure, Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God whose influence spans many countries, both great and small, and the birthing of a new dispensation of worship where Christians all over the world are united in lifting up their hearts to God Almighty.
