Leaders from churches, businesses, charities and government across Nigeria are joining Grace & Light for our third annual National Conference on Social Righteousness.
Each year delegate numbers increase as leaders hear about the transformation in the lives and impact of those who have attended our previous conferences. They come together to share how to bring positive change into Nigerian society.
Tassie Ghata, international coordinator, said: “We believe God is calling on leaders who still put him first to band together and plan how to make a stand for righteousness in all situations.
“We have spent decades complaining the Nigerian church is miles wide but only inches deep. It is time we stopped just talking and started dredging the river bed. This conference aims to inspire and equip Christian leaders to do just this through listening to visionary speakers, discussions and practical planning.”
This year the conference is running 19-22 September with Rev Les Issac OBE of Ascension Trust as our keynote speaker. Les is the founder and CEO of Ascension Trust and of Street Pastors, now an international initiative that engages with people on the streets to listen and help them. Les is also an honorary Ecumenical Canon at Southwark Cathedral in the UK.
Please pray for Les and Julaine Hedman who is travelling with him to Nigeria, Tassie, Mark Hopkins and our event team, as well as our many delegates. We are asking God to open their minds, hearts and spirits to what he wants to do in their organisations over the coming year.
