WorldStage Newsonline— The 13th edition of The House on the Rock’s annual gospel concert ‘The Experience’ will hold on December 7, 2018 in Lagos.
Tagged ‘Jesus, Our Peace’ and scheduled to kick off at 7pm at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, the organizer has announced that the event will feature renowned indigenous and international gospel artistes such as Don Moen, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Timi Dakolo, Travis Greene, Nathaniel Bassey, , Vicki Yohe, Chioma Jesus, Tope Alabi, Eben , Tim Godfrey, Mike Aremu, Glowreeyah, Onos, Eno Michael and Chee. And for the first time, this years’ Experience will feature JJ Hairston, Planetshakers and ADA.
According to the senior pastor and convener of The Experience 13, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, the inspiration behind the 2018 theme is to highlight who Jesus is, especially in the world we live in today – the Prince of Peace.
Adefarasin emphasized that regardless of the outcome of the forthcoming elections; peace is the ultimate candidate that all Nigerians should support.
“Peace (as I know it) is not the absence of tension but the presence of Justice,” he said.
According to the organizers, the concert which is free to all will continue to provide a platform where attendants can pray for the country and worship God together regardless of tribe, denomination, creed or language.
The Experience started as a thought inspired by God in the mind of the Metropolitan Senior Pastor of all House on The Rock churches, Pastor Paul Adefarasin and is now unarguably the most anticipated gospel music event in Africa among Christians and non-Christians alike.
Averaging a yearly attendance of over 500,000 people at the venue, with millions more watching online from all over the globe, it has grown to become the biggest gospel concert in the world.
