An experience dedicated to “unrestrained, prophetic intercession and worship” is being promised by the organisers of “The Refreshing”.
Featuring a host of local church leaders and ministers, the event is being put on by the Glory Seekers Worship Ministry in conjunction with the Shekinah Family Word Centre. It will be held on December 9 at the Shekinah Family Word Centre.
Attendees will join in worship with guest performers such as Bishop Arthur and Pastor Samantha Evans, Pastor Kellen Russell, Davian Chase, Minister Tanya R Duncombe, Minister Nashann Johnson, Anna Calixte, Keith Jones, Yasmin Newbold, and many others.
“ ‘The Refreshing’ has been set aside as a time to allow people from all walks of life to experience supernatural power and presence of God in ways unimaginable. This experience aims to create an atmosphere where healing, revival, renewing and refreshing can be seen. We expect the manifestation of miracles, signs and wonders as according to Mark 16:17,” said Charles Smith, an administrator of Shekinah.
One of the main goals of the event is give people “authentic encounters” with Christ, he added.
“For far too long the body of Christ have been comfortable with the norm; we’ve been OK with going into a worship service gathering one way and leaving the same, which should not be the case. We no longer put demands on the spirit of God. We have allowed our faith to waiver, but not anymore. God has mandated us as the real church to stand up and display his supernatural power within the earth. We host this experience with that expectation that God will do a new thing in the life of all those in attendance,” he said.
This upcoming worship experience, he said, will give believers fuel, hopefully re-energising their relationship with God.
“Persons should attend this event expecting to be healed, delivered and set free. It is an experience for those who have been wanting more; those who are weary of religion and routine. It is an awesome opportunity to experience the fullness of who our God is and always will be,” he said.
