House on the Rock has announced the 13th edition of its annual gospel concert “The Experience”. It is scheduled to hold on the 7th of December 2018 at the Tafawa Balewa Square Lagos, Nigeria from 7pm.
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 undoubtedly 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.
Themed Jesus, Our Peace, senior pastor and convener of The Experience, Paul Adefarasin explained that the inspiration behind the 2018 theme is to highlight who Jesus is, especially in the world we live in today as the Prince of Peace.
Shedding more light on the strategic theme for this year’s concert, Adefarasin emphasized that regardless of the outcome of the forthcoming elections; peace is the ultimate candidate that we should all support, and must be the candidate that wins. “Peace (as I know it) is not the absence of tension but the presence of Justice” he said. The concert according to him will be a continuous reminder that the God of Peace is with us.
This year’s edition will feature legendary musicians such as Don Moen, Kirk Franklin, and Donnie McClurkin Other artistes who will be returning include Travis Greene, Vicki Yohe,and ofcourse a powerful line up of award winning and renowned indigenous gospel artist like Nathaniel Bassey, Chioma Jesus, Tope Alabi, Eben ,Tim Godfrey, Mike Aremu, Glowreeyah, Timi Dakolo, Onos, Eno Michael And for the first time at The Experience is JJ Hairston, Planetshakers and ADA.
According to the organizers, the concert which is free to all will be hosted with exceptional professionalism, hospitality, security, excellence, unity and most importantly with a focus to continue to provide a platform where attendants can pray for our nation and worship God together regardless of tribe, denomination, creed or language. Pastor Adefarasin also iterated that whilst everyone is invited to The Experience 2018, it is advised to arrive at the venue early.
