On Friday, February 21st, over 2,000 teenagers converged at the indoor sports hall of the Ahmadu Bello stadium, Kaduna, North-West Nigeria, for a special Teens Conference, tagged ‘Perfecting Teens for tomorrow’ with the esteemed Zonal Pastor of Christ Embassy North West Zone 1, Pastor Marcel Obode.
The unique and strategic outreach was set to re-orient, re-organize and re-engineer the young minds with God’s Word, giving them the right direction and focus for tomorrow. The conference was aimed at helping them explore the unlimited potentials of their minds and putting them in a position of advantage to become all God purposed for them to be.
The conference kicked off with a session of prayers, led by Pastor Rudolf Smith, Group Pastor of Christ Embassy Zaria and soul-lifting songs of worship and praises to God, led by the Loveworld Teens Praise Team in Kaduna. The teenagers present poured out their hearts to God with hands lifted in worship and thanksgiving for His graciousness. Loveworld Rap Nation artiste, Temple Nation, took the stage with electrifying rap music that got the teenagers and young adults dancing and chanting with great excitement. Special musical renditions, choreography, rap and spoken word presentations were also featured from the teens. During a special plenary session, Brother Roy Okhidievbie, a professional security analyst, resounded the negative effects of cultism and drug abuse and urged the teenagers to desist from such acts.
The excitement at the event peaked when Pastor Marcel Obode took the podium to minister to the expectant teenagers. While ministering, Pastor Marcel specially prayed for the attendees to be liberated from any stronghold that tends to misdirect them from God’s preordained path for their lives. He made an altar call, and over 500 teenagers rushed out to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. It was a great harvest of souls into God's kingdom, and certainly, the lives of the attendees have been transformed.
Copies of Rhapsody of Realities Teevo were distributed to all participants as the tool they need to chart their course in life. The teenagers were elated, as the conference has opened their minds to see what the future holds for them.
