Marathon Messiah’s Praise, the world’s longest annual non-stop gospel musical event, in honour of Pastor E. A. Adeboye the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), is set to hold from February 27, 2017 March 2nd for 75 Hours non-stop praise and worship across five different continents.
The Marathon Messiah’s Praise which is a programme of the National Young Adults and Youth Affairs of RCCG birthed in 2012 as 70-Hour Marathon Messiah’s Praise. For this year’s edition, countries like Nigeria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, South Africa, Dubai, UK, and the USA have been chosen as destinations. According to the organisers, this year’s edition is being tagged, “The Sovereign God”
“Considering the nature of the programme, officiating would be on a shift basis. As we praise the ‘Sovereign God’ across the globe, while the stages outside Nigeria will be ministering at their allotted time, there won’t be any activity on the Nigerian stage but the audience in Nigeria will join other worshippers other stages virtually as screens will be provided at the Youth Centre to view and join the other stages during their ministrations,” they explained.
