The week-long International Pastors and Partners Conference 2023 with Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has come to an end. It was a life-transforming event for so many of the delegates who attended from near and far.
It is essentially a celebration of the astonishing victories accomplished this year, the ‘Year of the Prolific Church’. The conference featured various special sessions and milestones achieved during the enormous impact of Christ Embassy across the world.
Counting the victories this year
We passed 200 epochal episodes of the highly successful ‘Your Loveworld Specials’, ensuring over 200 days of non-stop praises to God, and recorded the third consecutive year of the uninterrupted prayer chain.
We also saw the translation of the daily devotional, Rhapsody of Realities into over 8123 living languages, and witnessed the largest global healing crusade, Healing Streams Live Healing Services with Pastor Chris, with over 7 billion participants. It is, therefore, no surprise that IPPC 2023 was another hugely successful event in the LoveWorld calendar.
Individuals, groups, Churches, zones, regions, and the ministry at large celebrated in the glory of partnering with the man of God, Pastor Chris, in spreading the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Chris all around the world.
Running concurrently under the wide umbrella of the IPPC 2023 were the other sub-conferences including the International Media Connectors’ Conference (IMCC), which began on the 12th of November, and celebrated its 10th anniversary.
The International Teens Pastors and Leaders’ Conference (ITPLC) was another event that was held to celebrate the youth of today and empower them to be the leaders of tomorrow.
The International Pastors and Partners Conference kicked off on Monday, November 13th with the Pastors conference, then took a higher dive on day 4 which was the opening of the Partners session.
The LoveWorld Exhibitions displayed the global impact of various arms of the ministry and affiliate organizations. The prestigious LoveWorld Presidential Awards and the LoveWorld International Music and Arts Awards (LIMA) with Pastor Chris Oyakhilome brought the week-long event to a close.
“We are not from here,” says Pastor Chris
“We are not from here and we play by a different set of rules,” Pastor Chris told the delegates in one of the most profound and inspiring speeches at the International Pastors and Partners Conference 2023.
Pastor Chris told the delegates to always be conscious of their identity in Christ, and to carry themselves with dignity, always keeping the devil and his demons to flight.
The only reason why someone will miss the rapture is because they haven’t known the Lord. Pastor Chris said.
“It’s an honor to give to God…”
Pastor Chris reminds us to plan our giving, saying that it is an honor to give to God. “You can’t grow your financial life without the word of God. Build your faith in GOD’S eternal word.”
“Jesus wins you to himself and made you a partner in winning others. He is working with you to reach others. Whenever there’s a call to give, and it seems like what’s been asked is more than what you have, respond with what you have, Pastor Chris told the attending delegates.
He continued to say that we should give graciously. “God wants you to be expectant of what He is able to do. Faith is specific. So be specific in your request. Give joyfully because, “God takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without a cheerful (joyous, a prompt to do) giver whose heart is in his giving”.
