At least, six global and renowned gospel artists are set to headline this year’s edition of The Experience Gospel Concert. The Experience is an annual gospel Concert in Lagos that was initiated by Pastor Paul Adefarasin of House on the Rock Church. Since its inception, The Experience Gospel Concert has annually attracted thousands of Christians and others within and outside Nigeria, such that the event is usually watched via the Internet by many who couldn’t make it to the event.
The Concert will hold on the 7th December 2018 at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos from 7pm.
This year’s edition is tagged ” Jesus, our Peace.” Adefarasin, who is the convener of The Experience 13 , explained that the inspiration behind the 2018 theme of the concert, “Jesus, Our Peace”, is to highlight who Jesus is, especially in the world we live in today – the Prince of Peace .
He 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. “ As has been the norm since inception, The Experience 2018 will feature a powerful line up of award winning and renowned indigenous and international gospel artistes such as Don Moen , Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin , Timi Dakolo , Travis Greene, Nathaniel Bassey , Vicki Yohe, Chioma Jesus , Tope Alabi, Eben, Tim Godfrey, Mike Aremu, Glowreeyah , Onos , Eno Michael and Chee . And for the first time at The Experience is JJ Hairston , Planetshakers and ADA , ” the statement read in part.
According to the organizers , the concert which is free to all will be hosted with unparalleled professionalism , hospitality , security , excellence , unity and most importantly with a focus to continue to provide a platform where attendants can pray for Nigeria 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.
