From Thursday May 24 to Saturday May 26 in Lagos, the maiden edition of the Excel Convention will hold at the Charis Event Centre, Ikeja. The convention which is the very first of its kind in Nigeria and Africa as a whole is being organised by an Evangelist from Kentucky, United States of America, Dr. Glenn Arekion, who is a constant visitor to Nigeria for 25 years now.
â€œI am looking forward to May 2018 when we will host our very first Excel Convention in the great Nigerian, city of Lagos. This is a dream becoming a reality. In 2017, I made my 105th trip in Nigeria and as you know I love going to this great nation and I have been going to Nigeria for 25 years. I know that I am called to Nigeria. I consider myself to be a missionary to Nigeria,â€ Arekion noted during a pressing briefing in Lagos to announce the forthcoming event.
Tagged, â€˜Imparting the Supernatural in Youâ€™, the evangelist who said, â€œI am super excited about this yearâ€™s 1st Annual Convention in Lagos, Nigeria,â€ revealed that renowned preacher and author, Dr. Roberts Liardon, who is a reservoir of information on the keys to the supernatural in the lives of the great preachers of the past, will grace the occasion as special guest. Stressing in the significance of the theme for the convention, Glenn said, â€œI believe in the Supernatural and I have stated over and over again that, powerlessness is the blight of the modern church. Today we have eloquence and information but no power to bring about change in peopleâ€™s lives,â€ he said.
On his choice to hold the â€˜Excel Conventionâ€™ in Lagos, he said: â€œI am a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ from America, I have been here in Nigeria over 100 times preaching. But this is my first Excel convention in Nigeria that will be held in Lagos. Lagos is one of my favourite places in the world, I find the people very warm and receptive and on fire for God, to me Lagos is a perfect place.â€
