All set for Worship Revolution
EBENEZER World Outreach Ministries will from Friday host the Call to Worship Africa at the Harare Civic Centre grounds.
Running under the theme “Worship Revolution”, the evangelical praise and worship programme is organised by an inter-denominational non-profit ministry founded by pastors Phillip and Charlotte Pike in 2009.
The event will have family fun and worship workshops in a mini-festival on Saturday.
“CTWA seeks to start a revolution of a different sort. One where God is restored to His rightful place, at the centre of everything we do, creating a culture of integrity and worship as well as positioning the nation for restoration,” said administrator Felicity Tumpkin. The event brings together partners and friends of Call to Worship Africa as well as worshippers of all denominations, backgrounds and ethnicities.
Part of the experience will be a 200-strong band and choirs from over 40 partner churches in Zimbabwe.
In addition to the guest gospel musicians will be an evangelical partnership with the Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe, which has a membership of more than 400 churches.
CTWA gathers annually in Zimbabwe in worship, prayer and prophetic declarations for the nation.
Musicians and music groups have been born out of CTWA and over the last five years there has been great expansion which has seen CTWA re-branding to Call to Worship Global (CTWG).
CTWG has hosted renowned international gospel musicians who include American Grammy Award winner, Donnie McClurkin and Zimbabwe’s Mkhululi Bhebe of Joyous Celebration as well as a host of local gospel artistes.
“We have held this gathering consistently for the past eight years with attendance averaging between 3 500 and 4 500.
“We have also held smaller Call to Worship events in different parts of the country and it is our desire to do more,” said Pr Charlotte Pike.
Last year an attendance of over 7 000 people was recorded at the Harare International Conference Centre, while this year’s edition is expected to attract an even larger audience.
Since its inception the mission of Call to Worship Africa is to advance the Kingdom of God through love, to magnify and glorify Christ through praise and worship igniting a passion for the presence of God.
The CTWG’s vision is to provide a platform where people from enormously diverse backgrounds can come together in unity to experience the presence of God and worship with the mandate of raising an anointed, spirit led and passionate worshippers’ generation.
