Gospel music sermon with The Master
IT was an awesome event where the Apostolic Faith Mission in Zimbabwe (AFMZ) led by Reverend Cossum Chiangwa’s praise and worship choir blessed over 50 000 congregants, who had gathered for the church’s annual Easter holidays youth conference held at Rufaro Conference Centre in Chatsworth in Gutu, Masvingo province.
The three-day event for the youths in the church, began in spectacular fashion on Good Friday with popular gospel musician Minister Praise Goveya and the praise and worship team leading the congregants into an inner place of deep worship and ended on a high note on Easter Sunday after preaching from Chiangwa.
The music, which was being belted out from a powerful public address system, could be heard by villagers who were some kilometres away, and this turned out to be another blessing for them, as the Word of God in song also reached out to the Gutu community.
Fast-rising musician Goveya did not disappoint and captivated the gathering with a powerful performance on stage that left many in the crowd clamouring for more, while the choir’s flawless display proved that experience is the best when it comes to performing at such grand events.
The huge crowds during the three-day event, who comprised congregants from the church’s local assemblies as well as neighbouring countries, who enjoyed themselves despite the language barriers.
Powerful teachings from various preachers, including the AFMZ youth leaders pastors David Chitsvare and Augustin Bura, were among the major highlights of the
Turning Point Conference with the choir singing praise and worship songs during the intervals leading to the next sermons.
Chitsvare expressed his joy and attributed every success at the conference to God’s grace that had enabled them to host a conference of that magnitude.
“All speakers and musicians were mighty used of God and we witnessed powerful word, signs and wonder,” he said.
“As the YPU department, we would like to express our joy and gratitude to God that we managed to host a conference of that magnitude to the extent that we had such big numbers from day one up to the end besides economic challenges by the grace of God.”
