Over the past 8 years, Marathon Messiah’s Praise has been on as the world’s longest non-stop interdenominational gospel musical event.
Over the past eight (8) years, legitimate sons and daughters of our Father-in-the-Lord in The Redeemed Christian Church of God have been coming together to appreciate God’s mercies and faithfulness over the life of Pastor E.A. Adeboye, General Overseer of the REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD with each hour representing one year of his life. In addition to this mandate, the event also operates as a platform that is creating a new pattern of worship across the globe.
Today, we are glad to announce to the whole world, the 9th edition of Marathon Messiah’s Praise. The 9th edition tagged 78 Hours Marathon Messiah’s Praise with the theme – Jesus, The Lamb of God will be held between the 2nd and 5th March, 2020 in 21 countries across six continents.
From 2012 when the event began, the first four editions were held in Nigeria while the event became a global phenomenon from 2016 when 74 Hours Marathon Messiah’s Praise was held in three countries. From 2016 onward, Marathon Messiah’s Praise has been setting new records year after year as more countries are joining us to lift the banner of praise to our God.
As the event has been witnessing astronomical growth over the years, it will also interest you to know that the Youth Centre of Redemption Camp which has been the venue of the 8 previous editions can no longer accommodate the thousands of worshippers that have been attending every year, this necessitated our Father-in-the-Lord, Pastor E.A. Adeboye to announce the Prayer Foyer of the 3 by 3Km auditorium, Redemption Camp as the new venue.
