The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has announced its Perfect Jubilee Convention as part of its 70th anniversary celebrations.
This year’s convention is said to symbolize a major milestone in the historical and divinely orchestrated history of the church.
Speaking at a press conference to announce activities marking its 70th anniversary celebration at Emmanuel Park, Camp of Redemption, Joseph Obayemi, the Continental Overseer for the North African Continent, said: “RCCG has been divinely revealed to our late founder and general superintendent, Josiah Akindayomi, in the year 1952. His obedience, zeal, trust in God and commitment to prayer and the word of God truly watered the mustard seed that God planted 70 years ago in a giant, colossal kingdom vehicle that the world sees today.
Obayemi said that over the past 70 years, the Redeemed Christian Church of God has brought the gospel of the Kingdom of God to more than 197 nations and territories around the world with millions of souls saved and engaged in the development of human capital.
He added that the church has also impacted lives, communities and nations through our various social impact and investment programs.
As part of the planned activities to celebrate the anniversary, Obayemi said the mission authority has organized the Jubilee March which will take place around the world on July 31, 2022; seven prayer huts have been created for people who want secluded places to pray at different locations on the campground during the convention; free technology and digital education training to empower thousands of people and 70,000 people will be trained within one year.
Other activities to mark the occasion, he said, will include different sports competitions, free food for millions, among others.
“As we are expecting millions of people at redemption camp during the 7 day period of this year’s convention, adequate security has been provided and traffic will be smooth in the campground with the assistance of the team at circulation of the RCCG.

“It is important to note that hostel accommodation will be provided for many of our volunteer workers and many of those who require elaborate accommodation should request various accommodation chalets on the camp. The Convention will be broadcast live on all RCCG channels including Dove Television, RTM and all social media channels,” he said.
Obayemi pointed out that for RCCG as a mission, the Jubilee represents a year of harvesting souls into the kingdom of our God, the deliverance of many from captivity and the transformation of many slaves into kings and priests through the salvation of our Lord. Jesus Christ. “God helped us achieve them through our many outreaches around the world earlier this year – and we’re just getting started.
“As a mission committed to the development of our home nation of Nigeria, Jubilee is a season when we see God freeing our nation from the many challenges the nation is currently facing – we are confident that indeed, the Nigeria will become the delight of all nations,” he added.
He affirmed the RCCG’s commitment to world peace and the prosperity of nations, families and individuals. “It is our belief that this Jubilee year will mark a complete turnaround for the world economically and in many other ramifications. God will assert his authority as sovereign owner and ruler of all nations,” Obayemi added.
