South Africa will be hosting Bethel Music, the well known collective of worshipers from Bethel Church in Redding California, this March.
Port Elizabeth worshipers can look forward to attending a Bethel Music worship night at Fathers House Family Church in North End, Port Elizabeth, on March 30. The city was originally not on the itinerary, but was soon added due to the overwhelming response of fans on a Face Book page that was created as a petition. “We are thankful that Port Elizabeth has been added to the itinerary,” shares Pastor George Georgiou of Fathers House. “We know that people from many churches with a hunger for life-changing moments in God’s presence will gather to worship. We have been overwhelmed by the offers to assist made by churches across the city. Our church community is healthier than most people give it credit! This is an opportunity to both receive and refresh. We are also confident that worship has a significant influence on the spiritual climate of a city and are looking forward to seeing the fruit of that.” The venue is preparing for 2400 people and tickets will be on sale later this afternoon.
