Pretoria–The Annual Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Levites conference took place at Pretoria Show Grounds from Thursday to Saturday, attracting 25 branches in South Africa as well as countries such as Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia.
Brother Danny Genge, the tribe’s leader told this publication that the purpose of the conference was to train, empower and ensure uniformity in all ECG branches.
“We’ve hosted these conferences since 2015 and most of those who attended have become assistant pastors,” he said.
Pastors Sandy, Sam, Brian (National Pastor, ECG America) and Allen (Resident Pastor, ECG New York), spoke words of wisdom and empowerment to the Levites who listened intently and eagerly shouting words in agreement with what was delivered.
Easily Chagwedera, a Levite from Zimbabwe Harare said rich wisdom can only be found in conferences such as these.
“The speakers made me realise that going back home; I must serve whole heartedly and not cause problems for my leader. I’m more determined to relate well with everyone, align my myself in such a way that I will not deviate from my father’s (Prophet Bushiri) vision for the church,” he said.
Satisfied with the success of the conference despite the many challenges faced, Genge reached out to Levites who have never attended these conferences, “Staying away means you are left behind while your counterparts are elevated spiritually.”
The conference ended with Pastor Elijah encouraging everyone to go out and make a change, to go out into buses, trains and to preach the gospel of Christ after praying for every Levite with Pastors Sandy, Brian and Allen.
The leader also announced that the conference will find it’s way to different provinces of South Africa to accommodate those that fail to travel to Pretoria for the annual conference for various reasons.
