Thousands of people are set to flock to the heart of East London to attend one of the most inspirational events of the year. Hosted by Kingsway International Christian Centre, The International Gathering of Champions, or IGOC as it is popularly known, will take place at the church’s head quarters in Waterden Road, Hackney. This annual event that has been taking place for the past 13 years will relocate next year to make way for the 2012 Olympics.
Bringing together more than 160,000 people, IGOC is a gathering quite unlike any other. The inspirational conference offers an exciting line up of international speakers, teachers and musical maestros from the USA, Africa and the UK. Their sole mission is to encourage delegates and teach them how to live successful lives.
This year’s Conference, entitled ‘The Heavens Opened’ will focus on the great successes each person has the potential to achieve in their family, career, finances and personal lives. Host Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo says: ‘We are excited about IGOC 2007 and we believe God will make it memorable as we experience good changes in our lives and our circumstances. It will also be memorable for another reason – this will be the last IGOC conference to be held in Hackney, because our land has been acquired for the 2012 Olympics.”
The eight day conference will bring together speakers from all across the globe, including, Bishop Eddie Long, Dr Cindy Trimm, Dr Mike Murdock, Pastor Robb Thompson, Dr Marcus Lamb, Dr Bill Winston and Pastor Jamal Bryant all hailing from the USA.
