The world’s finest gospel artistes led the crowd into fiery praise and worship into God’s glorious embrace. Over 70 000 people united and inspired with reverence over musicians overpowering musical ministering.
Explaining the choice of theme, The Experience Convener, Pastor Paul Adefarasin of House On The Rock Church said, “The theme ‘Jesus our Peace’ is significant because it precedes a crucial election year. Despite many challenges Nigerians may face, we cannot afford to lose faith in God’s ability to turn things around for our good, choosing to see a bright future, the Nigeria of our dreams, one that we can proudly bequeath to the ‘next-generations.’ Above all, peace must be our ultimate candidate, regardless of the outcome of the elections – we all need to work together for a peaceful win.”
Pastor Paul Adefarasin continued by stressing that not only is the annual concert a source of inspiration to millions of gospel fans and congregants, but it is also a tourist attraction for the nation of Nigeria.

“The Experience is a major contributor to both our National and State economies through tourism and its associated businesses.”, Adefarasin continued, noting that “Entrepreneurs have developed and birthed various enterprises which substantially contribute to the economy in areas of human capital development, hospitality, commerce and industry.

“The Entertainment sector of the economy has also blossomed over the last 12 years of the Experience. This is evident as many of our indigenous gospel artistes who featured on its platform have become highly sought-after internationally, with significant changes in their personal economies. Several international collaborations between our home-based music ministers and their foreign counterparts have been birthed on this very platform.”
With an incredibly successful Experience 2018 behind us, millions of fans are already looking forward to the next one.
