Pastor Chris’ International Pastors’ and Partners’ Conference 2021 concludes
After a week of celebrations, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s International Pastors’ and Partners’ Conference (IPPC) 2021 and its sub-events concluded on Sunday, November 21st.
As the highly anticipated International Pastors’ and Partners’ Conference kicked off on Monday, November 15th, the CEO of LoveWorld Inc., Pastor Deola Philips, addressed the audience.
She encouraged the handpicked delegates to collect inspiration from every moment of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s International Pastors’ and Partners’ Conference.
On the opening day, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome talked about God’s word.
“Take His word as truth; that means what God says is exactly what it is,” he said.
He also emphasized that the most important thing in our lives is to discover our purpose and fulfill it.
He went on to say that many people fulfill what friends and family expect from them but neglect what God has in store for them.
The audience consisted of various pastors and partners of Christ Embassy, or the LoveWorld Ministry as it is also called, who had received special invitations to attend the event.
The delegates flew into Nigeria from countries such as France, the United States, Canada, Senegal, the United Kingdom and Uzbekistan.
“The IMCC has been excellent”
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s International Media Connectors’ Conference (IMCC) ran from Sunday, November 14th to Monday, November 16th and taught participants how to leverage social media and technology to spread the word of God and the LoveWorld Ministry.
Attendees from all over the world praised the program during and after the event.
“My first time here has been excellent and amazing, and I want to thank God for the opportunity,” one of the Nigerian participants said.
“My experience so far has been so exciting, and I just want to share two points with you. The data analysis training that we had was exceptional and with that, I am going back to make sure that the data that we have in our zone is pushed to the advantage, hallelujah,” an attendee from Cameroon stated.
Other participants said that they had learned how to create content about the gospel and how to hold online services.
Pastor Chris’ special teenage conference
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome hosted a special conference for teenagers from Monday, November 15th to Wednesday, November 17th called the International Teens Pastors’ and Leaders Conference (ITPLC).

Expectations were high ahead of the International Teens Pastors’ and Leaders Conference.

I look forward to paying rapt attention to every session of the program and to receive all that God has in store for me.
