It’s a popular weekend in the United Kingdom as several groups gather for various conferences, fashion shows, music events and more. Selling out the SSE Arena, Wembley with over 20,000 in attendance is a group you may not have expected to have such an international influx. Christian Evangelicals have gathered from all over the world to take part in a special event called “World Evangelism Conference”. According to the source, this is the first of its kind, yet not the first time this organization has hosted events in the United Kingdom. Leaders of the Evangelical movement, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, President and founder of Nigerian based ministry known as LoveWorld Inc. and International Televangelist Benny Hinn, of Benny Hinn Ministries will be the hosts of this mega event. With each Evangelical leader having a following in the millions, this 3-day event coming out of Wembley Arena has been broadcasted to evangelicals all around the world as thousands come to attend.

What is Evangelism?
Within the Christian faith, a large part of the practice is to share with others. This is called “evangelism”. While evangelism can be as casual and simple as sharing your personal faith and beliefs with someone, it is with the intention of bringing a non-believer into an understanding of Jesus and his teachings that one evangelizes. As a people with devoted faith to their beliefs, this conference is meant for training and equipping Christians with ways to share their faith with others.

President of LoveWorld Inc., Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, is leading a movement of Christian evangelists and his teachings and philanthropic efforts are being spoken about from one side of the world to the other. Both Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and Pastor Benny Hinn have an incredible size of a following and together, they cannot be stopped. When it comes to international influence, the two evangelical leaders are setting the path of our current day for Christianity to be spread to the ends of the earth. This is a very popular mandate in the Christian faith as it is stated in scripture from the Christian Bible:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Unity in Faith
While the rest of the world views religion as something that causes division, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has focused his international ministry on bringing people into unity by teaching and expressing the love of God to all nations, in several languages. This conference is a clear representation of that unity as different groups of people join together, having nothing in common except for a genuine love of God and sharing that love with others.

The Gospel Meets Technology
In attendance at the conference were several world renown leaders, pastors, and artists within the Christian faith. As previously stated, this is the first conference of its kind to be hosted by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and the impact has been immense, not only throughout London, but throughout the whole world. Millions of people have tuned in via live stream to take part in the inspirational teachings and sessions from the 3-day long conference. In addition to leading the movement of international evangelism, Oyakhilome and Hinn have taken a strong focus on technology in the way they promote the Christian Gospel. With endless online resources, communities and publications, the ministry is reaching millions of people around the world on a day to day basis.
In one of the first sessions, the speaker compared sharing the Gospel to technology. For Christians, knowing how to use the Gospel in your life is like knowing how to use technology. Something small can be used to make a huge impact and bring global change, but it is up to people to know how to use it. Christians have joined this conference to learn how to better use their “spiritual technology” and reach the world with their faith in Jesus Christ.
