A sampling of the crowd who joined in the festivities. “We have brought together what we think are the best representation of people who not only capture the excitement of this conference, but who truly epitomize the essence of this international event,” said Bishop Jakes.
Johannesburg is not only the largest and most populous city in South Africa, it’s one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world. It’s no wonder Bishop Jakes chose to have MegaFest there this year.
Bishop John Francis offered a spirited sermon to the crowd. He is founder and senior pastor of Ruach Ministries, one of the largest and fastest growing churches in the UK. Five services are held every Sunday, with more than 5,000 people in regular attendance.
“I want to leave a message that we care. I want South Africans to understand that all of us who could come did come and that many more wanted to be here,” says Bishop Jakes of the two-day MegaFest event.
More than 100,000 people came out to attend MegaFest International. Bishop Jakes and The Potter’s House continue their strong desire to help the people of Africa by building places of refuge for children who have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS in South Africa and Swaziland.
