Pastors Tom and Bonnie—along with their national and international guests—touched over 30,000 people during the annual action-packed week!

Every night crowds grew bigger, louder and stronger as spare seats were nowhere in sight and parking lots overflowed onto surrounding grass fields! It was a reformation experience for the Ages, and testimonies are still pouring in from those who took part in Action.

Saturday’s men's and women’s events also contributed to the massive outpouring as thousands of early birds came for the indoor Women’s Meeting as Pastor Bonnie, Pastor Paige Divelbiss, and Pastor Prisca Maphiwa ministered to more than 1,500 women. At the same time, the Men’s 7 a.m. breakfast/meeting on the outdoor amphitheater saw Pastor Tom, Pastor Tony and Dr. Mullins preaching from the bed of a Ford pickup truck to more than 1700 men—who chowed down a complimentary breakfast before the real meat of the Word.

Super Sunday was the result of an all-star Action week as over 9,000 people flocked together under the sun to praise God in fellowship and listen to the prophetic words of Rev. Elias Ndeda. “Super Sunday was awesome,” said one attendee. “A life changing experience with Pastor Bonnie leading worship… The horses galloping and the men’s commissioning created a heavenly atmosphere!”
