The Apostolic Summit 2023 edition, hosted by New Creation Life Ministries International (NCL) pioneers Apostle Joy and Pastor Mary Museba was a mind blowing spiritual encounter.
The conference took place over the weekend in the heart of Zimbabwe at the Kwekwe mining museum.
It was the biggest Christian summit in the Midlands Province. Guests included government officials, industry champions, and NCL church members from as far as Zambia, South Africa, Lesotho, Ghana as well as having an online audience from all over the world.
The summit kicked off with a morning business class, the Kingdom Affluent Masters (KAM) sessions by Apostle Joy Museba.
An esteemed business person and one Mr. Jerry Nyazungu, the ‘Chartered Vendor’ was this year’s special guest. The evening sessions took a shift with the ministration through praise and worship by guest artist Minister Michael Mahendere.
He sang hits like ‘Ndinokuda’, ‘Makanaka Jesu’, ‘Tangai Neni’, ‘Guta Rehutiziro’, deep worship and calming of the atmosphere with the song ‘Ndamuona’, ‘Yahweh’ with ‘Salt of the Earth’ being the icing on the cake after a lifechanging ministration by Apostle Joy at the end of the service.
After Minister Mahendere’s praise and worship encounter, it was a great honour, as the NCL family had the summit host Apostle Joy dissecting the word. He left no stone unturned with a teaching on ‘Systems’ with reference to Isaiah 51 vs 2.
Apostle Joy dwelled on the fact that there are people who are systems, with reference to Abraham, and also his spiritual father, Prophet Makandiwa.
For the second day of the conference, Mathias Mhere took to the stage inciting the crowd to ‘kuita mhere mhere’ as his name suggests. He turned the tables so to speak with his hit tracks, ‘Turner ma Tables’, ‘Favour’ and also ‘Vimba NaJehova.’ Displaying some serious dance moves he engaged profusely with the congregation.
Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa was clear, thorough in his ministration. He took his time to make each and every one present understand the word. He made congregants realise that they have a ‘judge’ in their presence, according to Judges 2 vs 16 -18.
The third and final push of the Apostolic Summit was an intensified worship session with Minister Takesure Zama.
His two main tracks that he started with after powerful choruses were ‘Agere pachigaro’ and ‘Pane gore’. Apostle Joy then came in with the ‘reclaiming lost opportunities’ sermon focusing on the book of John.
