About Marathon Messiah's Praise
About seven years ago, Marathon Messiah’s Praise, the World’s longest non-stop annual gospel musical event began at the Redemption Camp, an emerging City along Lagos/Ibadan Expressway Nigeria. It is an event that is organized with two objectives: as a birthday gift to appreciate God for His mercies and faithfulness over the life of Pastor E.A. Adeboye, The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God; and as a gospel musical event that will birth a new pattern of worship in this dispensation. Since inception in 2012, six successful editions have so far been held from 70 Hours Marathon Messiah’s Praise to 71 Hours, 72 Hours, 73 Hours and 74 Hours, 75 Hours. Today, Marathon Messiah’s Praise has become an annual event that is growing in leaps and bounds. It expanded to other nations outside Nigeria in 2016 as 74 hours Marathon Messiah’s Praise (themed PRAISE BEYOND BORDERS) was held across three countries on two different continents to become a global event. Also, in 2017 at the 75 hours Marathon Messiah’s Praise (themed SOVEREIGN GOD) was held across 8 countries on five different continents.
From inception, the audience has grown from local to international and from a few hundreds of people to several thousands of live worshippers and millions of viewers on both local and international TV channels as well as on various digital channels. Marathon Messiah’s Praise is not about the worship leader, but brings both the worshipper and the worship leader to the understanding that all are worshippers. Every year, the number of invited worship leaders and groups increases with over 76 worship leaders and groups ministering in the last edition. The testimonies abound over the years, we trust that they will continue to multiply as the years unfold.
