Thisdocument aims at organizing the convention which is patterned afterthe experience of the upper room (Acts 1:13-14, 2:1-4). Theconvention will at achieving a number of objectives.
One of the objectives is celebrating Jesus Christ our king. The occasion will keen to nourish as well as honour Lord Jesus Christ who is the king of glory in deep worship and praises. The saints who will have gathered will offer reasonable services for Jesus’ pleasure (1 Peter 2:5, Heb. 13:15, Romans 12:1). The ultimate goal is that the king may be glorified in the midst of His chosen people.
The second objective will be perfecting the saints. It will be a golden moment and opportunity for the members as well as other participants to experience transformation via the instrumentality of the word and prayer ministries (Jude 1:20, Acts 20:32, Eph. 4:11-13). The event will have effective discipleship that will drive the righteous behaviours as well as a visible sonship mark like that of the upper room.
The third objective will be nurturing and strengthening the family bond. The convention will aim at promoting the family interactions as well as increasing oneness until all brethren will come to the unity of faith. Bonding activities such as communion, workshop sessions, impactful exhibitions and sharing among others will be evident in the convention (John 17:20-22, Eph. 3:8-10).
The forth objective will be impacting the society so as to enrich the kingdom. This shall be done via intercessory prayers which will be targeted at dismantling particular society ills and sowing a seed of righteousness (Jer. 1:10, Matt. 16:19). Compassionate work of demonstrating the light of the gospel will be carried out (Matt. 25:31-46, Matt. 5:13-16).
The fifth objective will be celebrating the MPIF 7th Anniversary. The convention’s key focus is recapping the journey so far, thanking the Lord for our today and asking the Lord to reenergize us so as to keep aglow the ministry principles for a glorious future (Col. 3:17, 1 Tim. 6:12).
The sixth and the final objective will be attracting families into the household of the king. The invited guests will be made the family members and we will also welcome them to be the kingdom heirs into the fold. The kingdom heirs are individuals who have joined but have not been welcomed officially into the fold (Acts 2:41-47, Acts 6:7, Esther 8:16-17).
