Mega Crusade for MoBay

Church pushes spiritual revival for troubled city

Thursday, February 22, 2018

MONTEGO BAY, St James - As the security forces sustain the state of public emergency in St James, the church in Montego Bay is continuing its drive for transformation with an initiative aimed at bringing hope and healing to the city.

Through a national conference and miracle crusade called 'Supernatural Encounter Jamaica 2018: Uniting the church, Igniting Revival', church leaders are positioning the April 20-21 event as a sustainable tool in the fight against crime.

“We see this as a part of a holistic approach to the issues we're facing in society. The security forces and Government are doing their part, and from the spiritual side, we're working as well,” said Rev Mary Wildish, chair of the planning committee. Wildish is the founder and president of Trumpet Call Ministries International (TMCI), which is hosting the two-day event along with Fellowship Tabernacle, the St James Ministers' Fraternal, and numerous other pastors and leaders from across the island.

“This will be an unprecedented gathering in the city of Montego Bay. The power of God to save, heal and deliver will be present. Many will be healed of sicknesses and diseases, many will be delivered from the powers of darkness and many will come to salvation,” said Wildish at the media launch of the event held at the Montego Bay Convention Centre recently.

“People are looking for hope and for answers at this time. The government has called on the church to play her part. This conference and miracle crusade will be a supernatural Encounter to remember as we see the power of God, the love of God, and the healing of God poured out upon our city.”

According to the TCMI president, churches across the island have been praying and fasting for breakthrough in the crime problem.

“It's now time to gather and see the Lord work in his power to redeem the hearts of men. We're calling all concerned citizens, church members, leaders, pastors and public official to join together at a critical time in our nation's history.”

Senior pastor of the Miami-based King Jesus Ministries International, Apostle Guillermo Maldonado, will be the featured guest speaker. Maldonado leads a multicultural church considered to be one of the fastest growing in the USA.

“Guillermo Maldonado has been raised up by God to bring the supernatural power of God to this generation, fulfilling the mandate of scripture as declared in 1 Corinthians verse 4, that our speech and preaching should not be with enticing words of man's wisdom, but with the demonstration of the Spirit's power,” asserted Wildish.

Apostle Maldonado has authored more than 30 books, has travelled globally preaching the uncompromised gospel of Jesus Christ, and has followed up with the demonstration of the power of God to nations across the world. He is highly regarded worldwide for his anointing and healing ministry, and has over 230 churches under his spiritual covering in a growing network that extends throughout the USA, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Supernatural Encounter Jamaica 2018 begins at the Montego Bay Convention Centre with an afternoon session on April 20 and continues on April 21 with a full day session from 10:00 am — 5:00 pm. It culminates with a mass miracle crusade at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre at 6:00pm.
