The founder and senior pastor of the House on the Rock Church, Paul Adefarasin, stated in his Press Conference last week that the Experience concert was birthed to show his love for God and fulfil his yearnings of seeing that lives get transformed with individuals set on the path of righteousness.
He said this in reaction to why offerings and gate fees were not collected at the concert. According to him, God will provide for the propagation of the gospel and people should not see Pastors as beggars.
“There are people who tag the church as money grabbers. We know money is important to preach the gospel and win souls, but we respect that God supplies and He does that in a way that the Church has not to be a beggar,” he said.
He further stated that the concert is a significant contributor to the national and state economies through tourism, human capital development, hospitality and commerce.
“The Experience is a significant contributor to both our National and State economies through tourism and its associated businesses. Entrepreneurs have developed and birthed various enterprises which substantially contribute to the economy in areas of human capital development, hospitality, commerce and industry.

The concert is to show love for God and fulfil his yearnings of seeing that lives get transformed with individuals set on the path of righteousness.
