Haoma Worgwu, the conference’s convener, passionately declared that every participant at the Light Conference is being released to their sectors of influence to solve regional and global problems while establishing God’s glory on earth. “You cannot leave the Light Conference and remain local,” she emphasized.
In the words of Patrick Kayne, “You can curse the darkness or light a candle, the choice is yours.” With the launch of the maiden edition of the Light Conference, this project has begun the journey to light candles across the globe, dispelling darkness and igniting positive transformation in different sectors of the economy.
