“What a great conference!” exclaimed a young woman while leaving the Bank United Center on Sunday August 2nd, the last day of the miracle conference “Conquering the Giants” organized by Tabernacle of Glory led by senior Pastor Gregory Toussaint. Many recognized it was the first time Haitian Christians pulled off such a mega event in Miami for God’s glory.
(AUG 2015-CORAL GABLES, FL) From July 30th to August 2nd, tens of thousands of people from diverse backgrounds, nationalities, colors, ages, and languages flocked to the Bank United Center (1245 Dauer Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33146) to participate in the Tabernacle of Glory’s multicultural conference “Conquering the Giants”.
The 4-day conference grandly ended 40 days of fasting launched on June 23rd at North Miami Senior High Auditorium (13110 NE 8th Ave, North Miami, FL 33161). During the 36 first days of fasting in the North Miami auditorium, many giants fell down such as lust, anger, jealousy, poverty etc. To end the 40 days, the Conference was held at the Bank United Center, which could accommodate 8000 people.
Sunday August 2nd was the apotheosis of the conference that ended with a miracle healing service led by Pastor Benny Hinn who preached on the power of the blood of Jesus. “Everything I touch is covered by the blood. The blood gives me favor”, he said. Many were healed that night and the healing anointing was thick in the place.
Haitian Christians made History
Many participants were amazed at the conference organization. Some asked, “How many churches pulled off this mega event”? “Just one. Tabernacle of Glory. A Haitian church”, was the answer. Others added it was the first time something like this was done in the Haitian Christian community. “Well done”! congratulated Martha, an African American. “And you see people from different ethnicities; that also was a terrific thing”. Definitely, Haitian Christians made history this summer.
“It’s not easy to pull off such a mega event in Miami which is one the less evangelized city in America. 10% of the population claims to be religious”, explains Pastor Gregory Toussaint. “Well-known preachers such as Joel Osteen, TD Jakes or Creflo Dollar tried to hold crusades here but they failed. If we could do it, it’s because of God’s grace and favor”, he continues.
Pastor Toussaint adds that the success of the Conquering the Giants Conference sheds a positive light on the Haitian community. “It shows that Haitians don’t just practice voodoo; many of them can serve God with excellence.”
“The worship and the speakers were great”
The 4-day miracle conference has been a blessing to many. Some said having been blessed by both the guest speakers and the guest artists. “The worship was good and the speakers were great”, said Jacky, a Hispanic woman.
Many participants were happy to hear live in Miami Sinach, the well-anointed Nigerian artist who sings, “I know who I am” and “Awesome”. They also worshipped with Micah Stampley (“Heaven on Earth”), Phil Driscoll, Ben Hur and the band Voice of Inspiration led by Cheraky Toussaint.
The participants could hear the prophetic words of Prophet Brian Carn who prophesied Thursday and Friday on the lives of many. He also taught on “How to flow on the Prophetic”. “People are afraid of prophecy because they fear it may not happen. However when you prophesy according to the Word of God you can never go wrong”, taught Prophet Carn.
People came from far away to take part in the conference. A whole family of 3 came from France especially for it. “We heard of Pastor Gregory and his ministry at ICC (Impact Centre Chretien) church (France). We searched Pastor Greg on the Internet and found out about the conference. That’s why we are here”, they said. People came from Haiti, Canada, Switzerland, the Caribbean and, of course, from all over the United States to be part of the “Conquering the giants” conference in Coral Gables, Florida.
“The 4 days of Conference have been a blessing. Everything combined to make it great, either the worship or the Word. The Lord has manifested his presence”, testified Yvette. “It was great conference. I have been blessed particularly by the worship and Benny’s message on the blood of Jesus”, said Mary from Jacksonville. According to Amlet, the 4-day conference was “phenomenal”. “That’s not something you find everyday in Miami. Congratulations to Tabernacle of Glory and Pastor Gregory Toussaint.”
Prayers for Haiti and Dominican Republic
One of the highlights of the conference was when Pastor Gregory Toussaint and Pastor John Santana jointly prayed for Haiti and Dominican Republic. They prayed particularly for peace and harmony between the two countries. The multiethnic conference gathered Christians of different nationalities, including Haitians and Dominicans who, far from any discrimination and hatred, were praising God with one voice and a one heart. Haitians and Dominicans must conquer the giants of racial hatred and division, advanced one of the organizers.
Many languages were spoken at the Conquering the Giants Conference. The participants could worship, pray and hear uplifting and spirit-filled teachings about dreams, faith, prophecy and finances in many languages. The Dominican Pastor Ruddy Gracia preached in Spanish, Yvan Castanou preached in French, Pastors Rimsky and Borneon worshipped and prayed in Creole, Pastor Benny Hinn, Prophet Brian Carn, Phil Driscoll, and Dr Mike Murdock preached or taught in English. The participants appreciated this effort from the organizers to speak various languages. “I don’t speak English very well, and I appreciated the fact that some speakers spoke Spanish and that there was translation devices”, said Maria.
Finally, the greatest of miracles happened when hundreds of people gave their lives to Jesus Saturday and Sunday night after the altar call by Pastor Benny Hinn. “Salvation is the greatest miracle”, concluded Pastor Hinn.
Tabernacle of Glory will organize a big conference in December for the Youth, with Pastor Benny Hinn and Israel and the New Breed.
