By EEW Magazine // News // Conferences
As buzz about Buffalo-based women’s ministry leader Dianna Hobbs’ 2018 prayer and worship conference on Saturday and Sunday June 23rd-June 24th heats up, her event just got another major boost.
It was formally announced Monday, June 11, 2018 that Power 96.5 FM/MIX1080, Western NY's leading source of inspiration and motivation for the community, has signed on as the official media sponsor of Hobbs’ Activate 2018 conference, which features Bishop T.D. Jakes’ chart-topping worship leader, Maranda Curtis, in its guest lineup.
“We are so excited that Power 96.5 FM/MIX 1080 is going to be the official media sponsor for this amazing conference!” said Sheila Brown, CEO of Vision Multimedia Group and owner of the popular station, in a press statement.
Hobbs, who was miraculously healed of two incurable autoimmune diseases at a prayer service in March 2017 and wrote a book about it titled God Did It, says God gave her the vision to host a prayer conference where others could receive healing, breakthrough and experience a supernatural move of God like she did.
“Last year, Dianna didn’t know which way God was taking her, but she had 50 women, plus the entire city of Buffalo and those outside of Buffalo, praying for her, and that day—March 26, 2017—they saw her healed,” recalls Brown.
Now Hobbs is praying to see others get miracles too.
Activate 2018 Regional Prayer and Worship Conference is a totally free two-day gathering, with Saturday day sessions and general evening worship services.
Aside from chart-topping worship leader Maranda Curtis, other guests include: Dr. Shaun Saunders of New Jersey; Pastor Cassandra Elliott of North Carolina; Prophetess Alicia Tucker of Buffalo, NY; Serena Young of Rochester, NY; Malcolm F. Wilson and Joshua’s Generation of Niagara Falls, NY; Minister Rhonda Smith of Detroit, MI; Minister Wynetta Hall-McElveen of Buffalo, NY; the ACTIVATE worship team led by Kary Dobbs; and other speakers and presenters.
Conference registrants will receive exciting prizes, giveaways, swag bags, tees, and a chance to win $965 from Power 96.5 FM/MIX 1080.
“Dianna Hobbs and her team have put together an amazing conference,” added Brown.
In a statement of her own, Hobbs, Founder of Empowering Everyday Women Ministries, Inc., said, “We are grateful and excited that a historic station and major power player like Power 96.5 FM/MIX 1080 sees the value of getting behind this great gathering. This partnership will add even greater visibility, resources and opportunities to spread the word about God’s healing power.”
Hobbs continued, “Often, there is a disconnect between faith-focused organizations and the general public, but our media sponsor is helping us more effectively bridge the gap. I think this is a great partnership because both our organizations are committed to bringing people together to receive inspiration, encouragement, motivation, empowerment, and healing in every area.”
From 10:00am-12:00pm on June 23rd, there will be sessions on mental health, physical health, and healing worship to cover both the practical and spiritual aspects of wholeness.
On Saturday all events will take place at Elim Christian Fellowship Church in Buffalo, NY at 70 Chalmers Place, 14214. Evening worship starts promptly at 7 pm.
On Sunday, an impartation service will be held at Covenant of Grace Fellowship International at 6 pm, 2351 Whirlpool St., Niagara Falls, NY 14305. This is the very site where Hobbs was healed.
Doors open each night an hour in advance.
