The 6,052 graduands from the Redeemed Christian Bible College (RCBC) were inaugurated on Monday August 7, 2023 which signalled the commencement of the 71st Annual Convention of the mission with the theme: “Beyond Expectations.”

Full Pastors numbering 896, who will be ordained at the twilight of the one-week programme, are still in seclusion where they are undergoing spiritual rejuvenation.
