Godly Revolution offers guidance for youth


“It is a trendy, contemporary gathering that is focused on the youth,” are the words with which Erich Posthumus, organizer of Godly Revolution, describes this event.

Godly Revolution took place at Gallagher Estate in Midrand from 2000 to 2009 and was resumed for the first time in 2022. The event will take place this year in Pretoria.

“More than 100,000 young people have already been reached through this event,” Poshumus tells RNews.

“It really is a praise and worship marathon that lasts for four hours. It is an evening that proves to young people that Christians are not small and few and there is hope, because God is on their side.

“Throughout history, God has used young people to achieve wonderful things through them.”

Posthumus himself has a great passion for youth and encourages parents to seize this chance for their children.

“It’s a very unique evening as it is aimed at the youth. There are eight different artists and musical groups performing in a wide variety of genres. The genres, such as rock and hip-hop, reach the young people on a different level as they can resonate with the music and messages that are shared with them.”

DJ Maeztro, Youth Fest Band, Arnold de Wet, Fusion Band, One Crown, 180 Band and Jaid River will perform during the event.

Posthumus adds that their team realized that many young people receive their calling on a night like Godly Revolution.

“We have experienced that young people often choose a youth group in their area after the event and join it.”

Posthumus reassures parents by mentioning that children will not be exposed to strange habits.

The event has an evangelical touch with the strongest motivation to reach young people’s hearts so that they can start walking a path with the Lord.

“No specific dogma is followed or preached. We only focus on reaching young people’s hearts.”

Young people between the ages of 13 and 23 are encouraged to join the event. Parents are also welcome to book tickets, specifically for gallery seating. The event will be held on 14 June at the Living Word Church Brummeria in Pretoria.

Food stalls will open already at 14:00. The commendation event will be held in the main auditorium from 17:00 to 21:00.

Between 15:00 and 16:00 a free training session in counseling is offered to youth workers, youth ministers, youth leaders and all interested parties. The training session will focus on anxiety and depression among young people and how to approach these heavy topics.

The event is presented with a view to Youth Month, and Tshwane’s mayor, Cilliers Brink, will have a speaking turn during the event where he wants to convey a message of hope to the young people.

No one has to worry about security and parking.

“We have two teams that will help regulate the safe and comfortable movement of large groups of people. There is easy, safe parking, and the venue is wheelchair friendly.”
