Hinn’s in!

high note


Reverend Benny Hinn is finally here! The controversial American televangelist, who will be conducting two nights of crusade services at the Wildey Gymnasium, beginning tomorrow, had been the subject of publicly expressed misgivings by some church leaders in Barbados, including the head of the Barbados Christian Council, Monsignor Vincent Blackett, and the Emmanuel Baptist Church pastor Reverend Vincent Wood.

Another church leader, Reverend Patrick Tannis, of The Church In Barbados, recently posted a message on his Facebook that read: “I want to clear up any misconceptions out there. I personally have absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming Benny Hinn crusade. Plain and simple.”

High Note was reliably informed Reverend Hinn would be meeting tonight at Hilton Barbados with pastors and partners of the crusade. A media briefing for reporters and photographers covering the crusade was postponed at the last minute, having been scheduled to take place at The Gymnasium at 4 p.m. yesterday. The notice, in the name of Harry Mayers, on behalf of the organizers the National Alliance Of Churches And Church Organizations, stated that a new time and date would be announced.

Up to the time of publication, Barbados TODAY had not been informed of any new date.

An official of The Gymnasium told High Note those attending the crusade would be allowed inside the facility on a first-come-first-served basis. The official explained that those who were not able to get inside would be able to watch the proceedings from big screens on the outside.

We’ve been told the doors will be open from 3 p.m. and the event will run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

In other happenings, follow one of Barbados’ most sought after recording female artists on Sunday. That’s when Neesha, known for her big hit Adrenaline, will perform at the Sanctuary Empowerment Centre in Country Road, St Michael, at a 10 a.m. youth event.

Recently, Christians of all ages and complexions took over The City of Bridgetown as part of Jesus Day celebrations. One of the aspects of the occasion was a major worship concert in Independence Square. That event saw the reunion of the famous musical Leacock family, that included James Leacock, Stephen Leacock and Jan Gibson.

And those of you who are fans of calypso with a Christian twist, should head to The Plantation Garden Theatre on Wednesday, June 25, for the opening salvos of The Experience calypso tent. That tent will pitch from 7:30 p.m.

Judging night is Friday, June 27, also at 7:30 at the same venue.

I’m outta here. Blessings!

    Gregston the people need to be thought that the healing and intervention they need is within their reach through prayer and intercession. God is our God not the God of Hinn or any other pastor. Each of us can invoke his protection, healing and guidance at anytime, but we have been led to believe we are powerless without Pastors who are men and women just like the rest of us

      Ha ha. On another note I always wonder how much leaves the island for drugs. This does not mean I think we should ok growing it locally or usage of it as it destroys a society and drains the economy.

    Yes…somebody gets it! Right you are Mr. Rawle Spooner.
    How is it that these same preachers have ailments themselves but claim they have the power to heal or that God works through them to heal but yet they aren’t healed of their ailments.

    As the word says…Many… will come in Jesus name.

    becareful Bajans…watch,pray and prepare.

    The Lord himself said “beware of false prophets”. This is utter nonsense. I sincerely hope that the economy is wayyyy much better and all suffering, murders, etc will be over in this little paradise AFTER we have been prayed on, upon and for by Mr. Hinn.
