EZRA is a triennial-one-week-program discipleship and engagement training.
The theme of EZRA is derived from Ezra 7:10 Studying, Practicing, and teaching the word of God.
The first EZRA Conference was held in the year 1989 which had less than 200 delegates participating. The Conference grew to an attendance of 600 between 2000 and 2013. The last Conference held in 2016 attracted over 2300 delegates. The next EZRA Conference shall be held in 2019.
Purpose of EZRA
To equip the delegates with the attitude, passion, and skills that will enable them to grow into effective students of God’s word. This effectiveness will be marked by consistent reading, thorough study, faithful application and effective proclamation of the word.
