KAMPALA – Pastor Bobbie Houston, wife of Pastor Brian Houston with-whom they founded Hillsong Church located in 21 countries and on five continents is set to speak at Watoto Church Downtown on Friday, 28 September 2018.
Pastor Bobbie will be gracing the annual ‘Watoto Sisterhood’ gathering which seeks to among others empower girls and women to overcome barriers to realised potential in order to positively influence the future generation.
Bobbie Houston co-founded Hillsong Church in Australia with her husband Brian Houston in 1983. She currently serves alongside Brian as Co-Senior Pastor of Hillsong and oversees the organization’s women’s ministries, including Colour Conference and Hillsong Sisterhood.
Last year, the gathering was front-lined by Watoto Ministries founder, Marilyn Skinner who used her sermon to highlight the importance of having faith in Jesus and how spending time in His presence changes everything.
According to the official biography, Pastor Bobbie Houston, 61, is passionate about seeing all people find Jesus as their Saviour, gain a revelation of their value in Him and rise up to make a stand for justice on the earth.
She has a prophetic teaching gift, and has redefined the face of ‘women’s ministry,’ raising up a strong and capable company of women through a local Hillsong Sisterhood, global Colour Sisterhood and flourishing annual Colour Conferences that take place across five nations.
Media reports show that each week, Hillsong’s music is sung by an estimated 50 million people in 60 languages, and Houston’s sermons are broadcast around the globe. In June 2016, Hillsong launched a global, 24-hour channel in partnership with Trinity Broadcasting Network, providing access to the worship and ministry to millions of viewers around the world.
