October 31, 1517, marks the beginning of the Protestant Reformation when Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints Church (Castle Church) in Wittenberg, Germany. Five hundred years later, the International Pentecostal Holiness Church will join with pastors and leaders from around the world at The Wittenberg Congress to commemorate this historic event in the life of the church.
The Wittenberg Congress, hosted by the Global Church Network (Billion Soul Network), is a unique global gathering of over 700 Christian leaders. The summit will convene at the Maritim Hotel Berlin for the first five sessions and on November 1, 2017, the closing session will be held at the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Attendees will hear presentations from over 30 featured speakers including Dr. James O. Davis, Dr. A.D. Beacham, Jr., Dr. Glenn Burris, Dr. Kenneth Ulmer, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, and Dr. Leonard Sweet. The main focus of this historic gathering is to realign to the Word of God, reaffirm the body of Christ, and recommit to the Great Commission.
“It was on November 1, 1517, when people arrived at the church for All Saints’ Day, that the 95 Theses were first read and contemplated by the public,” said Dr. James O. Davis, founder/president of the Global Church Network. “It’s fitting that the last day of our Congress will take place at Castle Church on the 500th anniversary of the first day of the Protestant Reformation.”
