The Experience Lagos
‘The Experience’, acclaimed for being the biggest of its kind, is a free all-night Gospel concert with exceptional gospel music featuring some of the most celebrated recording artistes of our time. This one-of-a-kind event was birthed by the Senior Pastor of The House on The Rock, Paul Adefarasin.
Now in its 14th iteration, ‘The Experience’, which debuted on Friday, December 1, 2006, has since been nominated for several awards including the Concert Of The Year (AMEN Awards) – 2007 and the Award For Event Shows / Programmes Of The Year (APPOEMN) – 2017 among others.
This year, The Experience was awarded ‘The Corporate Event Of The Year’ by Most Influential People of African Descent [MIPAD] and The Event Of Excellence Award by African Gospel Music and Media Awards (AGMMA) among others.
With several hundreds of thousands of people in attendance from all over the globe, ‘The Experience’ Lagos lives up to its stellar reputation as the largest gospel concert held in Africa and arguably, the world.

The event will feature award-winning artistes such as Travis Greene, Sinach, Nathaniel Bassey, Don Moen, Donnie McClurkin, Tope Alabi, Planetshakers, Chioma Jesus, Eben, Onos, Sammie Okposo and many others including several newcomers to ‘The Experience’ stage namely Todd Dulaney, Mercy Chinwo and Preye Odede.
It was really a great experience for me. I went there with a severe ulcer pain even with the pain I managed to go. I danced and praised God, my father. Since after the programme I have not experienced the pain again. How it vanished, I can't say. God is really awesome.
I used to have serious pains in the right hand side of my shoulder. I attended The Experience with expectations, one of which was to get healed. God did it for me. Since Friday night after The Experience till now, no more pains, no more discomfort, no more groaning. God did it. He healed me.
The Lord opened doors that I have been knocking for years and He gave me unmerited favour. Glory to HIS name.
I thank God for the experience. Like I read somewhere, if you are not a Christian in this generation you are missing out. God bless the body of Christ. The church will match forward. God bless Pastor Paul, God bless HOTR crew!!!
I appreciate and celebrate my Senior Pastor, Pastor Paul Adefarasin. On our way coming to the programme, our bus almost had an accident. The front tyre got punctured but I thank God for his grace on the driver. God worked mightily through him even though he stepped on the brake, he quickly took off his foot from it and was able to park successfully. I know God was involved and give Him Alone all the praise.
The Experience 2017 was my first time of attending, and to the glory of God, I was blessed beyond words and expressions. Help just came from everywhere for me. Thank you Abba Father. I also want to appreciate Pastor Paul. God will continue to uphold you in Jesus mighty name.
