Calvary Ministries (CAPRO), a missionary agency, was founded in April 25, 1975. The Last Days Gathering (LDG) was first held in Kufena College, Zaria, Kaduna State in1975; and has held yearly since. Like in past conferences, resource materials, accommodation, and feeding are free by organisers.
“The LDG conferences focuses on the signs of the end times to build up and prepare Christians for the task of urgent evangelisation. Unique eschatological teachings are given to help them apply their hearts on this serious matter. The emphasis on the soon coming of Christ was very strong at the time,” organisers said.
The theme for this year’s conference, which normally holds in the last days of the year into a new year, is “Confronting This Darkness”.
