On November 13, 2015 Throne of Grace hosted their “In His Presence” concert at the WFCU Centre in Windsor. Over 3,000 tickets were picked up for this free event, which made Pam Handsor, a member of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG; 1767 Northway Avenue, Windsor) one extremely happy organizer!

The following day, this committee shot was taken since all members were of course too busy to pose for us during the actual event. From left are: Maxwell Aruakpor, Pam Handsor, Tolu Ogunsanwo, Pastor Carlene Owusu, Linda Williams and Pastor Victor Hambolu. Congrats to all for a job well done!
