“This year marks our third annual conference,” says Damien Sneed, founder of The Levites’ Gathering. “The inaugural conference was held in Detroit, followed by Washington, DC. Each year The Levites’ Gathering has grown exponentially. “We are delighted that the conference will be held in New York City because it’s known as a city for the arts.”
Sneed believes that “Embracing The Prophetic—1 Corinthians 14:1” “Speaks to the fact that we all can benefit from a sure and direct Word from God about our lives, our situations and our future. This gathering has been designed for every person attending to receive direction and spiritual impartation to help bring them to fulfill their individual callings and successfully arrive at their God-given destinations in life.”
