And on October 12 this year, the program will celebrate its 35th year of broadcast through a special program, featuring the largest gospel choir of the Members Church of God International (MCGI).

This year, its theme’s tagline is “Truth. Charity. Praise.”

Organizers of the special anniversary presentation said the choristers will fill the lower and upper-level boxes of the Smart-Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City. There are expected 15,000 choristers to particiapte.

The 2,000-seat center area of the Big Dome, meanwhile, will be alloted for the special guests of that evening – the persons with disabilities or PWDs. Bro. Eli Soriano, the program host and Overall Servant of MCGI, wants the PWDs to occupy the center area and accommodate them with earnest care.

In MCGI, the PWDs are called very important persons (VIPs) and given higher regard. These VIPs receive the frontrow seats at the ADD Convention Centers whenever there are gatherings and congregational services.

Bro. Eli has taught the congregants of the Church of God and always reiterate that PWDs should be acknowledged, respected and treated not as nuisssance of society.

Along with the expected 13,000-strong ADD Chorale to perform at the Smart-Araneta, choristers from North America, Australia, Central and South America, United Kingdom, Asia-Oceania, and from different provinces in the country are expected to join from their respective areas.

To ensure the seamless presentation of the chorale numbers as well as other content of the special program on Monday, satellite and live video streaming will be used to aid the special anniversary program.

Other notable anniversary activities of Ang Dating Daan include mobilising the largest numbers of tree-planting participants, largest participants in a breastfeeding drive, coastal cleanups, feeding programs, mass blood drives, and more.

For this year, the largest gospel choir is the Ang Dating Daan group’s official bid to break world records in the “Largest Gospel Choir” category.
