Nigeria

By faith we see:

  • More than 75 million Muslims and least-reached people in Nigeria responding in faith to the Gospel message, transforming communities as they find freedom in Christ.
  • Missionary teams in every state in the north, partnering with the Church to reach the Hausa, Fulani and Kanuri, where less than 10% of the people are Christians.
  • The Church in one of Africa’s most influential and populous countries strengthened and equipped to transform society at every level, making a major impact in world mission this century.

Communities where He is least known

People of the North

An estimated 28 million Hausa live in Nigeria, with tens of millions more Fulani and Kanuri, with the vast majority professing Islam. Many Muslims are afraid to consider Christianity because they fear persecution. Indigenous missionaries are working among these people; however, many have never heard the Gospel. Additional workers are needed to bring the gospel message to the north, participate in holistic ministries of compassion, and encourage Nigerian missionaries in their outreach efforts.

Youth

It is estimated that almost half of Nigeria’s population of 175 million is 14 years of age or younger. A vast number of the youth are non-Christians, and are affected by non-Christian messages of society. Many youth from Christian families aren’t attending any church; some who do are nominal Christians. The Nigerian church has begun to address this reality by teaching them to live godly lives in a rapidly changing world. Workers are needed to assist the Church in reaching this community through genuine relationships.
