Welcome to the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa, where half of Nigeria’s population claims to follow the Christian faith.

Ministry Vision
Our overall goals in Nigeria are:

  • Evangelism
  • Ministry to human need
  • Discipleship
  • Partnering in mission

Our primary ministry partner is the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) but we also work with other denominational and interdenominational groups.

Current Ministry

  • Unreached people groups: We work in partnerships with indigenous organisations provide training in evangelism to people of other religions.
  • We educate churches, seminaries and denominations in youth outreach
  • We support the children’s ministry in ECWA’s Christian Education Department and recruit SIM personnel for this work.
  • We are involved in capacity building for Christian teachers and health workers.
  • We support the church in caring for the suffering and marginalised.
  • We train church leaders to be effective in their ministries
  • We provide good discipleship materials suited to different contexts.
  • We assist the church to recruit, train, and support Nigerian missionaries
  • We emphasise prayer as a priority for SIM missionaries
