Growing Nigerian Congregations
Albert in Nigeria
The year 2022 has been a year of amazing church growth in Kaduna Nigeria. The church auditorium expansion project was started earlier this year and then another expansion project was carried out several months later to accommodate the growing congregation. A revival is certainly going on with people traveling from outside Kaduna to come worship. More than 120 people have given their lives to Christ in the first half of this year. The Church has grown from 200 to over 400 people and the building can no longer accommodate them. Worshipers are sitting outside in overflow, make-shift canopies during worship.
The village churches in Kebbi and Niger states in North Western Nigeria are thriving. Recently our team visited the field to teach the local church leaders, deliver the motor bikes to the Pastors that were purchased for them by H.I.M., as well as distributed clothes and shoes to the villagers. These villages have been neglected by the government and are regularly persecuted. Since they chose to become Christians, their communities have no clean water, accessible roads, electricity, or schools provided by the government. The church is now helping the village children with a school in the church.
