Why Choose Nigeria as a Place for Cross-Cultural Christian Ministry?
Nigeria is the 8th largest country in the world and the largest in Africa and growing rapidly. “According to the United States Census Bureau, the population of Nigeria will reach 402 million by 2050. Nigeria will then be the 4th most populous country in the world” (Wikipedia).
Nigerians are strong leaders who are influential in Africa and around the world. Although it is said that almost half of the country are Christians, many are still bound by fear of the spirit-world and do not fully understand the power of God. Most of the other half of Nigerians are Muslims. Unfortunately, many Nigerian believers do not know how to share the Gospel with their Muslim neighbors effectively. One of the big needs for cross-cultural workers is supporting Nigerian Christians in this ministry.
