The Joshua Project  currently lists 544 people groups in Nigeria. Of those, 79 are considered unreached, with a total population of over 53 million. The largest of these groups are the Hausa and Fulani, with a combined population of around 40 million.

SIM Nigeria reaches out to these groups in two ways:

  • Supporting the work of indigenous (Nigerian) missionaries among unreached people groups.
  • Working directly with these groups ourselves.
  •  Through relief aid

This is a unique ministry to a unique and special people with small but mighty results.  The Fulani are the world’s largest nomadic ethnic empire, caught in the crosswinds of nations and civilizations. 

[expand title="read more" swaptitle="read less"] Over 20 million people desperate for change, needing a relationship with Christ.  Through Christ lives are redeemed, suffering released from its prey, and God is exalted.  But for this to happen people are needed to go, to minister to the Fulani, to demonstrate the love of Christ

In Nigeria we connect by meeting them where they are and doing as Christ would do.  Generally it’s a whole mix.  Visitation with them, helping them navigate in the modern world, providing resources to avert humanitarian disaster (medications, literacy, progressive animal husbandry, counsel,) and friendship.  We do not ignore the dangers of this work.  We also network with Pastors who introduce new believers to us. Many have great needs as persecution is extreme.  It is difficult, exhausting, and Satan is truly, visibly, against us.

It is our work to partner with donors in continuing this task of taking Goodness to these people, in light of God’s mercy, in spite of these challenges.  We SEEK, DISCIPLE, And MULTIPLY to any who come, and especially Fulani. This is an invitation to be a part of the Lord’s team in this. [/expand]

Local Missions

The City Ministries Missions Unit supports the work of Nigerian missionaries.  We currently help EMS missionaries’ church plant and establish their ministries through the use of general, medical and Challenge Cinema evangelistic film outreaches.

Additionally, CME has permanent Mission Teams in several cities & brings in several short-term Mission Teams to support the work as well. (Annually = 500+ evangelistic film outreaches, train 2,000+ on follow-up, part of 100+ church plants) [/expand]
