Emblaze Ministries has been exploring the expansion into the country of Nigeria. Nigeria is a country that has struggled with allegations of civil rights violations but religion has a strong part of the families and their faith. According to a 2019 survey, the Muslims are nearly equal in the populations as are Christians and Indigenous beliefs make-up 10 percent of the population.
Islam is primarily practiced in the northern part of the country and Christianity is primarily in the southern part. Islam was introduced into the country back in the 11th century and Christianity came to the region in the mid 19th century.
Resources are needed to identify and start the church planting process.
