Emblaze Ministries in Nigeria

Emblaze Ministries has been exploring expansion into the country of Nigeria.  Nigeria is a country know for civil rights violations, but religion is deeply valued in both families and society at large.  According to a 2019 survey, the number of practicing Muslims is approximately equal to the number of 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.
