In 1850, Brother Bowen
headed for Central Africa on a Missionary adventure;
specifically to the town of Igboho. This is the faithful and
humble beginning which has undoubtedly given rise to great
achievements in what is today called, The Nigerian Baptist
Convention; with over 10, 000 Churches, 437 Associations, 32
Conferences and about 6 million Nigerian Baptists. In the same
vein, the obedient decision of the messengers at the fortieth
session of the Nigerian Baptist Convention at Jos in 1953
resulted in what up to April 1998 was known as Home and Foreign
Mission Department of the Nigerian Baptist Convention.
At the 85th Annual Session
of the Nigerian Baptist Convention in the same Jos, in 1998, a
decision was taken; to grant the Home and Foreign Missions Board
autonomy and to give it a new name: Global Missions Board, the
Mission agency of the Nigerian Baptist Convention. This decision
has enabled and has resulted in the present growth of the
Nigerian Baptist Convention mission work with 25 Home Mission
fields and 8 International Mission fields, in Africa and beyond.
There are about 35 frontier Missionary couples fully engaged and
faithfully serving God to reach many for Him.
The Board is run under the leadership of a Board chairman, a
secretary who is the Director of the Board, and able Board
members representing various departments in the Convention.
The service arm of the Board is divided into ministries with a
coordinator responsible to the Director.
1. To awaken
Baptist family members to their responsibility of spreading the
gospel message in Nigeria and beyond.
2. To direct the energy of the Convention towards propagating
the gospel at home and abroad.
3. To recommend ways and means of financing the Nigerian
Baptist Convention Mission enterprise.
4. To recruit and deploy suitable volunteers for mission work
in co-operation with the Ministerial Board of the Nigerian Baptist
