Our Story:

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.

Our Responsibilities:

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 Convention.
