The Nigeria Christian Corpers’ Fellowship came to existence in fulfillment of a prophesy given some years ago by Pa. S.G. Elton, a notable British Missionary. The prophesy sounded like this: “a time is coming when the Nigerian government would be paying the Nigerian Youth to preach the gospel in all nooks and crannies of the country”.
Sounds farfetched? Well the evidence of NCCF today proves that the prophesy is being fulfilled, starting from 1973 at the inception of the “National Youth Service Corps” scheme. Corpers who shared similar Christian’s beliefs started meeting in orientation camps all over the country. Unknown to one another, they met for fellowship in their various orientation camps all over Nigeria, they preached to their colleagues in their various orientation camps all over Nigeria, Consequently, they were fulfilling a divine prophesy that came through the lip of an old sagePa S G Elton long before their fathers and mothers were born.
Divine providence then brought them together, and led them to adopt the name by which we are now known: The Nigeria Christian Corpers’ Fellowship. We refer to ourselves as “Jesus Corpers” and you need no angel to prove to you that God still has Nigeria in His agenda, because no country in the world has a scheme so well thought like NYSC scheme; not to talk of NCCF! Cutting across tribes, beliefs, races and geographical boundaries; uniting the Nation, healing wounds, restoring national character, giving hope to millions and giving the leaders of tomorrow large minds to achieve all they can on a global scale.
The Nigeria Christian Corpers’ Fellowship is a body of Christian corps members who are dedicated and committed to serving God and humanity within their mandatory service year.
WE ARE UNITED (ONE)
The fellowship is all accommodating as it makes room for all Christian Corpers who are genuinely saved by the reason of the washing of the blood of Jesus Christ and have a focused relationship with God, irrespective of their gender, tribe, church affiliation and the like.
ALL OVER NIGERIA (BIG)
The fellowship has functional secretariats in all the 36 State of the Federation including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. It is from these secretariats that the activities within each state are being coordinated. Also in a bid to ensure proper spread and effective coordination, the state chapters also have zones and sub-zones under them. Anywhere Christian Corpers are found, you are sure to find NCCF. We operate even in remote places. In fact, all local government is within our reach. There has been no mountain too high or valley too low for us to cross.
For the purpose of harmony and national coordination, NCCF also has a National dimension. Our National Headquarter is located in Jos, Plateau State. We have our national conference every year in Jos, Plateau State.
LOVED BY OUR PARENTS (FAMILY)
The fellowship at the state level maintains a Board of Patrons, who plays an advisory role to the fellowship at that level and at the national level, a board of Trustee – a group of highly respected people in the country who have a close relationship with God. The patrons for Osun State Are Dr. Samuel Oginni (Chairman), Barrister AyodeleLoagun (Secretary); who is also the secretary, Rev. YemiOyeleye, Rev Dr. Francis Falola, Rev. Dr. Mike Oye. These are the risk bearer of the fellowship; who have passed through this platform and who are committed to the growth and development of the fellowship.
