Prospering in Persecution: Nigeria

Church planter, Victor Phillip, is determined to spread the gospel of Jesus to the people of war-torn Nigeria no matter the cost. 

As a young man, he has already seen great challenges in his life. The death of his father by the hands of Boko Haram sent the family reeling. In turn, Victor, along with his mother and siblings, migrated from the Boko-haram controlled war zone to a new city.

Yet, Victor’s life was forever changed when he attended a transformational Lead Like Jesus training in October 2016. When asked how it impacted his life, he says, “Before the training I had no courage, but afterward I have courage to do the work of God wholeheartedly.”
