REPORT OF THE 2020 WBS GREAT WORKSHOP, Part 1
The WBS Great workshop is a spiritual workshop that gathers over 600 preachers and World Bible School follow-up workers for capacity building in one location for a period of four days. This workshop has been held for the past 30 years in different locations in the country especially in the southern part of Nigeria.
I have been directing the workshop since 2015 and to the glory of God, the 2020 Great Workshop was held in Abuja, the federal capital of Nigeria. The workshop featured 7 keynote presentations around the theme of “fixing the missing link” had over 600 participants in attendance, 5 observers from denominations who are studying very close with us and 22 out of 36 states had their preachers in attendance.

The World Bible School office in Texas honoured four outstanding evangelists in Nigeria whom they noted have contributed significantly to the growth of the church through the coordination of World Bible School programs across the length and breadth of Nigeria. These men include Dr. Monday John Akpakpan, Sylvester Imogoh, Dr. P. S. Egure and Makinde Olufemi.

During the workshop, 4 hours was devoted to evangelism and open air preaching which was done by Moses Obakemi moderating and Osita Onuora preaching. The Nigerian Gospel chariot was at hand to serve the purpose. Tracts from the host congregation and from Sylvester Imogoh Tract ministry were shared all over the place during evangelism. A team of WBS follow up workers stormed a school and enrolled over 500 students into World Bible School for correspondence course. The president of Africa Christian Schools Foundation and visiting missionary to Nigeria, Chad Wagner, participated in the workshop. The next year’s Great workshop is scheduled to hold in Lagos, Lord willing. The deputy majority Leader of the House of Representatives ofNigeria, Rt. Hon. Peter Akpatason gave a goodwill message to participants where he clearly gave a testimony of the power of God upon his life. Dr. Solomon Owude – a medical practitioner took out time to give a health talk to participants especially about men’s health. Each participant was given a copy of the workshop book that contained past editions in one volume. It ended well as all participants got home safely.
God bless you. Mike Udam, Workshop Director
