Upcoming Events:

A Seminar incorporating a Book Project is planned for October, 2015.
We intend to sell a range of books about Islam, written from a Christian perspective by Christian Islamic scholars. Christian leaders from Kaduna and Kwoi diocese will attend the Seminar.
It is intended to encourage Christians to read those things Muslims never teach or tell Christians about Islam.
This will demand a significant amount of money, since the books will need to be subsidized to be affordable.

Three communities are asking Passion to hold a community crusade in December, 2015. This is a very important outreach for Passion. The result of the three year community crusades held in Makarau, Rev. Ibrahim’s home village, is evident and welcome.

Seminars continue

This photo was taken after a Seminar held on 27th June.  The participants were from a community living in Narayi. Parents were instructed in how to use familiar Bible stories, such as the Slave girl in the Na’aman story, to teach their children to reach out to Muslim children.

This Seminar, organised by Passion, was held on July 25 in The Church of Advent Bayan Dutse, Narayi.
The aim was to encourage christian young people to potentially become missionaries to the Muslims.

Triumphant Youths Seminar






Triumphant Youths Foundation Seminar was held in mid-February in Kaduna.  It was led by the founder, Yusuf Ibrahim Gombe, a former Muslim from the Royal family of Gombe. He relocated to Kaduna for safety reasons.  He is now married to a christian wife and has a family.

Rev. Ibrahim has ministered to Yusuf. The seminar was also held at The Church of Advent, Bayan Dutse, Narayi, Kaduna..

Upcoming Events

A Seminar for Singles is planned for 14th March. Discussions will centre around how a Biblical sound moral life can help in reaching Muslim youths. The Seminar will be targeted at students from a secondary (High school) in Barnawa that has both Muslim and Christian students studying in the same classes.

Another Training Seminar is to be held for the group of 27 christians who recently agreed to participate in mission outreach to neighbouring Muslims.  Pray that they will be bold and courageous in their efforts to share the good news of the gospel..

Encouraging Seminar







Passion held a Seminar on 26th November, 2014 in an Anglican Church in Kaduna town. The seminar content was an adapted teaching delivered by Ruth Veltkamp to ECWA* Pastors in Fadan Kagoma on ‘The world sign’. It is contextualized in the light of the Boko Haram. It emphasises the sign God desires us to see.

At the end of this Seminar, 27 people made a commitment to become involved in Muslim mission. However, they requested further training.

A book titled, “Glad News: God loves you my Muslim friend” by Samy Tanagho was made available to participants at a subsidised price. This was made possible through a donation received from Voice of the Martyrs Australia.

Passion Seminars fulfill a great unmet need in Nigeria






Pictured above are some of the pastors who attended a recent Passion Seminar in Abuja, the federal capital of Nigeria.

Over 25 different denominations under the umbrella body of the Pentecostal Fellowship (PFN) of Nigeria attended the Seminar.  They all came from Abuja Municipal and two local Government areas of Nasarawa state that shares a boundary with Abuja.

Ruth Veltkamp, in the purple dress, was a guest speaker at the Seminar.  She currently lives in Michigan, USA.  She had served in Northern Nigeria for over forty years as a missionary.  With her wealth of experience, she spoke on: “Forgiveness as God intended it; a tool for Muslim Evangelism in Northern Nigeria” and “Challenges of Muslim evangelism in Northern Nigeria”

Rev. Ibrahim’s topics included “Christianity and the global Islamic agenda”, “Holistic Discipleship of Muslim Background Believers” and “The History of Christian-Muslim relations and our salvation.”
The next training Seminar will be held in Zonkwa in early January, 2014.


Passion holds 2 day Seminar

After several planning meetings in Zonkwa, Passion held a first-of-its-kind Seminar on the 28th & 29th of August, 2013 at St. Andrew’s Anglican Cathedral, Zonkwa. The Seminar was attended by church leaders of almost every denomination in Zangon Kataf Local Government including the Bishops of Zonkwa and Kwoi Anglican Dioceses.

Topics presented included:
1) Forgiveness as God intended it: a tool for evangelism in Northern Nigeria.
2) Christian should love Muslims.
3) History of Christian–Muslim relation and faith building.
4) Holistic discipleship of Muslim background believers.
Thirteen Pastors/church leaders renewed their commitment to focus on Muslim mission.

The response to this initiative by Passion is very encouraging.  The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Zongon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna state, Nigeria with the representatives of the various denominations in Zonkwa, the Local Government Headquarters of Zangon Kataf L.G.A. resolved that:

1) Seminar DVDs should be sent to all community leaders.
2) A separate seminar should be organized for all community leaders on the same topics.
3) Such seminars should be held twice a year in view of their significance.

Representatives of the leadership of the Pentecostal Churches Fellowship in Nigeria (PFN) Asoh, Abuja chapter attended the Seminar and also resolved that such a Seminar be held in Asoh, Abuja for all church leaders of the PFN on 27th and 28th September, 2013.
