The Christian Center for Discipleship and Mission (CCDM) is a Muslim Background Believer (MMB) discipleship center and missionary training base.
What does CCDM do specifically?
It is located in Jos, Nigeria, just south of the northern states, which are Muslim strong holds and are governed by the Sharia law of Islam.
1) The missionaries to the north risk their lives every day to be a light for Jesus in a very hostile region of the world. Over half of the Christian martyrs in the last several years gave their lives for Jesus in this part of the world. Pray for their safety and their willingness to live Jesus even in death.
2) The Fulani herdsmen, who often carry out the evil of Islamic jihadists, live in the midst of those whom they have persecuted, martyred, and caused great physical and financial ruin. Pray that the pastors and churches can evidence hearts of forgiveness and that hatred and bitterness would be crushed by the power of the resurrection.
3) The CCDM campus is growing, which makes it an increasingly attractive target for persecution and destruction. Pray for the safety of the people and the buildings.
4) An educational center is now being constructed. Pray for the remainder of the funds and the quick construction of this building so that it can be useful in the coming year.
5) Pray for Shaba and his family that the evil one would not in any way inhibit their steadfastness and faithfulness in living for the Lord.
6) Pray for ongoing training seminars that the missionaries would be able to travel freely/safely and receive the instruction they need to be effective ministers of the gospel.
