Web Missions Africa is focused on digital evangelical revolution for the church in the new millennium. Doing outreaches on the internet is our goal and winning souls through the cyber is our mandate. We achieve this
Bishops, Pastors, Evangelists, Missionaries, Bible Teachers, Theological students, Christian IT Practitioners and Lecturers, Church Webmasters, all Christian Leaders in CAN/PFN, Parents and Youth Leaders in Churches, Fellowships and Organizations; Technical/Media crew in churches.
The impact of the computer technology has fast grown far above the radio, television and print media areas of witnessing in recent times with several advantages. Internet Ministry and Cybermissions have been practiced since 1992 following the advent of the Internet. Today, as the knowledge and usage of the internet increases, this area of mission has equally increased especially in the western world. In 2006, the Webpulpit from Nigeria cued in and started pioneering the establishment of digital missions through the internet all over Africa. We believe that engaging with you using real life examples of effective ministry on the Internet will stir you up to appreciate the potentials of using the World Wide Web to evangelize. This will impact not only people on the other side of the continents, but also on people in your own community. To achieve this, we worked in collaboration with Salem University Lokoja to design an interactive practical course that trains Christian leaders and Ministers in the art of ministering online. The course is currently anchored by Bible Life School, an international school of Christian theology and ministry.

Special Reasons Why You Must Attend:
It was reported that 150,000 die every DAY, 107 every minute! With Online Ministry, 60 seconds is enough time to reach over 100 people with the gospel. God has given us the WWW as a “door of utterance” for the gospel (Colossians 4:3). Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the entire world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14). In the parable of the banquet he also said, “And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” (Luke 14:23). Digital Outreach is taking the gospel of the kingdom to the nations of the world through the highways and byways of the World Wide Web. Jesus said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). We are inviting you to come fishing with us on the World Wide Web. This is an invitation and opportunity for individuals and congregations to take the gospel to the nations. The nations include those who live in the community in which you live and worship and not just the Internet community. This training is to equip you utilize this call effectively.
