AFM Nigeria Feature

Tad de Bordenave, Bishop Nathan Inyom, and Chris Royer

A Brief History

AFM Nigeria was founded through the ministry of Rev. Canon Tad de Bordenave, founder and first Executive Director of AFM.  Tad first met Bishop Nathan Inyom of the Diocese of Makurdi (Benue State), Nigeria at the 1998 Lambeth Conference.

In 2000, Tad visited Nigeria for the first time upon Bishop Inyom’s invitation. During this visit, he met with the former Primate of ALL Nigeria, Most. Rev. Peter Akinola, Rt. Rev. George Bako, Rt. Rev. William Diya, etc. He also visited many other places of interest to explore the possibility of working with the Church of Nigeria in order to expand the scope of the frontier missions in Nigeria.  It was at this time that AFM Nigeria was born.  Today, Tad is canonically resident in the Province of Nigeria and is a Canon in the Diocese of Makurdi.

The Focus of AFM Nigeria

AFM Nigeria has adopted the Baka Pygmies of Eastern Cameroon.  For years, AFM Nigeria has praying, advocating, networking, and reaching out to the Baka Pygmies to see a church planting movement established among them. The present plan of AFM Nigeria is to carry out Strategic Mission Training and  Discipleship/Church Planting Movement Training, not only for the Baka Pygmies but also for other unreached people groups on the African continent in the regions of Central and West African (Gabon, Togo, Zaire, etc.).
