Since 1954, Christian Leadership Courses were held each year to build up Christian Students in Northern Nigeria in the Christian faith, and to show them the need for, and the responsibilities of Christian leaders. The officers and participants on these courses were drawn from many denominations and persuasions, yet they enjoyed a wonderful experience of unity in Jesus Christ.At the close of the 1956 course, the participants felt led by the Holy Spirit to attempt to form a Christian student organization in Northern Nigeria, which could continue with one name and identity in this God-given vision and unity, the work of evangelizing and discipling students, and hosting the Leadership Courses throughout the year. The intention was that, the new organization would not be linked with any existing organization, so that Christians with different affiliations would feel free to take part in the work.
To be a well-developed and equipped Organization, with stable and adequate resources for Wholistic Ministry among young people and families, leading to a godly society.
To promote the transformation of lives of children, students, and other youths, through evangelism, discipleship and family life development.
