Born of a diverse, multi-ethnic nation, Nosa breaks out of cultural norms to follow the calling of God, standing firm as a woman, a leader, and a beloved daughter of God. Africa now has a large number of evangelical Christians, and this is the time for Africa to take up the baton to mobilise workers into the field.
Nosa shares of many heart-moving testimonies on committed believers who had not wavered in the face of persecutions. Our African brothers and sisters encounter various challenges when professing their faith, priming them into a nation of resilience compared with their Western counterparts.
These stories of immense bravery speak of something important – that in every circumstances, God’s grace is sufficient for us. Nosa encourages the church to walk together despite our differences in age, gender, tongue and colour, recognising that each member adds a special value to the table.

MOBILIZING WOMEN FOR MISSIONS (Nosa Tukura)
We live in a kairos moment, a time where we have more educated, entrepreneurial and professional women than ever before. We have several young women studying in our institutions of higher learning in various fields including the hitherto designated 'male dominated fields'. Many women have proved their mettle in academia, science, medicine, engineering, arts, etc. Many have broken the proverbial 'glass ceiling' by becoming heads of institutions previously headed only by men.
