128 Baptized at NCBC Lectureship

In August 2019, the Nigeria Christian Bible College (NCBC) held its annual lectureship at the campus. “Living beyond Vanities, a study of the Book of Ecclesiastes” was the theme of the Lectureship. We were fortunate that we had many visitors from all over Nigeria — as well as the United States. The ACSF President, Chad Wagner, along with Gary Roeder, preacher at the Austin Chapel Church of Christ, Sardis, TN, spoke at the lectureship. During the lectureship, there were 128 people baptized during the four-day lectureship.
