The economic hardships in Nigeria adversely affect pastors or missionaries. Their congregations are unable to support them. And Christian workers might not have the skills to support themselves and their families.
With this in mind, Dennis & Coletta Shelly at ECWA Theological Seminary, Kagoro, Nigeria have been promoting Skills Acquisition classes. The over 500 students are able to gain hands-on experience in different skills, such as tailoring, sewing, plumbing, welding, raising catfish, poultry and rabbits, computer studies, photography/video production, shoe making, and producing household cleaners and food like cocoa mix. They now have a brand new two-story Skills Acquisition Center building.
