The Great Commission Movement of Nigeria (GCM Nigeria) was established in 1969 to help build spiritual movements everywhere, so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus.
It was a Campus Crusade for Christ which started in 1951 by Dr. Bill Bright at University of California, Los Angeles campus. In 1969 Rev. Yemi Ladipo brought the ministry to Nigeria and first settled in Lagos, focusing on University of Lagos.
The mission is to help fulfill the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to Christ, building disciples towards spiritual maturity, and sending people out to multiply this process in the lives of many others.
