These and many more will be issues discussed at the event.

Najia Christian is an online platform predominantly on the Social Media to encourage, edify, exhort and comfort believers. With the Worldwide Web as our mission field, we believe we can reach out to the world backed up firstly by God and then our biblical mandate which instructs us to preach the gospel of Christ. Mark 16:15. Also, with the aim of bringing God online to the consciousness of the people, we act as a voice for the body of Christ on the Nigerian Social media space and beyond. We want a desired change for our nation Nigeria and as Christians, we should be up front causing a revolution that God himself will be proud of. It takes you and us to create the desired change in Nigeria.
