SOWERS is a group of passionate Christians drawn together (from diverse denominations) with a passion to see the kingdom of the Lord Jesus and our dear Father established on earth. Our Hearts are filled with deep-rooted compassion for the lost souls in our nations and we continuously give ourselves to the course of librating them from the gross darkness and deprivation that has enslaved them for several ages. Through the immense support of our dear partner, The Holy Spirit, we are making good progress in the calling, Sowers has reached over 27 tribes in 6 nations in 10 years and has chapters in over 20 chapters in 5 nations.
SOWERS started in 2001 in the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) when a group of young students under the mentorship of Dr. Dan Ozioko began staying back during semester holidays and breaks to take the gospel to the unreached communities within the senatorial district using pantomimes and creative ministrations as medium of communication. They were known as Sowers Theatre. Many wondrous works were wrought by the Holy Spirit through their sacrificial ministry and through successive generations of Sowers Theatre in UNN and the continues involvement of the alumni in the ministry, the mission group has continued to grow in impact and reach even beyond Nigeria.
Sowers Leadership structure includes Chapter Executives, Field/ Zonal Executives, The National Executive Committee (made up of all past/ serving Chapter, Field, Zonal & Central Executives) – the NEC only meets quarterly and provides the framework for the operations of the general body.
