RURCON Celebrates 50th Anniversary 

The Rural Development Counsellors for Christian Churches in Africa (RURCON) celebrates her 50th years development and impacting missionary work in Nigeria and Africa. 

The anniversary celebration that started from Jos in September with the theme, “People Development and National Transformation – RURCON’S Contribution” will have her Lagos celebration between Friday 22 and Sunday 24 October, 2021 with courtesy visit to key Church leaders, Conference/Prayers at WATS, Gala Exhibitions/Lunch and Thanksgiving Services in some participating Churches.

RURCON established in 1971 by Mr. Peter Batchelor and Da Barnaba Dusu, is a Pan-African network built with the vision to help and see African Church transformed as God intends, seeking to transform communities by supporting African churches in holistic development through training, courses, seminars, workshops and counselling.

It has over the years worked in 36 African countries and gained international recognition in Christian Development Education and as a Development Agency that assist Churches, Christian organisations and individuals including communities. 

It is not a Funding Agency, but an Enabling Organisation that believes in self-reliance, sustainable Lifestyles and Livelihoods based on good Christian Stewardship focusing on the poor.

With her faith-based partners RURCON have intervened in developmental projects across Africa in the last 50 years and in partnership with CAN, CNN, PFN, RURCON will identify and select faith- based organisations in Lagos to work with.

RURCON will also use the celebration to promote acceptance and implementation, the globally acknowledged “Church and Community Mobilisation Process” (CCMP).
