SPAC nation comes to Nigeria
SPAC Nation is a vibrant, dynamic church made up of over 1, 200 young people with one fundamental belief system— a relationship with God as the core that propels prosperity, not only as individuals but also together as a church-family and part of the larger society.SPAC Nation is led by Senior Pastor, Tobi Adegboyega, who started the church 10 years ago and is the lead mobiliser of what can be called the
‘Daniel-generation.’ These are young people, who are sold out for Christ and are willing to follow God’s will for their lives wholeheartedly – a generation of young, uncompromising non-conformists.Through Pastor Tobi’s leadership in the community, he has spent the last 10 years supporting and mentoring young people globally and investing about £2m into 68 businesses across London, which have become success stories and continue to thrive through the SPAC Nation Foundation platform.
Over the years, SPAC Nation Foundation has continued to address fundamental issues young people face, having been suppressed by their backgrounds and showing them that despite this, they don’t have to remain at that level and indeed, they can rise and look forward to a brighter future.
The doors have been opened for hundreds of young people over the years to reach out to the SPAC Nation Foundation, whether young men or women from deprived backgrounds, single parents, young fathers, gang-members or ex-offenders; giving them access to an alternative lifestyle and creating safer communities.
A demonstration of this was the flagship event ‘Entrepreneurial Sunday,’ where thousands of young people from different walks of lives, various cities in the United Kingdom and all religious beliefs came together to pitch innovative and intelligent businesses for investment opportunities up to tens of thousands of pounds.
As we bring this movement to Africa, we aim to continue supporting young, with a focus on those that are mostly coming from difficult and disadvantaged backgrounds. We intend to inspire, mentor and invest in start-up businesses, education and generally support young people to prosper, following the same model, which we have successfully demonstrated in London.
Our goal is to provide an extensive platform, which will provide awareness and visibility, as well as promote the trajectory of young people. We plan this through various events that invite entrepreneurs to showcase their works and also gain the chance to receive investment in the form of capital, industry opportunities, work-experiences and access to a network of top-class achievers.
