I Stand with Christ!

What is Lay Faithful Trust Foundation?

The LAY FAITHFUL TRUST FOUNDATION is Christian fund-raising platform initiated by National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF). The Christian Elders called on the Christian Social Movement of Nigeria (CSMN), the registered arm of Nigerian Church responsible for Christian socio-political issues, to establish it.

After considering the trend of events in Nigeria and the unrelenting ruthless assault by Jihadists against Christians, NCEF concluded that it is imperative that funding should be mobilized to defend and protect Christians as well as drive various Christian advocacies and interventions to stem the tide of the genocide going on in the Middle Belt.

During its meeting of Thursday, 23rd July 2020, after considering a Memorandum prepared by its Secretary on the establishment of a Trust Fund, NCEF passed a resolution calling on CSMN as the socio-political arm of the Church to revive the Christian Trust Fund in the collective interest of all Nigerian Christians. The revived Trust Fund is the Lay Faithful Trust Fund.
