Communication in Africa is growing at an unprecedented pace. African governments are investing close to $100bn dollars annually for new infrastructure in communication. There are presently over 500 million mobile phones in Africa. Nigeria remains the economic hub of Africa. With an approximately 50% Christian population, these explosion poses opportunities and challenges for evangelisation in Nigeria. Although, the internet boom is still on the rise, print media has remained an important media of information. This work investigates, how church evangelisation can maximise the opportunities these media explosion bring about.
