Our History

The Chapel of Revelation began when some Christian Staff at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike (then Federal University of Agriculture) realized there was urgent need to provide for the spiritual welfare of Protestant students on campus, apart from the few existing student fellowships. It was observed that on Sunday mornings students were seen washing clothes, some playing games because of probably a lack of place of worship as some of them were only waiting for the Fellowships that met in the evening. This became a burden to some Christian Staff members. This idea was however not welcome to all the brethren, as some felt that All Saints Chapel at NRCRI which was already existing and serving the community was sufficient to meet all spiritual needs in the environment.

After much prayer and consultation with senior brethren and mature students, a firm decision was taken in January 1997 to start services in the Chapel, and a steering committee, comprised the following:
