During the 62nd session of the Nigeria Baptist Convention in 1977, a call went round for the Baptist Brotherhood Society in Baptist Churches to transform by adopting a new name and changes in activities in all local Baptist Churches to “Baptist Men’s Fellowship (BMF).”
The Baptist Men’s Fellowship was thus established at the First Baptist Church Lagos in 1982 with the following aims and objectives:
• To pray for the mission
• To teach mission and
• To embark on mission and evangelism work
Membership was drawn from all existing church societies in the church,
The first president of Men’s Mission Union was Mr. Emmanuel Ogundipe thereafter Chief J. Akin-George, Messrs A.O. Oyediran, S.O. Akiode and E.A. Ayoade (current president).
The following members have been called to glory: Bro. J.J.A. Akinleye, Bro. E.A. Adeleye, Pa. T.A. George, Bro. S.A. Akinola and Bro. Abayomi Fajobi.
