Jump to navigation Jump to search

Igbetti, a town of some 6,000 (2005 pop. 25,000) in Southern Nigeria, West Africa. Still unknown to missionaries in 1919, 25 years later it was the home of the world's largest United Missionary Church congregation, with an average Sunday attendance of around 1,000. Its development was largely due to the work of O. L. Traub and G. J. Bolender. Besides the church in the 1950s there was a school with an enrollment of 200, a dispensary, a Bible school, and a normal school.
