Calvary Ministries, popularly known as CAPRO, which is an acronym for Calvary Productions which was her original name. CAPRO started as a spontaneous outreach to the Unreached People Groups (UPGs) of Northern Nigeria. What was meant to be a short-term outreach in Zaria City by a group of young zealous evangelists has become an International Non-denominational Missions Agency. CAPRO missionaries are known for their devotion to Jesus, commitment to the Word of God, passion for the lost, and their expectation for the Lord’s return. The missionaries believe that the fulfilment of the missions mandate requires sacrifice and consecration. It is to this end that the missionaries have dumped their career pursuit and ambition so that the unreached ethnic groups of the world will have the opportunity to hear about Jesus before the Lord’s return.
