Banyam Seminary is a school, a village and a congregation. Daily chapel services, Sunday worship, meetings, assemblies, and nearly-constant choir practice are held in the Streyffeler Chapel. Nigerians excel at passionate worship and evangelism. Choirs in pitch-perfect harmony are accompanied by drums and rhythm instruments. Sermons, prayers and offerings are not limited by time, and go on as long as the leader feels the proper inspiration.
Learning how to worship authentically and without inhibition is perhaps the greatest lesson that Americans can learn from our Nigerian partnership.
