“The Anglican Football Academy has also started. We have directed the Dioceses and Provinces to conduct football matches and identify talented young people who will form our CON Football Club that can compete anywhere in the world”, Ndukuba announced.

Other effort by the CON to better the lots of its young ones was the recently concluded “Joshua Generation Skill Acquisition Programme where “about 65 young people in our church have been trained and commissioned in Theatre/Film industries. If we do not invest in our youth now, however costly, they will not be committed tomorrow.
