The missionaries of the Primitive Methodist Mission pioneered into Igboland in 1910 and encountered opposition and difficulties. Efforts to become established were hindered by several factors. However, starting from 1914, a religious awakening led by Garrick Braide, an African convert of Niger Delta Pastorate Church (i.e. Anglican Church in the Niger Delta), spread throughout Igboland causing widespread religious revival. Using original source material, this article examines how the Primitive Methodist Mission benefitted greatly from this religious awakening, and subsequently witnessed phenomenal growth and consolidation in Igboland.
