The Wesleyan Church of Liberia was started as a mission outreach from the Sierra Leonean church around 35 years ago. Civil war interrupted the ministry though, and all missionary personnel were evacuated. The church in Monrovia survived and grew during the war years, but much of the outlying church suffered because church leaders were simply not able to travel. The current leadershiphas recently been giving concentrated effort to strengthening and expanding the network of churches in those areas. The church has set up an admirable system of schools.

The Liberian Church is responsible for the mission outreach in Nigeria. This involves one church in Lagos, headed by Rev. Andrew Bondo, a Liberian worker who went to Nigeria to complete his Masters degree.
