This is the other piece of NCCF; The first one dealt with the History of NCCF – Every Jesus Corpers should know that by now.
NCCF is a domain of Corpers and sometimes none Corpers who may seek accommodation for a short period of time. In every house, there is always a structure and formal or informal rules which govern the activities of individuals within the house and NCCF is no different.
There two types of Executive in NCCF Family House and I think you should know them.
- State Executive
- House Executive.
- The NCCF State Executive oversees the affairs of NCCF Zones and Subzones within the state.
- House Executives oversee the affair of the State House.
Note: A Zone and Subzone have executives but they report directly to State Executives…
In a typical State House, you will have the following executive with their alias… We don’t call these people by their real names. For a fact. you may not know their real name if you don’t ask. (While title remains the same, the alias may not be the same in all NCCF family house.)
- Papa – State President
- Uncle – State Secretary
- Auntie – Assistant Secretary.
This three are almost invisible, as they are rarely seen especially if you live in a State House. They are Barons of the house.
- Mama – Sister’s coordinator
She is in charge of feeding the belly of Jesus Corpers. Once she goes on strike, the house is in trouble.
- CBN – State Treasurer
- Fino – State Financial Secretary
In charge of money…..
- Rugged Man – Rural Rugged Secretary
- Prayo – Pray Secretary
- Rabbi – Bible Study Secretary
This three are the pillars of the house in terms of growing spiritually
- DD – Drama Director
- MD – Chief Music Director
- TOS – Transport and Organisation Secretary
- Plublo – Publicity Secretary.
This three make things happen with activities…
House officials (While title remains the same, the alias may not be the same in all NCCF family house.)
I was in NCCF Statehouse Alagbaka in February 2020, and I asked for Father, everyone was curious about the title. I later discovered Father as been changed. unfortunately, I can’t recall the new alias.
- Father – State brothers coordinator
- A Father – Assistant brothers coordinator
- A Mama – Assistant Sister’s coordinator
- Chiefo – Chief Usher
- A-Tos – Assistant Transport and Organisation committee
- CMD – Chief Medical Director
- AMD – Assistant Music Director
- Afayo Pape – Technical and Sound Director
An Executive becomes a G after handling over to a successor
- G-mama etc…
A G, though stripped of all authorities, has more honor than a current serving executive…
These are the informal title given to a person by the corpers in the house. When someone is known for a particular thing over time, he will be given a name.
- ‘KP’ Kitchen Papae (Papa) – Title is meant for a guy who works in the kitchen often without been called to do so
- Back Drainage Pape – Always washing the back drainage during house chores on Saturdays
- AFB – A Father Brother – This title is meant for a funny brother in the house.
- CSO – Chief security officer
- Elders – Group of friends who speak often in proverbs and settles dispute amidst Corpers.
There are more but can’t recall them…and only one person can bear this title at a time.
Unofficial executives don’t hand over. Once they leave, the house will select a suitable person with the same charisma to carry on the legacy.
Places within a typical NCCF State Family House. (Some of these places may not be available in all NCCF Family house)
- Minimart – buying junks and toiletry
- Intensive care unit – where the sick are attended too
- Hall – For worship
- Publicity unit – Books, CD for sales
- Kitchen – The most important place in the house…
- Office of the Secretary.
- Relaxation room – Probably the living room where you can watch Christian stuff on Gotv or DSTV depending on what the house provides.
You will meet a lot of Corpers with different characters, but ultimately the house is a place to be else, NYSC will never be complete.
Staying in NCCF is free… You can stay as long as you want. The first month is considered a visit – with free food and medical care. But the subsequent month, you will contribute to the feeding of the house but basic medical care remains free.
There is a stipulated amount of money to pay every month for feeding and may vary depending on the Statehouse. In NCCF Ondo Statehouse Akure Alagbaka, Jesus Corpers pays N4000 back then from 2013 to 2014.

NCCF Family song lyrics-
I love this family of God
So closely knitted into one
They have taken me into their arms
and am so glad to be a part of this great family.
Hand in hands together will stand
I need you to build this family,
I need you to always pray for me
Higher and Higher we will go
Stronger and Stronger we would be
Brighter and brighter we would shine
Don’t you know you mean so much
Papa, you mean so much to me
Mama, you mean so much to me
Uncle, you mean so much to me…
Father, you mean so much to me…[Any Corpers name] you mean so much to me…
