The district has the same history with Effurun. Ekpan was organized out of Effurun in April, 2012, during Pastor J. Ikhane as Effurun District Pastor. The work started with Elder G. Ogolo and F. Ezenwoke who were going to Odibo from Ogunu every Sabbath for worship. To ease their hardship, the Old Warri district youth under the leadership of Onovae G. decided to conduct evangelism at Ogunu. After the effort, Elders Nwanganga F.O. and Anaba S.I. were sent by Warri district to Ogunu to join the few members there. These families worked very hard, soon, it turned out that the number of people coming from Ekpan area, where the Anabas and Nwangangas resides, were more than those in Ogunu. Consequently, the church decided to relocate to Ekpan. The first Ekpan district Pastor is Pastor Olatunji Olaofe. Ekpan District covers part of Uvwie and Okpe LGAs. It has 2 organized churches, 2 Companies and membership of 406.
