What is your ministry?

My passion now is for raising reproducible Christ-like disciples as a strategy for finishing the work of world evangelism through the Christ-like Disciplemakers Movement. I also preach in several churches across Ghana and in other countries, while serving as the head pastor of my local congregation, and as Chairman of the Executive Council of my church. I am also the rector of a Bible College.

When did you trust Christ?

Born a Roman Catholic, I was preached to at the Mfantsipim School (a Methodist secondary school), which is where I first heard the gospel. Although I didn't accept Christ that day, my roommate did. The change in my roommate was so drastic that I let him lead me to Christ later on in that school year so I could also experience such change. I accepted Christ in June 1973 and have never looked back.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

I was discipled by a local pastor from the Navigators when I began attending university. I also attended Scripture Union camps and did missionary work in Mauritania in Northwest Africa. These experiences had a profound impact on my spiritual life.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

Through the Forum I will be able to learn about the state of Christianity in Europe. I will be able to learn more about discipleship and will be able to apply what I learn to the African context. I will be able to network with like-minded ministers of the gospel.

What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?

I was previously the president of Soulwinners (a campus evangelism ministry), the regional pastor for Gospel Revivals Ministry where I oversaw 20 pastors and 40 congregations, and the chairman of Great Commission Church International (which is made up of 133 congregations in Ghana, 50 in Togo, and 2 in Benin).

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I am the rector of a Bible College and we shape the lives of many students. I am church leader with pastors and congregations under me for training and leadership. I have an interdenominational speaking ministry within Ghana and beyond. As leader of CDM, an interdenominational group dedicated to finishing the task of world evangelism, I impact many lives through God’s grace.
