Ghana

Welcome to the Republic of Ghana, the first black African nation to gain independence from British colonial rule (1957). The name of the country, which is rich in history and natural resources, was changed from the European name ‘Gold Coast’ to Ghana, after the great African empire which once flourished in Mali and Senegal.

Ministry Vision
We want to see true followers of Jesus Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit, united in a mature Church that values people and God’s creation. We see these believers impacting and transforming society in Ghana and beyond for the glory of God. 

Current Ministry
Our ministry partners include the Bible Church of Africa (BCA), Challenge Enterprises of Ghana (CEG), and Maranatha University College (MUC). 

  • Youth: develop relationships with youth and disciple them for discipleship; work with churches to develop youth programmes
  • Development: health care, water supply, relief , and community development
  • Outreach: primarily focused on resistant people groups; radio broadcasts of The Way of Righteousness in four Ghanaian languages are being prepared; we are reaching out to a global migrant group living in Accra.
  • Mobilisation for mission: we work with the SIM West Africa Office, other missions and churches  to encourage Ghanaians to become involved in mission throughout the world
  • Urban, business, and professional: we encourage Christian professionals to be engaged with Church activities and we assist Christian business people with resources and contacts
  • Marriage and family: marriage counselling, training pre-marriage counsellors, and strengthening Christian marriages and families.
