I was born in a home where we believed in God and went to church. But
it was not until September of 2001 that I realized the difference
between being religious and being a follower of Jesus Christ (born
again). After my conversion and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus, I
was determined only to please and obey God because obedience was the
foundation of my covenant with Him.
I learned very early in my walk with God, that to please and obey
Him, I will first need to know His will for my life. Through various
circumstances, I understood clearly that irrespective of my chosen
profession, my days on earth are to be poured out for others and the
impact of my life must be transferable unto generations unborn. It
took 8 years from when I got saved to the day I surrendered my life
to the above calling. I have not yet arrived though; I’m still a
work in progress until I see Jesus face to face.
Below is a summary of my adventure with Jesus Christ so far. To Him
be all the glory and honor. But based on His word and experiential
faithfulness, I’m more than confident in His ability to lead to the
2001 – 2005: My discipleship through GHAFES (Intervarsity),
Scripture Union, and local church
2005 – 2007: With the help of the Holy Spirit started
sharing the good news salvation with unbelievers especially young
people. Served as a camp counselor for Scripture Union and an
instructor for B.A.S.I.C.S International’s1
vacation Bible camp.
2007 – 2010: Co-led the international students’ outreach
ministry on University of Wisconsin-Stout campus, Menomonie, WI USA
(while studying a masters programme), reaching out to foreign
students in creative ways and seeing students from countries such as
China, India, and Nepal hear the gospel, with Some surrendering their
lives to Christ.
2009 – 2013: Co-led different groups of American students on
short term missions to campuses and rural communities in Ghana. By
the grace of God, hundreds have come to faith in Christ through these
2011 – 2016: Worked on the two biggest University campuses
in Ghana. In those five years, I’ve shared the gospel with
thousands of students and discipled hundreds of students who are
either into fulltime ministry or workplace ministry. God opened the
doors for me to work with the University authorities, many of whom I
still have good relationships with. My work was not limited to the
spiritual needs of the students but academic (learning skills) and
physical needs such as food, health care, counseling, etc.
Together with the students, we went on several missions both on
campus and in the rural communities. During those mission
opportunities, we shared the gospel to thousands of people, offered
free medical services to villages, improved educational standards
both in the formal and non-formal sectors, fed the hungry, served in
orphanages, and transformed many lives by the grace of God through
the power of the gospel.
2016 – 2018: At age 36, the Lord blessed me with a woman who
loves the Lord dearly and is committed to missions. Not long after
marriage, my wife Afua got the opportunity to study MBA at Oxford
University in the UK.
Little did I know it was also God’s open door for me to be better trained for ministry. I was awarded a scholarship by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries to study Theology and Apologetics at Oxford University in the UK. I also took a course on Biblical expository preaching by the Proclamation Trust – London. By the grace of God, I have through my training gained a deeper understanding of what a God-glorifying ministry and mission look like than I had when I’d begun full-time Christian work in 2011.
