About Joyful Way Incorporated:
Joyful Way Incorporated (originally known as Joyful Way Singers) is a gospel evangelistic ministry, which was born 50 years ago in Cape Coast, when a group of teenage students heeded to the call to establish what we know today as Joyful Way Incorporated.
It all began around October 1971 with a thought that was deeply impressed on the heart of Rev Prof Emmanuel Lartey to form a contemporary gospel music group, while he was praying in the Lower Dormitory Prefects room of Balmer-Acquaah House in Mfantsipim School.
The Core Mandate of the group is to proclaim the gospel of salvation through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ and to encourage revivals among Christians.
Guided by a single-minded mission to proclaim the gospel of salvation through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Group used and continues to use contemporary music as its major tool of evangelism.
It has branches in Cape Coast (UCC, Mfantsipim, Ghana National), Kumasi (KNUST), and its headquarters called the House of Joy at Mataheko, Accra
Over the years, the Group has travelled the length and breadth of Ghana, visiting several Senior High Schools, churches and villages preaching Christ and Him crucified. The Group has also ministered in the West African sub-region, Europe and the USA.
Joyful Way has over the past 50 years produced 15 albums with over 120 songs recorded on these albums.
