US Church to Build a University at Denkyira Domenasi


The Fellowship of Joy Church in Grand Prairie, Texas, USA has pledged to commit 3 years of its Missions Fund toward the construction and establishment of Practical Christian University at Denkyira Domenasi in the Central Region of Ghana, West Africa.

This was made known by Nana Kwame Tufuor I (also known as Dr. Scott Camp), Founder and Senior Elder of Fellowship of Joy Church at a Fundraising Banquet held on Saturday March 19, 2011 at the Fellowship Hall of the Church.

Dr. Scott Camp, in a speech said that wherever Christianity has been presented, education has also followed. He quoted Acts 19: 9 to support his assertion.

The University will start with 3 initial programs: School of Nursing; School of Communication Studies; and School of Ministry.

Phase one of the Project will include the School of Nursing with a Clinic attached.

Dr. Scott Camp said he was moved by a news item on Modern which stated that the whole Upper Denkyira West population of 55,000 has only one Medical Doctor, four Midwives, and a Nurse to patient ratio of 1to 2,243

( Feb.11, 2011).
Dr. Scott Camp is the Nkosuohene (Chief of Development) of Denkyira Domenasi. He stressed on the importance of investing in education for the next generation. He added that all believers should endeavor to win souls for Jesus Christ.

Mr. Ernest Baidoo, CEO of UTC Distribution in Arlington Texas, promised to build a Cafeteria/ Kitchen for the University at Denkyira Domenasi at a total cost of $ 80,000.00.

Twenty-two members of the Fellowship of Joy Church pledged to pay for the construction cost of the University Clinic.

The Chiefs and people of Denkyira Domenasi released land in August of 2011 for the University Project.

Dr. Kwadwo Adom Tufuor, a native of Upper Denkyira West District and also a Pastor of the Church, spoke and elaborated on the job opportunities that will be made available for the local area in particular and Ghana in general. Dr. Adom Tufuor thanked the Ministry and all donors for their gift to Ghanaians.

The Banquet was sponsored by Ms. Winifred Sackey, Women of Joy, and Dr. Ndufola Kigham of Genpharm and Brookhaven Apothecary, two Pharmacies based in Dallas, Texas.

Dr. Prince Adom, an Associate Pastor of Fellowship of Joy said prayers for the occasion and for the Project.
