Ghana to host continent-wide crusade


Accra, March 11, GNA - Ghana is to play host to a landmark Africa-wide Crusade and Ministers conference between April 26 and 30 this year aimed at transforming lives and breath a new wave of life into Christians across the continent.

Dubbed: "Africa-wide Great Transformation Crusade and the International Ministers Conference," both events are being put together by the Deeper Christian Life Ministry and the Ghana Pentecostal Council to bring revival and also restoration of hope to the unsaved and the afflicted.

It is also to enable Ministers of the Gospel to discover new ways through which they could carry out God's work of salvation to the un-reached and the unsaved.

Briefing journalists in Accra on the crusade, Pastor James Kofi Abbrey, National Overseer, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Ghana, said the crusade would be beamed live to other countries on the African continent via satellite and to other continents through the Ministry's website.

Pastor Abbrey said comprehensive arrangements were already underway across the divide of various churches to make both events successful. He urged the media, which he described as partners in proclaiming the gospel, to provide support and cooperation in ensuring the success of the programmes.

"I am convinced that through you, the teeming population of Ghanaians all over the country will be able to receive the messages of the man of God, which I am sure will evoke immense spiritual, physical and material blessings for our people."

The continent-wide Crusade in Accra is the first to be held outside Nigeria after successful ones in Nigerian Cities of Port Harcourt, Aba and Benin City in which about 60,000 souls were saved and over 10 million people received the programme via satellite. Pastor William Kumuyi, General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry worldwide and a renowned evangelist, Teacher and scholar will address both events in Accra.

Pastor Abbrey said the General Overseer was happy to be coming to Accra at this time, where he believed God would use him to transform the lives of people and bring God's blessings on Ghana.

Pastor Kumuyi, the General Overseer, was born in 1941 into an Anglican home. He attended University of Ibadan, where he gained a First Class Degree in Mathematics. Pastor also studied for a postgraduate certificate in Education at University of Lagos, where he became a lecturer in 1973 and also started a small Deeper Life Bible Study group.
