The Ghanaian church is in desperate need of unity, accountability, and maturity as a spiritual body. Although churches in Ghana are numerous, many people suffer from a distorted view of the fundamental truths found in Scripture.
Our passion is to come alongside the existing church in community with Doctrinal teaching. We engage in both individual and group discipleship. We have a an existing ministry building to use as a platform for a variety of strategic ministries designed to promote spiritual health, and a passion for the lost in the community. With multi-level bible classes, community development and outreach projects, and focused large group conferences, we work to see a unified church in Ghana that is effective in reaching those who have yet to know Christ as Savior and friend.
Our vision for the future is to expand and complete the existing build to accommodate to a variety of both short and long-term training. We will work to train competent and Godly leaders in order to, one day, hand over all operations to create a Ghanaian led ministry platform that will effectively train workers for the harvest field. We desire to see missionaries trained in Nkwanta, and sent to the unreached in Ghana and beyond. We will continue to bring short term ministry teams to Nkwanta to aid us along the way. Who knows, maybe God is calling you to join us on a trip or even as a full time worker. If you feel God is leading you in this direction, we would love to chat with you about it!
– Pray for the existing church in Ghana. That they will desire to grow spiritually, unifying under the banner of the truths found in God’s word.
– Pray for continued and sustained financial support for the ministry
– Pray for God to raise up other additional workers to join us in this vision
We have been married for 20 years and have three daughters, Lindsey(26), Chloe(18), and Cora(16). We both grew up in small farming communities in Southern Michigan and Northwest Ohio. Though we only lived 5 miles apart during our childhood, we never met until we were adults attending the same church.
We both accepted Christ at a young age, but God used many ups and downs in each of our lives to deepen and mature our faith, along with bringing us both amazing mentors. We shared an interest in cross-cultural ministry, which the Lord cultivated through short-term mission trips. Eventually, on one of these trips to Tanzania, God laid it on Gerri’s heart that it was time to pursue cross-cultural missions full-time. We have served in West Africa as missionaries since 2012.
