Planting in Accra, Ghana

Accra is the largest city of Ghana with an estimated four million people. The city is the most important cultural, economic and political city of the country. All of life in Ghana revolves around major cities, of which Accra is the foremost. As the city grows, it continues to attract migrants from other parts of the country and the rest of West Africa. Accra serves as a center of opportunity for students and young professionals, and the largest and fastest growing segment of the population is 20-24 year olds.

Samuel Boateng and his wife Gifty have a vision for a church in Accra that reaches the quickly-multiplying professional class. They believe the city desperately needs churches that preach and demonstrate grace and the gospel, that point people to Christ and that bring renewal to every aspect of the city’s life.

Currently in the research and planning phase, they are working to better understand the context within which they’ll be planting and are looking for like-minded people to be part of their core group. 

Join us in praying for Sam and Gifty as they seek to engage the spiritually hungry and lost of Accra with the gospel. Specifically pray for direction to know and find the best location for the church, and pray that God will help them find others who share their heart and passion for Accra.
