Ghana: Anglican Church Goes Wild

From Ghana

The Anglican Church, the first Christian mission to be planted in Ghana, has embarked on a rebranding exercise to save it from losing its face in the country.

The Right Reverend Dr. Daniel Sylvanus Mensah Torto, Bishop of the Accra Anglican Diocese, who made this known in an interview with Ghana News Agency in Accra, on Thursday, said the rebranding efforts are meant to revive the mission to be alive to the commission that Christ gave the church.

He said it was in this light that the church was organising a three-day crusade in Accra with Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, President and Founder of UK-based World Miracle Outreach at the Black Star Square in Accra on the theme: "Only Jesus Can Save." The event spans May 15-May 17, and will be crowned with a Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, May 19.

Bishop Torto said the church had five solid pillars that would underpin "our vision to build the Anglican Diocese of Accra".

These are: "Equipping and empowering church agents, clergy, to deliver excellence; deepening spirituality; growth based on integrity and discipline; financial sustainability, and social impact."

The church engages in television and radio broadcasts, and actively involves members on the internet and other social media, and equips them to live and express their faith within their communities.
