About The Church Of Pentecost
The Church of Pentecost is a Pentecostal denomination that originates from Ghana. The Church currently has a presence in more than 105 countries globally. Its current Chairman is Apostle Eric Nyamekye.
The church has its origins in a British mission of Rev. James McKeown (missionary) in Ghana in 1937. In 1953, The Church was founded as Gold Coast Apostolistic Church. Upon the country's attainment of independence in 1957, the name changed to the Ghana Apostolic Church. In the resolution of a conflict with the Apostolic Church, Ghana, the then President of Ghana, Dr. Nkrumah ruled that the church adopted a new name, thus, in August 1962, the name Church of Pentecost came into being. Through foreign missionary work and establishing relationships with other Pentecostal churches, the Church of Pentecost expanded into a worldwide movement. The Church of Pentecost currently operates in 105 Nations headed by Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists and Senior Pastors throughout the world and about 21,802 local assemblies in 2,381 districts. In 2018, global membership of the Church stood at 3,257,943, with children constituting about 1,056,062. The Church of Pentecost had 137,862 church officers and 2,492 ordained ministers in 101 nations.
