AVENOR BRANCH ( HEADQUARTERS )
Founded and strongly grounded on the central tenets of family, Winners Chapel Ghana has now been in existence for a decade. The ministry which many thought would not survive and thus abandoned, stands strong relying on the scriptures found in Acts 5:38-39:
‘And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it--lest you even be found to fight against God.’
As it forges into the future with its vision of sending ‘the Word to the world’, the ministry does not lose sight and thus continues with its equally central drive to establish a unified denomination and family thereof. The ministry also maintains a strong culture of pastoral membership contact.
It charts its course of progress gradually but steadily, even with the challenge of the hindering contention it faces in court as a result of the split. Staffing of WCG has also proven one of its greatest challenges as some of its staff left to follow the outfit at Lagos.
Despite this challenge, the ministry continues to grow. It has attained several more city branches and cultivated strong men of God and leaders to pastor them. As part of its contribution to education in Ghana and national development as a whole, the ministry has established a school; the ‘Heritage Academy’, which offers affordable but quality education to wards of members of the church and the general public.
There are plans to expand the school which currently spans education from Early Childhood Development (ECD) through Junior High School (JHS) to include secondary and tertiary education. The bible school established by WCG; the Winning Life Bible Institute (WILBI), continues with the ministry’s vision of imparting biblical knowledge to the leaders and members of the church as well as raising ministers for the fivefold ministry.
As part of its effort to care for and improve the lives of its members, aside administering welfare, and also towards poverty reduction in Ghana, Winners Chapel Ghana initiated the ‘Making a Million Millionaires’ project. The project as its name suggests involves members of the church, creating a pool of funds to jointly make investments with good prospects.
Winners Chapel Ghana envisages realising a future of established structures and established people who have caught on to the vision of WCG and are ready to run with it because they have been developed by the ministry and strongly identify with it.
Even as it celebrates its anniversary and its identity in ten years of service to God and humanity, the future of the ministry does not immediately provide the picture of a relaxed journey. The journey is however equally matched with a determined leadership buttressed by their unwavering faith in the divine direction of God, which has established, and brought Winners Chapel Ghana this far.
