A Ghanaian church in Columbus, Ohio, has been adjudged the best church in the United States of America.
Jesus Power Assembly of God, founded and headed by Ghanaian General Overseer Apostle Bismark Akomeah, was adjudged the most influential in the United States.
The honour was given to the church as it marked its 20th anniversary recently.
The General Superintendent of the Assembly of God – USA – Rev Doug Clay, presented the award to the church during its anniversary.
Apostle Bismark Akomeah and his wife, Reverend Linda Akomeah, received the awards on the church’s behalf.
The 20th-anniversary celebration of the church was graced by numerous dignitaries, including Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther, the General Superintendent of the Assembly of God- USA, Rev Doug Clay, the former Superintendent of Assembly of God, Rev Robert Crabtree, a representative of the Governor of Ohio, Rev Stephen Wengam, Sr. Pastor, Cedar Mountain Chapel and a host of others.
The Jesus Power Assembly of God reportedly started from a basement with 25 members to its current strength of over 5,000 members with branches in different cities and states of the US.
Often when we report on Ghanaians in the diaspora, it’s covering their achievements in academia or their professions.
Finally, Ghanaians’ love for religion appears to have yielded some fruit.
Congratulations to the church and its members – this is how they’re also selling Ghana to the world.
