The Mission and Evangelism Board 

The Mission and Evangelism Board (MEB), is one of Grace Baptist Church’s vital ministries. MEB plays a critical role in Grace’s vision to disciple people, develop leaders and shape destiny. The MEB is responsible for Grace’s missions and evangelism activities and works collaboratively with the pastors to mobilize the entire congregation to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord to us to “Go ye therefore into all nations and make them my disciples” (Matthew 28:19). MEB is headed by Rev. Justice Appiah-Kubi, the pastor responsible for missions and evangelism works to fulfill the Lord’s command through the activities of the following ministries at Grace:

This is a crucial wing of the MEB. Through this ministry the board has not only organized several crusades within the Kumasi metropolis and beyond to reach the lost with the gospel of the Kingdom but has also established a number of churches in the Ashanti region.

 

Fellowship and zonal committees
The MEB has grouped the entire congregation into small groups called fellowships (TWI service) and Zones (English service). These fellowships and zones not only serve as venues to strengthen and disciple members through weekly residential meetings but also serve as a conduit to reach the lost in the residential communities of our members.

 

Radio Ministry
The enactment of the law by the Government of Ghana that allows the establishment of private radio stations in the country, has made radio broadcast an important medium of mass communication. This has helped the church to reach thousands through the airwaves. The radio program dubbed ‘Grace Hour’ is aired on Saturdays on LUV 99.5 FM at 6:15AM.
