In a recent survey Ghana was ranked as the most religious country on earth. However, Josh Heikkila writes about the need for leaders who will challenge destructive tendencies that look to witchcraft.
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) began its relationships in Ghana more recently than in some other African countries. Our engagement in Ghana involves ministry through our partner church relationships. The PC(USA) joins its partners in Ghana in a holistic approach to ministry that includes education and leadership development, health ministries, community development, evangelism and new church development.
Many PC(USA) presbyteries and congregations have mission partnerships with presbyteries and congregations in Ghana. This forms the center of PC(USA) relations in Ghana along with an emphasis on outreach with the peoples of the more traditionally Muslim northern Ghana.
