As a cross-cultural
mission training and mission sending ministry, ACM
places a high premium on quality missionary
In this regard, ACM joined forces with Western
Partners to found Ghana's premier missionary
training institution - the Ghana Evangelical
Missionary Institute (GEMI).
GEMI seeks to provide biblical, contextualized and
practical cross- missionary training for African
Christian men and women who believe themselves
called of God
to go to the tribes and people of Africa and the
world to make disciples of Jesus Christ and
establish His Church.
GEMI is an inter-denominational Institution with
staff and students drawn from Ghana and other
countries. Christians from Togo, Liberia, Ghana,
Nigeria and USA have been trained and are actively
serving the Lord.
Ministering to the total man is ACM's goal. The
ACM team is therefore involved in a holistic
ministry that does not just touch the spiritual but
the emotional, medical and physical aspects as well.
Medical Evangelistic outreaches are therefore often
held at needy and improvised areas in different
parts of Ghana. The medical teams made up of
doctors, nurses and other para-medical personnel
provide free medical consultation and medication. Evangelistic and Prayer teams minister to the
spiritual needs of the people.
Through the medical missions, numerous lives have
been saved from disease and death, many have been
healed and delivered from the powers of darkness and
thousands of people have given their lives to
Christ. This includes fetish priests, occultist and
Chiefs of some of the villages affected.
After a series of medical missions, ACM came to the
realization that the medical needs of the people
being reached were so numerous that there was
therefore the need for a constant visitation of such
deprived areas using the medical services as a tool
For this to come to fruition meant the establishment
of medical facilities base (equipment, drugs, etc.) to
support the outreach programs.
ACM's work includes compassion ministries to
orphans, the sick, the poor and disabled. Orphans
have been resettled through the Mission's foster
home program and the sick have received free medical
consultation and medication through medical
In association with the "Relief of Oppressed People
Everywhere" (ROPE PROJECT), many poor and needy
people have received assistance to engage in
ACM has also helped Liberian refugees in Ghana. The
"lost" and "needy" are on the Lord's heart and ACM
seeks to be a channel of God's blessing to them.
In Africa today, there are 578 people groups that
are yet to be reached with the gospel. Some have a
population of over three million without a single
In Ghana the picture is no different. According to
the Ghana Evangelism Committee (GEC) 1993 survey,
there are 14,000 towns and villages without churches
About 66 % of Ghana's children (6.3 million) are
outside the church. There are also 2 million
unreached northern and alien people-groups in
Southern Ghana and 3 million in the North.
The need to reach these unreached people groups
cannot be overemphasized. ACM has a ten-year church
planting plan to plant churches in the unreached
areas in Ghana and beyond.ACM missionaries have already planted churches in
the Central, Greater Accra and Volta Regions.
ACM is involved in both rural and urban church
planting. In the urban areas, ACM targets minority
groups. An example is the Calvary Victory Worship Centre at Nima in Accra, established for the Bulsa People.
Nima is Accra's biggest slum with a population of
about 800,000. Nima is well known as a Moslem

ACM DayCare Center - Amedzofe
Through the use of a Christ-Centered Educational
Curriculum with children in the Mission's schools,
ACM provides a head start for youngsters needing to
catch the vision for world missions. The curriculum
has its foundations in the word of God, without
compromising academic excellence. The Mission
realizes that 60% of Africa's population are under
25 years of age, thus the urgent need to focus on
The Christian Day Care facility at Amedzofe seeks to
cultivate God's word in the hearts of the children
at an early age. Through these children, the Mission
hopes to reach the entire community.
African Christian School - Sankor
The AFRICA CHRISTIAN SCHOOL, Sankor, currently has
1,000 strong pupils from kindergarten to Junior
ACM Vocational Tranining Center - Amedzofe
The ACM Vocational Training Centre at Amedzofe and
the Buem Vocational School at Bodada (sponsored by
ACM) provide Christ Centered vocational training for
young girls and women in dressmaking, batiking,
hairdressing and catering.
The Bulsa Project
This project targets the Bulsa people group in
the Upper East Region of Ghana. ACM, the Christian
Missions Resource Foundation (CMRF) and other
partners are spearheading a holistic missionary
outreach programme which involves medical missions,
Jesus Film evangelism, discipleship, leadership
training and drip irrigation farming.
The dubbing of the Jesus film in the Buli language
of the Bulsa people was sponsored by the First
United Methodist Church, Tulsa, USA and it is
expected to draw thousands of Bulsas to Christ.
Based on the success of the above named projects,
this missionary strategy will be used to reach other
people groups in Ghana and beyond.
