Teaching Team – Accra & Peki

Celebrate the 25 year anniversary of the Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Cathedral in Accra and travel to the village of Peki to teach basic Orthodox catechism and encourage this mission parish. The 25 year anniversary is the year of the “Renewal of Orthodoxy in Ghana.”

Teach the Orthodox Faith to catechists, Sunday school teachers and parishioners in Peki, Ghana where English is the official language. This Team will help equip the faithful of Peki with a deeper understanding of Orthodoxy to help them understand and defend their faith, teachings and dogma.

The Orthodox Church is the only faith not associated with colonialism in Ghana and this Team will be part of the continued growth of this young Church. In 1982, Ghana was canonically received into the Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria. The Cathedral was constructed in 1989 with the aid of an Orthodox Mission Team. The Holy Archdiocese of Ghana was established in 1997 and His Eminence Savvas was elected Metropolitan of Ghana at the end of 2012. In its jurisdiction it includes the countries of Ghana, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Mali.

Ghana is home to a wide diversity of people groups, rapidly entering a modern and fast paced world. On the one side, people may still be seen in traditional clothing and adhering to the old traditions, but many now have access to cell phones and internet. Ghanaians are divided into 75 different ethnic groups. Although the 2010 census reported that over 70% of the Ghanaians population is Christian, Islam (in the north) and traditional religions are second and third in percentage of adherents.

Volunteers with a firm grasp of the Orthodox Faith and the ability to teach are encouraged to apply!

Celebrate the renewal of Orthodoxy in Ghana.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
