Rev'd Canon Dr. Shadrach Ofosuware
Reverend Dr Shadrach Ofosuware was called by God into ministry about 30 years ago with a mandate to undertake the task of ‘Raising Overcomers and Setting the Captives Free’. He has an unquestionable passion for souls and a desire to totally eradicate poverty from the body of Christ. Aside his vast teaching material, he has authored two books titled ‘War on Poverty’ and ‘Christian Counselling and Biblical Psychology’.
His life is a testimony to what he believes in, that knowledge is a vital tool in sending “poverty to the scrap yard”. Dr Shadrach studied for a Bachelor of Arts degree in the Former Yugoslavia and also holds master’s degrees in theology from Westminster College and University of Oxford. He obtained a Doctorate degree from F.I.C.U. California, U.S.A.
His zeal for the work of God has been recognized across the world. In 2017 the Kumasi Anglican Church in Ghana honoured him as the first Pentecostal minister to be installed as a canon at the Kumasi Cathedral. Dr Shadrach has a heart for community work.
He is the vice chair for Ghana Christian Council UK and Ireland (GCCUK) the official umbrella body endorsed by the Ghana High Commission UK and Ireland, and the Ghana Union UK to mobilize and unite Ghanaians to serve God and country. He is a steering committee member for Common Purpose, an independent UK based international leadership development organisation.
He is also the chairman for International Commission of Ministers (ICOM) a Christian based non-denominational ministerial body with membership across the world as well as a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (FRSA), an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges.
