Poised to Usher West African into a Spiritual Revival
Ghana gained its independence from Britain in 1957, which was followed by a very unstable and difficult season for its people. In 1992, Ghana became a democratic nation and the stability of the country slowly began to grow. The country currently acts as a pillar of stability throughout the region. The history of the Christian church in Ghana is so deeply intertwined with indigenous religion that many practices labeled as ""Christian"" are often deeply influenced and characterized by spiritual indigenous practices.

The Islamic population in Ghana is growing quickly, as are religious tensions within the country; however, there are Ghanaians who are passionate about taking the gospel to the north where many unreached people live. As the Ghanaian church is mobilized, the country will have great potential for mission efforts throughout the entire region of West Africa!
