History & BackgroundThe Ghana Evangelism Committee (G.E.C.) is an indigenous, interdenominational, service agency. The Committee came into existence in 1974 to introduce the “New Life for All Movement” into the churches of Ghana. Since its formation, the Committee has developed a clear commitment to see the Great Commission fulfilled in Ghana and beyond, through the mobilization of the Body of Christ.
G.E.C.’s concern is that the Body of Christ in Ghana ought to be working directly at the discipling of the whole nation, including all people groups, in response to the command of the Head of the Church – the risen Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20).
G.E.C, believes this will be most effectively accomplished when the churches of Ghana are committed to the goal of an active witnessing church for every village, town, neighborhood and ethnic community of 300 to 1,000 people in the nation. This means at least one group of believers will be sharing the Good News of Christ Jesus within each and every community in the country. Thus, everyone is given an equal opportunity to accept or reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour; and also, anyone who responds positively will have a church to attend where he/she can be effectively discipled.
G.E.C.'s commitment is to communicate this vision to all levels of church leadership and see the churches of Ghana mobilized to complete the task through saturation church planting in our generation.
G.E.C.’s role is to be catalyst through researching The Task and the dissemination of information in seminars and publications; through orientation of leaders and local churches on ways and means to grow, plant churches and reach the unreached; and through pioneering new programs and strategies geared to the growth and multiplication of churches – especially amongst the unreached.
