Bethel Kwabenya Prayer Ministry was formed in 1997,
a very significant year in our history with only seven members including
(Douglas Nana Tih) and the Prophetess
(Mrs. Comfort Abena Tih) at Adenta as a prayer group,
who meet regularly to pray and share the word of God.
In subsequent years membership grew in number and became a Pentecostal
domination with a strong commitment to the course of Bethel Prayer
Ministry International, Adenta branch.
By the year 2000 membership had grown immensely and it had received
recognition from the late Bishop Dr. Paul Owusu Tabiri (Founder,
Bethel Prayer Ministry International) who christened the camp as the Southern
Ghana Prayer Camp of Bethel Prayer Ministry International
representing the Southern part of the Republic of Ghana.
WHY THE NAME - BETHEL KWABENYA PRAYER MINISTRY?
Our spiritual father, the late Bishop Dr. Paul Owusu Tabiri
remains our mentor. He elevated Prophet Douglas Nana Tih to the Executive
level in Bethel Prayer Ministry International.
As result of divine wisdom on the Prophet, Bishop Dr. Paul Owusu
Tabiri led by God`s spirit confered on him the name SOLOMON, this
he said was derived from the Bible in Isaiah chapter 63:2b “ and
then shall be called with a new name which the mouth of the Lord
In a revelation the Almighty God announced to him (Bishop Paul Owusu
Tabiri) that the Lord’s covenant with Bethel Prayer Ministry
International at the Sunyani Prayer Camp has relocated to Bethel
Kwabenya due to the genuineness and faithfulness at Bethel Kwabenya.
This he supported with 2nd Kings 2:1.
He placed upon Prophet Douglas Nana Tih his personal coat
anointing and pronouncing that henceforth he shall inherit the double
portion of His (Bishop Dr. Paul Owusu Tabiri)`s anointing.
Our story after the death of our mentor Bishop Dr. Paul Owusu Tabiri
as that of the Israelites after the death of Joseph in Egypt when the then
Pharoah denied the Jews.
The new leadership at Bethel Prayer Ministry International changed
its perception about Bethel Kwabenya and expelled Bethel Kwabenya
from the main stream- Bethel Prayer Ministry International without
any tangible reason.In spite of this, the wife of our Late Bishop-Apostle
(Mrs.) Georgina Owusu-Tabiri who disagrees with their decisions still
participates in activities at Bethel Kwabenya Prayer Ministry hence,
we at Bethel
Kwabenya Prayer Ministry have established a strong affiliation with
our mentor’s family as part of our decision to adopt the family
of the late Bishop and all other assemblies that share our common
opinion including Pastors in the main stream (Bethel Prayer Ministry
International) to keep the affiliation with our mentor Bishop Paul
We hereby wish to state that our doors are still open for reconciliation
towards affiliation from any reasonable leader who cherishes the
vision of the late Bishop Dr. Paul Owusu-Tabiri.
As stated earlier, our main vision is evangelism (Soul Winning)
but as part of our holistic ministry objectives we have short
First among these objectives is to cater for the needs of Orphans
and Widows and other deprived people who deserve support.
We also wish to startup an Elementary School right after the completion
of our Ultra Modern Church facility in December 2009. This is because,
we have realized that the number of Elementary Schools within the
location of the church are few and as such we want to avail ourselves
as a channel of blessing to the community.
We are putting things in place to start holding Executive Christian
Seminars for Pastors and church workers. We also intend to start
a computer literacy program alongside as soon as practicable to educate
people who are interested in upgrading their knowledge in this modern
age as a result of this, we intend to introduce wireless internet
connectivity (wi-fi hotspot) within the church area.
We have a long term plan of putting up an ultra-modern medical facility
as well as hostel facility to house inmates of the Prayer Camp and
Bible school as well as any Christian who wants to go camping. This
hostel facility is expected to house over 500 people both male and
female with canteen facility and utilities such as internet and telephone
