Rhema Full Gospel Church – Zukpe
In the year 1991, a very big crusade was held in Zukpe town by the leadership of the Rhema Full Gospel churches. The souls won for Christ then were attending church at Kpoglu, one of the branches of the Rhema Full Gospel churches under the leadership of Rev. Moses Sallah. Zukpe Rhema Full Gospel church was fully opened in the year 1994 led by Pastor Simon Torku at Torkukorfe in a shed roofed with thatch.
A portion of this shed was destroyed by rain and worshiping in it was always at the mercy of the weather. The challenges of the church then compounded greatly that the leadership of the Rhema Full Gospel churches moved Rev. Simon Dordor from Woe branch to Zukpe to be in charge of the church. The membership of the church then was forty three (43) ; six (6) men, ten (10) women, twelve (12) youth and 15 children .Worshiping on Sundays especially became a headache for the church. Considering the structure in which members were worshiping, the new leadership of the church quickly came out with a two (2) year’s budget towards acquisition of land. To make the budget more easily achievable, it was divided into four quarters.
As a result, the land on which we are today was bought; a single room was built on it and this shed was also erected as a worship center till today. That was not the end. Based upon this success, the leadership of the church again designed a (5) year’s budget which was again divided as usual into quarters on yearly basis. In the first year, the church bought 88 pieces of iron rods. In the second year also, twenty-one (21) trips of sand was bought. The third year was also used to buy two (2) trips of gravel. Finally, both the fourth and fifth year was used to buy 200 bags of cement hence the commencement of the building up to the roofing level. It will interest you all to know that the church did not pay any workmanship to anybody from the beginning of the building to the roofing level.
This is because Zukpe Rhema Full Gospel Church is pregnant with dedicated and reliable masons and carpenters who take full responsibility of the project on quarterly basis. Though most of them are staying in Accra, they always come around if it is time for the project with their own T&T. The church would also like to acknowledge the support of our Bishop; Rev Dr Raymond Sogah and a few individuals who supported the project with bags of cement.
