About the Head Pastor
Hers is a voice for the voiceless, one who dares to stand up boldly to declare a message of hope, truth, deliverance and prosperity – compelling the attention of those who seek to discover their purpose in life and launch their destiny.
It is apparent that Rev. Osei Karikari Manu understands what it is to be taken advantage of, rejected, forsaken, despised by family and society; he's been there, and he knows how to get out"!
His story is one of tragedy and triumph, poverty and prosperity, protracted family squabbles, being deprivation of family fortune, contemplating suicide to a turnaround deliverance and dedication of life to pulling others out of their devil's orchestrated predicament so that they can focus in on God's unique plan of destiny for their lives.
Who would have ever dreamed that this rejected, would become somebody in the Kingdom business? Born to a pagan traditional chief and a Christian mother Osei was raised in a small town called Mpasatia then to Kumasi, Ghana. After completing a Associate Degree in Export Marketing he joined Asare Brothers Farm, a family owned livestock enterprise established by his deceased brother.
Over the years the business soared, so was the growth of family feud that threatened his very life and forced him out of the fruit of his own sweat and toil and to sojourn in the United States. Added to that his spouse dumped him for another man. Like Job, the so-called friends added insult to injury, hope was a far distant word, the next line of action was suicide, but lacked the courage to execute and a divine intervention.
On one painful snowy night after surgery, the Holy Spirit who sees all things spoke; "I have an unfinished business with you. Take away bitterness and resentment you have against your family for what they did to you and I will use you to help others".
Life is filled with challenges and opportunities and he believes that God can use adversity to equip us to win. God wants us to turn our stumbling blocks into stepping stones," 'All things work together for good for them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose' says Rom. 8:28.
Rev. Osei Karikari-Manu proclaims the unadulterated Word of God that is full of faith; faith to take you from the "familiar" and move you into the future. "Faith brings change. Change brings opportunity. Opportunity to grow more and see more and do more on one side, the opportunity to fail, but failure can be a step to the completion of a goal. You can fail your way to success."
Acts 10:34 tell us that God is no respecter of persons. So any one can be used by God as long as they yield themselves to His will.
