DSC_3773Hi, I’m Michael and for the past decade I have been involved in the ministry of teaching, counselling, mentoring and discipling young people. My work has led me to reach out to thousands of non-Christian and Christian youth in Ghana. As a youth leader, I have helped some congregations and parachurch organisations develop mentoring and discipleship programmes for young people.

In working with the youth, my goal is to help them make the right decisions and choices in life, while focusing on the most important occupation of man—to glorify God.


asamoah-gyadu“Michael’s book is one of the most biblically balanced popular books on Christian spirituality that I have read in several years…The topics in this volume are critical to Christian life and even ministry and so the book could serve as basic teaching material for new Christians and mature candidates for Baptism and Confirmation in our denominations. It will also serve the needs of new Christians working to find their feet in Christ.”—Rev. Prof. J.
