DCI, aburi Ghana
Mountains have long been associated with DCI retreats in the USA. There is something about mountains that create the serenity to talk to and experience the presence of God. It is therefore not surprising to see God open the door for us to do ministry in one of Ghana's beautiful cities located in the mountains in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Aburi is fast developing and becoming a tourist destination in Ghana with beautiful hotels and resorts, some overlooking mountain ranges. The cool temperatures on the mountains will certainly remind you of fall in the USA.
DCI is starting a new ministry branch in Aburi, though the location is not in the mountains, close proximity to the mountains is always a plus. Overseeing the Aburi branch is a dedicated Pastor who has been serving the Lord for decades, in the person of Rev. Auric Adjei. He joins the DCI Pastoral team with the passion to run with the ministry's vision and our universal mandate to fulfil the great commission.
