From the early days of this mission, Rev. Sharon hosted short-term mission teams who came to teach, preach, and give humanitarian aid. A village church, Mount Zion Community Church, was an offshoot of one of these mission trips. The missionaries along with Bible School students, held a crusade and the church grew from there. One of the Bible School students is now the pastor of this flourishing church and he now also has started a Christian Primary School.
There are missionaries in Ghana now who received their start in Adidome at Titian Ministries (then called Missions International). Rev. Donna, the current director of the mission is one of them. She first came to the mission on her Bible school internship in 2004.
We believe this is a very important part of the ministry as these teams bring people whose skills and gifts are of great value to the work and to the people whose lives we touch. We also pray future missionaries will be raised up from this work.
Today, we have a yearly mission team come from Canada with Pastor Gerrie, our International Director. In 2014, they renovated the mission house so Rev. Donna could move in and start operating from Adidome. In 2015 and 2016, the team worked on completing the house on the ocean for Children of Zion and in 2017, also did some work on the Adidome facility. Pastors and Leaders Conferences, as well as some speaking in local churches, have been highlights each year as Pastor Gerrie and the team pour out their hearts to build up the church in Ghana. You can see reports from these trips under “News.”
We have also been blessed to have other missionaries come, including past teachers in our Bible schools, and are looking forward with anticipation to who the Lord will bring to us each year!
