Pastor and Mrs. Twumasi Ankrah: Celebrating 37 Years In Full-Time Ministry
Ato Kwamena Dapaah, now known as Pastor William Twumasi Ankrah, was born on December 13, 1953, at Agona Swedru in the Central Region of Ghana to Elder Sampson and Deaconess Dorcas Aba Twumasi, both of blessed memory.
He started school at the age of six at Sefwi Benchema in the Western Region. He proceeded to Sefwi Asawinso ‘B’ School and then, later to Tarkwa Methodist School. William wrote the Middle School Leaving Certificate Examination at Benchema on August 28, 1970, and he came out successfully with distinction. William took to farming since he could not further his education due to financial constraints.
William Twumasi Ankrah accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour and was baptised by immersion in the year 1969 by Pastor A. B. Mensah of blessed memory.
In 1978, he got married to Akua Quarm, now known as Mrs. Margaret Twumasi Ankrah whose father was an Ivorian and mother a Ghanaian from Sefwi, both of blessed memory. Their marriage is blessed with a son and seven daughters.
William was called into the full-time ministry of The Church of Pentecost and was ordained by Apostle Josiah Coffie Quaye of blessed memory in 1981. He was posted to his first station at Wassa Saa in the Western Region, the same year. He later went on to serve at Jacobu (1986-1991) and Enchi (1991-1997), Ashaiman (1997-2001), Assin Manso (2001-2006), Nkoranza (2006-2011), Yawmetwa (2011-2014) and finally Odumase Krobo (2014-2018).
The successes Pastor Twumasi Ankrah has chalked in ministry could not have been possible without the support of his wife, Mrs. Margaret Twumasi Ankrah, a virtuous woman who has stood solidly behind him.
A retirement service would be held in honour of Pastor William and Mrs. Margaret Twumasi Ankrah on Sunday, July 29, 2018, at the Odumase Krobo Central Assembly in the Agormanya Area of The Church of Pentecost.
