Breman Okukrom church of Christ is located in the Asikuma Odobeng District of the Central Region of Ghana.
The church was established in March 1997 by some brethren at Breman church of Christ, led by preacher Samuel Mends, Brother Emmanuel Fenyi now a preacher at Breman Asikuma (Broni krom church of Christ), Bro. Abraham Oduro (Breman Amoanda’s Preacher) and Bro. Ackom (now at Twifo Praso church of Christ).
I, Preacher James Boabeng and Preacher Fenyi devoted ourselves to take charge and take care of the church, so we used to go there every Fridays and come back on Tuesdays.
On the 25th of September 2000, brother Fenyi left the church, hence I took full care of the church to date.
The church started with a membership of nine (9) people.
Currently, the church has an average membership of around thirty-six (36) of which fifteen (15) are men, eighteen (18) are women and twenty (20) are children.
The church has a permanent place of worship but under an uncompleted building.
The weekly giving of the church on Sundays is around GHC50.00 – GHC80.00
Most of the youth have left for the cities to seek green pastures. This phenomenon of continuous migration of the youth to the cities is affecting the growth of the church.
My name is James Boabeng, aged sixty-nine (69), with three (3) children. I am the preacher for Breman Asikuma church of Christ since 1996.
The financial position of the church is very weak and therefore they are unable to support the preacher financially. This is why I applied for support from RGM.
I have been on Rescue Ghana Mission (RGM) support for a year and I have been receiving monthly top-up allowance which supports me as I lead the church in such a poor and deprived community.
I appreciate the support I receive from the RGM monthly, without it things would have been very difficult for me and my family.
I will like to thank the managers of Rescue Ghana Mission for such this initiative and more especially to those who donate in cash and kind to support rural preachers like me.
God bless you.
