Parembo church of Christ is located in the Bono East District of the B Region of Ghana.
The church was established by preacher Owusu and some brethren from Ejura church of Christ in the year 1982/1983. The church collapsed in the year 1997 due to the fact the then preacher had to further his Bible studies.
But in 2002, preacher Dacosta came revived the church but due to the guinea-worm disease, the preacher could not stay for long and preacher Valentine took over the church in 2011 after completing his Bible studies.
The church started with a membership of twelve (12) people.
Currently, the church has an average membership of around thirty-five (35) of which thirteen (13) are men, twelve (12) are women, ten (10) are children.
The church does not have a permanent place of worship. We worship in the classroom.
The weekly giving of the church on Sundays is around GHC60.00
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 Valentine Togbui, aged fifty-five (55), and married with eight (8) children. I am the preacher for Parembo church of Christ since 2011.
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 about three (3) years 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.
