To me who am less than the least of all the Saints, this grace as given, that should preach among the Gentiles, the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ, to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.
In recent times, one of the greatest decisions the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has made which has impacted the Church more than any other decision was to give the mandate of evangelism solely to the Bible Study and Prayer Group (BSPG).
Since that time the story of the growth of the PCG in the planting of Congregations has become the story of the faithfulness of the BSPG to the mandate offered to the Group by the Church, and the story of the Taifa District is no exception.
Like the story of the New Achimota District, Church Planting activities in the Taifa Area were initiated from the Accra New Town (ANT) District and spearheaded by the ANT District BSPG.
The torch for the planting of Congregations in the Taifa Area was formally lit in the Taifa Congregation with the formation of the BSPG on 25th November 1984 with twenty five members . It was done under the supervision of then Mr. Ntim Gyakari (now Rev. Ntim Gyakari) who was the caretaker of the congregation.
An Interim Executive Committee was selected to execute the affairs of the Group. They were:
- George Yaw Ankomah (President)
- Zac Obeng Hinneh (Secretary/Fin. Sec)
- Juliet Okrah (Member)
- Deborah Asiamah (Treasurer)
The Group was inaugrurated on March 27, 1988, and the guest preacher was Rev, Branford Yeboah.
