A HOME FOR AE GHANA OFFICE
As African Enterprise Ghana, we seek to take the gospel to every nook and cranny of Ghana and other parts of West Africa. In doing so, we desire to focus our efforts more on capacity building in terms of discipleship and proper training to equip the church for the work of the Great Commission. The Lord has been gracious to us and has endowed us with a flagship stratified evangelism strategy, which we are seeking to bequeath to the local church through biblical training.
Unfortunately, we do not have our own training facilities and so we have to seek other premises, which do not always best suit our needs or timing. We also have to spend huge amounts of money on training programmes, as renting facilities can be extremely costly, especially training centres. Case in point, in 2018, we organised three training programmes for 450 church leaders in three different locations and we spent a huge sum of money to rent the space.
Therefore, after much discussion and seeking direction from the Lord, the AE Ghana board and the team management have resolved to purchase a property, which will serve as both an office and a training centre to enable us to fulfil our God-given mandate – to evangelise and make disciples.
We believe that possessing our own training centre will go a long way to ease the burden often associated with organising such training programmes and will enable us to cut down the cost. It will also enable us to organise more trainings in order to better equip church leaders and Christians in general.

The Proposed Building
After looking at several possibilities we have decided to go ahead with the purchase of the following property which you can see in the photos below.
The completed house has four one-bedroom self-contained apartments. (Each apartment comes with a bedroom, living room, kitchen and a washroom). We plan to knock down some of the rooms to make way for office space.
The uncompleted structure was originally designed for a multi-storey building. Currently, it has two (two-bedroom) self-contained apartments. We intend to knock down the middle partition to make way for a 200-seater hall that can be used for training programmes and other events.
The property will enable us to move our offices immediately and so save rental monies. We will also be able to use the training centre for the Women In Need (WIN) project. This will help us to disciple the women in the Word of God more easily.
Lastly, we can use the facilities to generate income by renting out the training facilities to other Christian organisations thus augmenting gifts received from our partners. This will help us to continue to build stronger partnerships with other churches and organisations.
