Chicago: Fast-growing Ghanaian Presbyterian Church in Chicago finds an answer to its space crunch.

Rev. Samuel Afoakwa Badu, Resident Pastor

Rev. Samuel Afoakwa Badu, Resident Pastor – Their vision is to be Christ-Centered Self Sustaining and Growing Church. No wonder a few years after merging the Bethel and the Trinity Presbyterian Churches, the membership has risen from 90 to over 200 currently. To accommodate the growing membership, the leadership and members of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Chicago Redemption, decided to look for a new home which they found at 741 E. 84th Street, Chicago Illinois 60619. Although the old address is still listed on their website, they currently worship at the new address.

The Church is presently under the able leadership of Rev. Samuel Afoakwa Badu and the Presbyters. Reverend Badu and his family relocated from Toronto, Canada on March 19, 2013 to Pastor the church. Since he took over the reins of the Church, membership has almost tripled.
The main sanctuary of the current church building can seat 300 people. There are three rooms that seats 50 people each. One of which is being used currently for youth service. There are additional 5 rooms that can seat 30 to 40 people. These rooms are ready for individuals and Organizations to rent for meetings. The building has a large basement that can also accommodate about 200 people at a time with an adjoining commercialized kitchen ready for use. The basement is open for individual and group rental for various activities.

The church’s Prayer line is (712) 432 0140 with Code 397957# on Mondays 9:00pm – 10:00pm and Tuesdays 9:00pm – 10:00pm. Couns
