The missions department oversees all forms of missions which the ministry undertakes. This includes both local (within Ghana) and international missions (outside Ghana-).
Functions of the Missions Department
Scouting involves investigating, surveying, exploring and acquiring all the needed information concerning possible mission fields before going for the actual missions
Training and preparing of missionaries for missions. These trainings are done in retreats, and focus on preparing participants adequately for missions.
This involves making all arrangements necessary for a successful mission. It includes activities such as securing accommodation, making travel arrangements, mobilizing resources and logistics for all activities on the mission field
The mission department depends heavily on eternally generated funds to embark on missions. Funds are needed generally to cover cost of travel, costs of organizing retreats, accommodation and feeding expenses, and the running of activities on the mission field. The department also requires funds for its day to day administrative and correspondence tasks
Over the past 22 years since the establishment of the ministry, there have been several mission trips to many parts of Ghana especially the three Northern regions (Northern, Upper East and Upper West). Towns and villages reached include Wa, Tumu, Vieri (all in the Upper West region), Zamashegu, Gbintre, Nbaila, Tochiman, Gushegu (all in the Northern region), and Gbedema, Zeng, Jiningsa, Balerisa, Fumbisi (Upper East region). Other mission destinations have been Koforidua (Eastern region), and Kayefi (Central region).
