Read about his Ghana Music Ministry below:
Akwaaba! (Welcome), to West Africa, precisely Ghana where I live, my name is Isaac Agyemang Badu. After my basic education, I pursued Music Education and Theology and Community Development at Vineyard School of Music and Ghana Christian University College respectively.
Currently, in my country, most of the citizenry are Christians, but most rural communities have been abandoned, because missionaries (evangelists) are drawn to the urban folks, leaving the former in abject poverty, ancestral worship, witchcraft, diseases and the like. In addition, seeking for local assistance (financial) and partnership most often does not yield much, because most Christian groups and organizations focus on themselves.
Born into a Christian family, my love for God and the things of God grew steadily, at age 6, I was skillful at playing the instruments and singing, fast forward to age 12 when I confessed publicly Jesus Christ as my Lord and Personal Savior, and over the years I am owning my faith daily, (I bless God for the gift of salvation).
My ministry dream is to spread the gospel and win souls for Christ through music, draw people closer to God through music, raise true worshippers, bring liberty and hope to the oppressed, support the needy and the less privileged in my country and the world at large.
Though I love studying the word of God, however, I knew there was the need to devote much time to study so I was very happy when I came in contact with CLI and the getting started class has made me a very devoted student of the Bible.
I see myself as a music pastor and missionary (evangelist) because I love getting to know people and to meet them at the point of their needs, mentoring and training people in the things of God, propagating the gospel wherever I find myself and always taking steps to reach out to the unreached. It really gives me joy.
After God revealed the concept of true worship and its significance in the church (body of Christ), I realized the need to teach and help Christians understand true worship, this led me to Missions Door and Young Africa as a music missionary and pastor in Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Senegal and many churches in my home country. Whiles away serving in this capacity, I had the opportunity to enroll for some missionary and ministry courses, about that same time, Mission Praise Music Ministry was birthed to project my dream, and to the glory of God we have two branches; here in Ghana and Liberia.
In my country, some of the unique challenges have to do with the springing up of churches without sound doctrine speedily, the congregation are mostly illiterates and are unable to read the Bible for themselves, as such tend to capitalize on the words and directions of their leaders, thus introducing the unadulterated word (Bible) and sound doctrine to them is somewhat difficult because they would not want to be disloyal to their leaders. Because of the infiltration of these churches, propagation of the Gospel has become more challenging and most people would rather attend such meetings for “quick blessings”. Psalm 119:130 “For the entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple” (NKJV). I have more understanding to mysteries in the Bible that I practice and share with people, and I just can’t get enough of the word! My local church has affectionately accepted my ministry calling, supported me with prayers, counseling and I am the Pastor the music pastor/director to my church and many churches; my family has also been a strong pillar in this vein too.
My scholarship in CLI will afford me the opportunity to increase my knowledge “Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth” 2 Timothy 2:15(AMP).
My heart desire in ministry is always to establish contacts with individuals and organizations with shared interest, Ephesians 4:11 “And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.
In conclusion, please bear my ministry up in prayer with 2 Corinthians 9:8, “And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].
God bless you!!!
