It all started when friends were having fun and holding a conversation when out of the blue Rev. Daniel Nyante suggested that it will be a good idea to form a Men’s Fellowship ministry in our church. This event took place at Mr. Kofi Manu’s residence.
Hence, the Men’s Fellowship was founded in the 2004. Rev. Dr. Daniel Nyante was immediately elected the president, Bro. William Younge as secretary and Bro. Manu as treasurer. This group was the first set of executive members. The fellowship started with membersship not more than ten but by the year 2006, it had more than doubled.
After a couple of years and numerous meetings in homes of members, the fellowship agreed that it was time for our inauguration. On March 5th, 2006 we finally celebrated our inauguration and it was a great day for all members because we were able to meet our goals that we set. Membership grew over the years to over 20 new members pushing the total well over 30.
However, it is sad to say that we lost 2 members when they were called home by the maker, one in 2007 (Bro. Kwame Bonsu) and the other (Bro. Alex Bamfo) in 2009. May their souls rest in peace. We later lost two other members to the clergy, Rev. Dr. Daniel Nyante and Rev. Amo-Adu when we were alerted at the 9/20/08 meeting by Rev. Atiemo that these two could no longer function as members any more. Obviously, Rev. Nyante had to step down as the president of the fellowship. Mr. Steve Safo, as a result of this development was elected acting president and eventually the president of the fellowship.
Rev. Amo-Adu, was ordained on Jan. 10, 2010, in the Baptist church. We all showed up to show our support.
Mr. Steve Safo served effectively as president for years as memberhip continued to be steady. We are proud to say that he was also the chair of the committee in search of new place of worship that landed us at our current location (367 94th st., Brooklyn). Unfortunately, Mr. Safo had to step down for reasons beyond our control. It took us a while to find his replacement but we found one in Mr. Emmanuel Appiah-Agyemang, our current and third president.
We lost Mr. Isaac Mensah to Ghana but he is always active in the fellowship when he is in town. We have lost some of our younger men to YAF but we are still alive.
We are proud to say that we have supported all kinds of activities at both local and national levels throughout the years. Our goal for the future is to continue to support activities and to grow spiritually. Thank you.
