While attending a Bible School in Nigeria, Pastor George received the mandate to go to
Mankessim in the Central Region of Ghana to start a ministry. This was like the
Macedonian call and upon his return to Ghana in 1992 he worked with Manna Mission
Church, Teshie-Accra for a while before relocating to Mankessim. Pastor George and
Florence left for Mankessim to pioneer and established God’s Battle Axe Missions now
known as Floodgates Destiny Chapel in 1994. The ministry has touched tens and
hundreds of people especially the students of Mankessim Senior Secondary School,
children, youth and market women. Our outreach programs extended to Breman
Essikuma, Dewuranpong, Anasadzi, Ansafona, Bentisgua and many other towns in and
around Mankessim. The church is located at Agric Junction, School Kessim, Ajumako
Road. Rev. Stephen Awotwe (Liberty Center) is the Acting Overseer of the Ghana
Floodgates Audio/Visual Ministry – The Floodgates Audio/Visual Ministry in Ghana
reaches out to hundreds and thousands of people in the unreached and unchurched
towns and villages with the “Jesus Film” and many other Christ-Centered movies. This
Cinema evangelism is a powerful and effective tool for open air crusades, revival
meetings and church planting. Missionary J. B. Sackey is the National Representative.
He has rich experience in Audio/Visual Ministry and church planting and over the years
thousands of people have given their lives to the Lord through this Ministry. Our
partners are InterComm (Winona Lake, Indiana) and Gospel Communications
International (Muskegon, Michigan) in the United States.
In 2003, Pastor George travelled to Kenya for revival meetings and open air crusades
after which a number of churches were foundered under the Floodgates Destiny Chapel
in the South Nyanza Province of Migori district of Oyani Maasaai land. The ministry
started in 2000 with a few Prayer Warriors with the vision of organizing discipleship
teachings for new converts. By 2002 the ministry had few committed members
praying constantly for revival and expansion. Their prayer was answered when in
October 2003 the Lord sent Pastor George all the way from Ghana to the Oyani
Maasaai land. His visit and missionary work in the Oyani Maasaai land gave the
ministry a new perspective. His counsel and leadership teaching series led to the
establishment and registration of Floodgates World Missions Chapel (Floodgates
Destiny Chapel) to conform to the requirements of the Government of Kenya. As at
the year 2007 the church had eleven branches but had to close down four due to post
election violence. The churches are located in Oyani (headquarters), Ogwedhi Sigawa,
Awendo, Migori, Osingo, Dede, and Rakwaro. We hope to revive the churches in
Langata Enoosain church, Manyatta church, Rapogi church, and God Jope church.
Evangelist George Otieno is the National Coordinator.
Gloryhouse International Church has extended right hand of fellowship to a number of
pastors and ministries worldwide and intercedes for them. GIC has the vision to build
strong partnership with these ministries to encourage them with an apostolic covering.
