A Divine Calling
Samuel Godson's spiritual journey began in August 1998, at a crusade organized by the Catholic Charismatic Renewal at Independence Square in Accra. It was at this event that he accepted Christ Jesus into his life. This profound experience led him to join the Charismatic Renewal movement, where he enrolled in their spiritual training program, LIFE IN THE SPIRIT SEMINARY (L.S.S.), for three transformative months.

Early Evangelism and Ministry
Upon graduating from the seminary, Samuel’s fervor for soul-winning saw him joining the evangelism team of the movement. He and his team were responsible for outreach programs in towns around Gomoa for a period of four years, passionately spreading the gospel and touching countless lives with their message.

Journey with Winners Chapel International
Driven by a desire to expand his ministry, Samuel transitioned to Winners Chapel International. There, he immersed himself in their Basic and Leadership course at the WORD OF FAITH BIBLE INSTITUTE (WOFBI). His dedication and zeal were soon recognized, and he was appointed as an associate pastor. Samuel continued to participate in various evangelism and soul-winning programs, further cementing his commitment to spreading the word of God.

Leadership at Winners Chapel Ghana
Samuel’s journey then took him to Winners Chapel Ghana, where he served as an associate pastor at the Mallam branch in Accra. His years of service were marked by significant contributions to the church's growth and spiritual development.

Academic and Administrative Excellence at Living Faith Theological Seminary
