The Resurrection Power Evangelistic Ministry started, as and still is a non-denominational evangelistic fellowship in Ghana, in the late 1970s. Its founder, late Evangelist Francis Akwasi Amoako, together with a handful of other Christian brothers and sisters among whom were Bishop Akwasi Asare Bediako and Rev. Richard Owusu met under the shed of a cocoa tree at the outskirts of Santasi a suburb of Kumasi, Ghana to study the Bible, worship and praise the Lord. It became a crowd pulling fellowship of believers as the Lord did extraordinary miracles through them. Many people came to accept Christ as their Lord and personal saviour. The sick received healing while many who were demon possessed received their deliverance.
In 1985, the fellowship changed its name from Bethlehem Evangelistic Group to the RESURRECTION POWER EVANGELISTIC MINISTRY.
It has seen tremendous growth since then, in 1989 the then Deputy Executive Director, Rev. Akwasi Asare Bediako and other ministers received the divine direction to begin a church to bring the together the numerous new believers who were not willing to join any of the then existing churches, hence the birth of the church the Living Bread Christian Centre.
In March 1990, the Lord called home the founder and the Executive Director of the fellowship, Evangelist Francis Akwasi Amoako since then the fellowship and the church have been under one leadership and have co-existed to compliment the effort of one another. The fellowship is the evangelistic wing and the church is the Christian body building wing of the same ministries.
