“Even though I am a Bishop who majored in Theology and Biblical Counseling and hold an honorary doctorate degree in Divinity from the Collins University of Ohio in the USA, I am still not an angel. Yes, I’ve done things in the past that I feel terrible about, but today, everything related to my success I’ve done only by the grace of God” — Bishop Kofi Adonteng-Boateng.
Bishop Dr. Kofi Adonteng-Boateng of Divine Word International Ministries who was ordained Bishop in the U.S.A. in 2012 made the above disclosure to TheAfricanDream.net during an interview at his headquarters located on 6715 A Electronic Drive in Springfield, Virginia (VA) in the U.S.A.
“I am no angel my friend, I am just a human and very susceptible to temptations and follies like everyone else. I am however very thankful to God for the gift of the Holy Spirit which gives me the power to fight all negative energies and continue to resist sinning in my efforts to keep on devoting myself to my great commission of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ” Bishop Kofi Adonteng Boateng told TheAfricanDream.net
The Bishop who has faced a lot of criticisms and breakaways from some of his initial inner-core membership in the past relocated from Worcester, Massachusetts (USA) in April 2011 to the Washington DC area of Springfield in VA. Divine Word Ministries International is now one of the biggest African led ministries in the USA.
Meet Bishop Kofi Adonteng Boateng
Bishop Kofi Adonteng-Boateng who is originally from Ghana revealed to TheAfricanDream.net that “those times were hard times, but by the grace of God I have moved on to receive an invitation from the Methodist church in Ghana to be part of a conference in 2015 at Kumasi in Kwadaso.”
Today Divine Word International Ministries which began as a small prayer group (Divine Prayer Line) on a free conference phone line in Worcester, Massachusetts in 2009 that rapidly transformed into a full-fledged ministry with some 3,000 Church members now has over 10,000 believers on their prayer line network in the U.S.A. and globally.
As he gave reasons for the Church’s relocation, the Bishop said “we did have some amazing times and miracles in Massachusetts and received great support from the Ghanaian, African and other institutions from the communities there. We however feel the move to Springfield VA is divinely inspired and we are looking forward to doing more greater things here too.”
According to Samuel Doku on his blog — The Washington Journal — Bishop is blessed with the power to prophesy, to heal, and to teach. He delves into the bible [with expertise]; quoting the scriptures extemporaneously in support of his message for the day.
As a family man, Bishop Adonteng Boateng is married to Ewura Adonteng Boateng with 4 children. His ministry has a vibrant radio station and a station on Apple TV, a branch in Bronx New York since 2011 and an upcoming one starting May 2016 at Duluth in Georgia, U.S.A.
Early in 2016, the Bishop was in East London and South Africa for a crusade. His itinerary for the remainder of the year features travels to Dortmund, Germany for a church conference from July 8-10, a September London church conference and an October Tel Aviv religious conference for a large Ghanaian gathering; all in 2016 respectively.
The Bishop looks forward to not just taking care of the spiritual needs of people through Jesus Christ as always, but to also keep on reaching out to societies through his non-profit activities by actively engaging in charity and humanitarian work, granting scholarships to qualifying students in the Fairfax county of VA in U.S.A., and expanding globally.
