In his brief remark at the event, Prophet Gideon Danso, Global Lead Pastor said, “We believe salvation is threefold; We are saved, being saved and shall be saved, while we here we believe people must be transformed, impacted and blessed”.
“We are leading the way and focusing on the church’s primary assignment which is touching lives, making a difference, feeding the poor and giving back to the underprivileged. We want to be a channel of blessing, a bridge of hope, and a connection to touch the lives of people. In understanding the challenges faced by individuals and families in our communities, Empowerment Worship Centre embarked on an ambitious undertaking to address some critical gaps in access to healthcare and education. Through the collaborative efforts of our dedicated congregation, volunteers, and community partners, we have made significant strides in improving the lives of thousands.

LIFE CHECK’s annual medical support initiative has enhanced the overall well-being of our community’s underserved population. It provides a free and accessible medical platform, equipped with highly skilled healthcare professionals who provide essential primary care and preventive services.
This holistic approach to healthcare has empowered community members to take control of their health and receive necessary treatment and medication. Through these healthcare screenings, our medical practitioners have successfully detected and addressed underlying health concerns, thus preventing potential future complications, said Prophet Gideon Danso, Global Lead Pastor, Empowerment Worship Centre (EWC).
