A Membership of 250 to Nearly 5000 Worshipers
During this 5 year period, the church grew from a membership of 250 to nearly 5,000 worshipers.To effectively accommodate the large number of worshippers, three fully packed services were held every Sunday at 7:00am, 9:00am and 11:00am respectively. The sermon was translated into the Twi and Ewe local languages in the first two services respectively, with the third being an English service. Those who could not be seated inside the main hall participated in the services via closed-circuit TV outside where canopies had been mounted.
A Historic Migration
A historic move was made on November 4, 2000. Thousands of worshippers attended an All Night prayer vigil at the Blackmoore and Sons premises. Around 4am, they were led in a prayer march to Ahenfie, the newly acquired church property located near the Obetsebi Lamptey Circle on the Ring Road West a distance of about three (3) kilometres from the Blackmoore and Sons premises. Symbolically, it was a significant move, a crossing over from Egypt to the Promised Land.
The Land of Prophecy and Promise
Ahenfie is thus considered by all members of Royalhouse Chapel as a land of prophecy and promise.Contrary to the general perception of the public, Ahenfie is not synonymous with the umbrella name, Royalhouse Chapel which encompasses the church’s headquarters (Ahenfie) with its 26 different Ministries (groups) as well as all the other distinct organs incorporated under the umbrella name. These organs include Royalhouse Chapel’s 120 Local Assemblies, its 16 International Missions and their various departments, the media ministries, the church administration, the Christian Leadership College, as well as the Department of Social Services etc. The Social Services and Practical Ministry alone has a wide range of departments under it, these include, Royalhouse Chapel Schorlarship Foundation, The Compassion Ministry (Feed the Hungry, Rural Missions and Evangelism), the Marriage Counselling Department, the Children, Teens, Young Adults, Men, Women, Aged and Anglophone & Francophone Ministry amongst many.
