The Board of Directors of Ghana Christian Mission has an important and exciting announcement to make.
As you all know well, the seed of cross-cultural evangelism was planted in GCM Executive Director Enoch Nyador’s heart during his days of ministerial training at Ghana Christian College and Emmanuel School of Religion. The seed was watered by the late Dr. Robert Reeves, former Executive Director of Fellowship of Associates of Medical Evangelism (FAME), who met him and his wife, Dr. Lydia Glover-Nyador, in Johnson City in 1985 and agreed to partner with them in medical missions in Ghana.
Ghana Christian Mission incorporated in Ghana in 1987 under the name Fellowship of Associates of Medical Evangelism Ghana (FAME Ghana). FAME mentored and served as forwarding agent in the United States for the ministry until 2007 when Ghana Christian Mission obtained its own status as a 501(c)3 non-governmental organization in Indiana.
After 33 fruitful and God-honoring years, Enoch has decided to step down as executive director at the end of March 2021. On April 1, 2021, Wisdom Nyador will assume the role of executive director and carry on this fine and important work. Enoch has been mentoring and training Wisdom for the past year and will continue doing so through March. The Board of Directors is absolutely confident that Wisdom is well-prepared and will lead the mission forward into the future with passion and integrity.
Enoch will not simply retire, though. His passion for the work remains strong and vibrant. He will (God willing) bring Wisdom to meet as many of our donor churches as possible in the middle of 2021. After a time on sabbatical to rest and refresh, Enoch will begin a new role in developing partnerships and donors for the work in Ghana. Although Wisdom will become your primary Ghanaian contact beginning April 1, Enoch will continue to support the work by serving in this development role.
Enoch affirms his successor: “I am convinced that God has called Wisdom to serve as the new leader with integrity to take Ghana Christian Mission to the next level. He has a passion for saving lost souls, serves boldly but with humility, and is willing to learn more. His added assets are youthful energy and drive as well as top-level information technology competency. He is an excellent communicator. I endorse Wisdom with all my heart.”
