David Akpesey is the evangelist in charge of the Papaase Christian Church among the Agona people group in the Central region of Ghana, who are mostly farmers and traders. About 55% of the people there are idol worshippers, Christians 35%, and Muslims 10%. He has been the evangelist of the church since 1995, baptizing 350 converts. The church has started a Christian school, now at the 6th-grade level and with about 200 children.
