Originally from Ghana and coming from a Muslim background, Fergus Owusu–Boateng has worked as pastor in Ghana, Israel and London. His ministry stretches over 27 years within the Seventh-day Adventist Church. During his pastoral work in Israel, he was duly asked to serve as a departmental Director for the field in Israel.
In 2015, the South England Conference recognised his specific ministry and outreach to others in his role as Director of the AMR. At the last session of the South England Conference in September 2019, the Sabbath School Department was added to his portfolio.
Fergus studied at Newbold College of Higher Education, graduating with an MA in Pastoral Ministry. He says that his identity is woven around his passion for the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ, who revealed Himself to him when he was in darkness and brought him into His marvellous light.
Fergus and his wife Cecilia have two children, Kofi and Abena, who are essential parts of his overall ministry.
Fergus is excited about the return of Jesus to earth, but at the same time is passionate about the Kingdom of God here and now.
He values prayer immensely and considers it to be at the centre of his life - “It is like fire in my bones,” he says. He is a humble minister of the gospel, to which, he says, nothing compares.
