Meet Ben Sachie, the inspiring Team Leader of AE Ghana
Bernard Owusu Sachie, Team Leader of AE Ghana, has been serving at African Enterprise since 2004.
Born in 1965, Ben lived with his aunt and uncle, and did manual farm labour until the age of 10, when he was able to attend school for the first time. Ben recalls his first public Scripture reading in primary school, which was from Jeremiah chapter 1:
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
After committing his life to Christ in high school, Ben felt called to Christian ministry. Describing himself as a “nervous person” who prefers “committing myself to do background work, rather than to be put forward”, Ben was encouraged by these words, also from Jeremiah chapter 1:
“Do not say, ‘I am too young’. You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you”.
And Ben has done just that.
After completing high school, Ben joined a fellowship that conducted rural evangelism and planted churches.
He then completed a Diploma and Bachelor’s Degree in Theology, and pastored a church for 12 years.
He has also served in multiple leadership roles, such as the Administrator for Ghana’s Bible Training Centre for Pastors, Secretary of Ghana’s Evangelism Committee and coordinator for several pastors’ conferences and evangelical crusades, including Ghana’s Franklin Graham Festival.
Ben feels privileged to have served AE since 2004, when he first coordinated an AE mission.
“Working for AE has been a blessing to me. I have seen a lot of lives transformed by the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ… I believe that our gracious Lord is always on the move to accomplish His plan of redemption. He really has better things for us, and yet only together with us would they be made perfect.”
Ben Sachie has chosen to partner with the God who continues to work out His perfect plan, through us. The God who knew him “before he was born”.
