The birth of

Christian Outreach Fellowship

At a Scripture Union Easter House Party (Retreat) in 1974 the course of evangelization in Ghana was forever altered. Christian church leaders met and on this historical occasion came to the realization that something drastic had to be done if the people of Ghana were ever to be reached for Christ. From this meeting came the idea of a Ghanaian missionary sending an organization that would reach out throughout the country and evangelize the unreached people groups of Ghana living in deprived area. This vision was realized through the formation of Christian Outreach Fellowship (COF).

The Organization

Christian Outreach Fellowship (COF) is an indigenous non-denominational, Ghanaian Mission agency founded in April, 1974 with the mandate to reach people who have little or no access to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. To this end, we work in very deprived communities sharing the Bread of Life on one hand and helping in community development on the other hand.

The ministry’s head office is located at Mampong-Akwapim in the Eastern Region of Ghana with an office staff of four led by the Executive Director.

From a humble beginning of 6 pioneer indigenous missionaries, COF ministry currently has a workforce of 168 missionaries serving mainly in the Northern Ghana among a total of 17 people groups namely; Fulani (Fufulde), Jula, Ligbi, Kotokoli, Birifor, Lobi, Wala, Tamprusi, Mamprusi, Kokomba, Kasem, Gonja, Frafra, Kusaal, Builsa, Dagaaba, and Dagomba. These missionaries have planted hundreds of churches since our inception.


Planting churches among the unreached through evangelism, discipleship and social action and instilling a mission DNA in the Ghanaian Church to reach the unreached.
