THE JENNINGS JAZZ,
e-Bulletin of Brian and Comfort Jennings, Serving Jesus’ Kingdom through Education and
Action in Ghana, Supported by the Fellowship of Churches of Christ based at Ghana Christian
University College, Accra, Ghana, West Africa
Ransford Ayitey, the former Elder for Evangelism at the Asbury-Dunwell Church has begun a church plant
on the porch of his house in Kasoa, a suburb on the west of Accra. Last year Comfort and I joined a team to
lead their first celebration of the Lord’s Supper. On the last Sunday
of April we returned and I (Brian) conducted their first wedding!
Ransford Ayitey, asked me to bless the marriage of two of the
members of the Church. I preached from Genesis Chapter 2 about the
joy that should come from the marriage relationship for the couple,
their children, their families, their friends, and the Church as the
husband and wife serve each other in love. After the message I had
the great privilege to bless the union of Teiko and Ivy Soroko by
praying over their rings and having them share communion with each
other as husband and wife. During our last visit to the site we prayed
over some land that the Church was hoping to buy. We learnt during
our time with the Church that they had successfully agreed on terms
for their purchase!
The last two months have also been a very busy time for Comfort.
She has completed the Entrepreneurship Training Project funded
by the US State Department and organised an ICT ‘Train the
Trainer’ programme supported by Intel. From 26th
will be visiting the the US for two weeks at the invitation of Ten
Thousand Villages, a US based Christian Fair Trade company,
who are one Comfort’s main commercial partners. Comfort will be
making a presentation to their store managers about how Ele Agbe
(Comfort’s company) supports women in rural Ghana through the
manufacture and export of Shea butter cosmetics and recycled
NEWS ABOUT GHANA CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE

Three weeks ago GhanaCU received a bill. Usually, we are not too keen on bills, we just get on and pay
them and pray that we have enough funds to meet the next one! But we were delighted to receive this one as
it was the bill from the University for Development Studies based northern Ghana for affiliation for our B.A.
Development Management! Now we have a route for the students in our School of Development
Management to gain their degrees. We are very grateful for all of you who supported us in prayer in this
matter. The Lord has been very gracious!
Strategic Planning Seminars
From the 22nd
of May the staff of GhanaCU devoted themselves
to seeking the Lord’s face for the future through prayer and planning.
During this time we explored and reviewed the meaning of our mission
and vision statements. Considered our internal strengths and weaknesses
and the opportunities and challenges that confronts us. Finally, we spent
two days putting together some proposals for our leadership team to put
together in a strategic plan in our behalf. This was a very fruitful time of
reflection and discussion. I was responsible for facilitating the thinking
