Elvis Eben-Baffour who is mostly called Pastor Elvis was born on June 4th 1968. He accepted Christ in January 1983 at High School. He joined the ministry of Rev Ransford Obeng, the Calvary Charismatic Centre, in 1990 at the University of Science and Technology where he was studying to become an Estate Manager, and has since remained a member and a Pastor.
In 1992, Pastor Elvis responded to the call of God to serve as a missionary to the nations of the world beginning from the Northern part of Ghana. A call he happily accepted and which was confirmed by his Pastor.
In September 1999, through the leadership of his Pastor, Rev Ransford Obeng, Pastor Elvis had the opportunity to undertake a Pastoral Leadership Program (PLP) at the Prestigious Asia Theological Center for evangelism and Missions in Singapore. This move to Singapore gave Pastor Elvis the opportunity to meet and know Rev Dr Rick Seaward and that has undoubtedly broadened and sharpened his heart for missions.
After returning to Ghana in March 2000, Pastor Elvis established M’Zion Training Centre for leadership development and started planting churches all within one month.
After just a month of this project, there was an urgent need for Pastor Elvis to take up a six month Pastoral role in Abidjan.
After a successful mission in Abidjan, Pastor Elvis was asked again to undertake a rescue mission in New York, United States of America in December 2001. The New York mission rather lasted 11 years culminating into planting churches in New York City and Chicago Illinois.
At the verge of planting the Gaithersburg Maryland church, Pastor Elvis sensed a more greater calling to return to Ghana and fulfill a mandate for God. This call came at the time Pastor Elvis and family felt well settled after years of putting people and God above their personal comfort in the summer heat of New York, and the bitter winter snow of Chicago.
Upon their return to Ghana, Pastor Elvis was handed a church that had suffered a breakaway, with only few members most of which were uninspired or despondent. Pastor Elvis accepted the challenge and prophesied that through that church the whole of Accra will be populated with Christians, and missionaries will be sent to all parts of the world as in the days of old.
This led to the birth of what has become known as the Accra Church Project ( ACP), which is planting churches everywhere today.
Today, Pastor Elvis believes God has given him the medium through the Saving Jesus Campaigns to take the gospel to the marketplace, to the high streets and highways, and to towns and villages where the gospel has not yet impacted.
Pastor Elvis is married to his lovely wife Edwina who has stood by his side everywhere in the world since they met at the University in 1992. They are blessed with three sons, Elvis Jr, Ellis and Edwin and all three are very active in ministry with them.
