The International Central Gospel Church – ICGC – is an Evangelical, Charismatic Christian Church. It was officially inaugurated as a church on the 26 th of February 1984, in Accra, Ghana. The first meeting was held in a small classroom with an initial membership of just about twenty people.
From February 1984 to April 1986, the membership grew about one hundred and eighty(180) adults in regular attendance. The early meetings of the church were held in several facilities which included classrooms, a private residence, a public hall, a science laboratory, a mechanical workshop and a cinema theatre. In May 1986, the church settled in a rented scout hall – the Baden Powell Memorial Hall – which became its home for the next ten years.
This hall was renovated to enable it to accommodate the fast-growing membership of the church. During this ten-year period the membership rose to over 4,000. This period also saw aggressive missionary church planting activities with local assemblies established in almost all the major towns and cities of Ghana. Several other churches were also planted in cities in Europe and the United States.
The Calvary Temple of the International Central Gospel Church is part of the ministry of Dr. Mensa Otabil, who is the founder and the General Overseer of all the International Central Gospel Churches, and under the leadership of Rev. Anthony Cudjoe, the senior Pastor.
