About Ghana Baptist University College
A Baptist Christian university college called the Ghana Baptist University College is situated in Kumasi, Ghana. The National Accreditation Board has granted the university accreditation. The Ghana Baptist Convention is connected.
The Ghana Baptist Convention in Kumasi launched the school in 2006. It was given 100 acres of land in Ejura in 2022 to use for the development of a branch campus. Five young men began receiving pastoral training from Dr. William A. Poe, a missionary from the Southern Baptist Convention in the USA, in his garage at Amakom in 1956. Asokore Mampong’s secondary school and the pastors’ training school were combined by the Baptist Church in 1958 to form Sadler Baptist College. Pastors’ training school was moved to Abuakwa in 1961 after being split off from the secondary school and developed into a full-fledged theological seminary there.
The school’s name underwent several revisions until the Ghana Baptist Theological Seminary was chosen as its present moniker. The Ghana Baptist Convention decided to start a university college after fifty years of theological study (1956–2006). Under the direction of Rev. Professor Samuel Nyarko Boapeah, the University College was established on Saturday, November 25, 2006, and given the name Ghana Baptist University College.
The former Ghana Baptist Theological Seminary’s School of Theology and Ministry, the School of Nursing, the School of Business Administration, and the School of Art and Social Sciences Education at the Amakom Campus are the four schools that have been established since the institution became a university college.
