CHRISTIAN SERVICE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
CHRISTIAN SERVICE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
About: he college began as a merger of two visions in January 1974. A group of Ghanaian Christians had a vision of an interdenominational, evangelical institution of a high academic standard, which would train men and women for all types of Christian Ministry. The second group comprised expatriate missionaries who had a vision of an institution to train workers from the well-established church in southern Ghana for a thrust into northern Ghana and neighboring countries where the church was small. Evangelical Christianity in Ghana in the late 1960s and 1970s was characterized, among other things, by intimate interaction and collaboration and blurring of denominational, mission and group distinctions. The Worldwide Evangelization for Christ (WEC), which was one of the missionary groups in the second group of missionaries, had acquired property in Kumasi on which they had built four dwelling houses and a radio studio with plans to construct a large building to serve as the beginning of a training college. Soon the two visions merged. In October 1974, the first residential classes started with four students and the college went from strength to strength and has now become an evangelical Christian university college.

ACCRA COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
ACCRA COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
About: History Medical education in Ghana started in 1962 with the establishment of the University of Ghana Medical School. To meet the growing demand for doctors by the Ghanaian population, the School of Medical Sciences in KNUST was set up in 1975 to train doctors and other health professionals. This was followed by the establishment of the University for Development Studies (UDS) School of Health Sciences in 2006 to train doctors with a focus on helping to solve the developmental problems in the North of Ghana. In 2009, the University of Cape Coast also set up a medical school with the aim of supplementing the medical education currently provided. Plans are also underway at the University of Health and Allied Sciences, in the Volta Region, to set up a medical school to train doctors for the nation. However, all of these schools currently graduate only about 400 doctors a year that means that many very qualified Ghanaian candidates are turned away. The Accra College of Medicine seeks to begin to plug this hole by admitting 60 of such students each year. Vision:TO BECOME A LEADER IN MEDICAL EDUCATION IN GHANA AND AFRICA.

HERITAGE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
HERITAGE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
About: Heritage Christian College (HCC) is a higher educational institution sponsored by the Churches of Christ. It has its roots in the establishment of the National Bible Institute (NBI), a two-year preacher training school established in January 1982 by the Nsawam Road Church of Christ, Ghana, to train gospel ministers. Daniel Ampadu-Asiamah served as the pioneer Director of NBI until December 1984 when he moved to Togo as a missionary. Following that, Dan L. McVey, then resident American missionary served as NBI Director until June 1999 when Samuel Twumasi-Ankrah was appointed as Principal of NBI. In 2001, Twumasi- Ankrah’s proposal to transform NBI into an accredited liberal arts college received an enthusiastic support by the oversight elders of the Nsawam Road Church, and based on their wise counsel, the then National Bible Institute was integrated into the Heritage Christian College system in December 2001. Thus began the long process of developing HCC to become an accredited Christian university college affiliated with the Churches of Christ. Through the generosity of several individuals and congregations in Ghana and the United States, HCC was able to purchase a piece of land at Afiaman, Accra, and develop key infrastructure as well as distinctive academic programmes which were required for the grant of accreditation by the government of Ghana. In February 2012, HCC received affiliation status from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST), Kumasi; a mentorship status which by law is required in order that KNUST shall award certification to HCC graduates till HCC eventually becomes an academic institution chartered by the President of Ghana. Finally, in March 2015, the National Accreditation Board of Ghana granted HCC both institutional and programme accreditation certificates. A particular mention ought to be made of the inestimable contributions made by certain groups of people as a result of which HCC has obtained its reputable accreditation status: Douglas & Margaret Boateng who paid for the cost of the land that serves as HCC campus; George Chisholm and the Traverse City Church of Christ, Michigan, whose initiative and sacrifices made it possible to raise the funds needed for the construction of the initial HCC buildings; Deon & Susan Fair who along with others set up the HCC Foundation and continue to provide financial, technical and academic support; Shane & Melissa McClung whose continued support remains pivotal ; and the Nsawam Road Church of Christ, Accra, Ghana whose support and oversight role is the bedrock of HCC
