Pastor Kwame is a passionate Methodist who has served at various churches in the United States and in Ghana. As a senior in high school, he was nominated as the students’ chaplain of his school. While pursuing his associate degree in marketing, he had the privileged of serving as president of the on-campus branch of the Scripture Union and later was nominated as prayer coordinator for the Ghana Methodist Students Union branch of his university.

In the United States, he found his Christian home at New Life International United Methodist Church in Fairfax and Alexandria.

He authored a book titled, Who Will Teach Me These About Life?.

His career has spanned from working as a marketing manager for a mineral bottled water company to information technology systems administrator. As a marketer, he worked on media and publicity relations, corporate affairs, and customer relations with a side interest in radio presenting. This career path helped to develop his social and people’s skills and to better engage and connect with people. He presently has a full-time IT job as a systems administrator with a federal agency.
