PASTOR CALEB @ 50
-Jubilee of radio pastor
Pastor Caleb Yaw Mensah was born on Thursday, December 28, 1970, at Kwabrafoso in Obuasi municipality in the Ashanti region of Ghana to the late Kwesi Mensah and Ekua Essoun of Esikuma in the Central region.
He completed elementary school at Amponyansi in 1985 and gained admission to Adisadel College in Cape Coast in 1987 but due to the death of his father hard times hit him to to make him drop out of the college the same year.
Determined Caleb learnt to shave hair to become a professional barber.
Pastor Caleb accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Personal Savior in 1990 and became born again into the Christian family at the Pillar of Faith Ministries in Obuasi. His fervent love for the Lord compelled him to stop barbering to respond to the call of God.
In 1992, he attended the School of Missionaries which is the Bible School department of the Pillar of Faith Ministries and completed in 1994.
Pastor Caleb continued his ministerial training at Shiloh Bible School (now Archbishop Addae Theological Institute, AATI) in Kumasi from 1994 to 1995.
Pastor Caleb found Joyce Adu Gyamfi who became his wedded wife in April 1996. Mrs. Joyce Mensah has been very supportive since day one and has contributed immensely towards his achievements and aspirations to serve the Lord. God has blessed them with a daughter, Holiana Adoma Mensah, who has completed Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Due to his dedication to duty and vision, Pastor Caleb was elevated to become head pastor of Pillar of Faith Ministries central church and subsequently became the deputy general overseer in 2003.
In 2001 Pastor Caleb was invited to be part of a social programme, “Sesa Wo Suban” (Change Your Habit), on one of the outstanding local radio stations in Obuasi, Shaft 98.1Mhz, but little did he know that his contributions and impact would compel the management of the station, led by Victoria Owusu, to employ him as a radio pastor. By dint of his leadership qualities he was appointed as the head of programmes and has, since, held the fort till now.
“God told me on 1st April 2016 to leave Pillar of Faith Ministries to start Heaven Glory Church which I’m the general overseer of,” Pastor Caleb Yaw Mensah told this source.
By virtue of the huge task and vision God has given to Pastor Caleb, he is improving himself academically by pursuing a degree programme at the Christian Service University College in Kumasi.
“By the Grace of God I say Ebenezer; this is how far the Lord has brought me to celebrate my 50th birthday to the Glory of God,” all-joy Pastor Caleb.
