Work and Research

My research focus in on Pentecostalism and its influence on the socio-economic and religious sphere in Africa with special reference to Ghana. I do also sometime focus on issues on leadership, Religion and Development, Religion and Health, Religion and Human Rights as well as Religion and Media. The rise in African Pentecostalism is one of the most important and significant events in religious studies in Africa and there is an important research gap in areas of theological, anthropological and social studies to describe and understand this phenomenon. This project brings the expertise of a West-African scholar into the equation and has increased interest and contribute towards a better understanding of Pentecostalism in Africa.
