Rev. Dr. Simon Bamalong Asore was elected General Superintendent of Assemblies of God, Ghana in 1986. He was the second indigenous leader of the Church, the Church experienced tremendous growth under his leadership through the nationwide evangelistic campaigns dubbed, “Decade of Harvest” from 1990 to 2000.
This brought about immense growth and development in the Church. Examples are the establishment of many churches, training of more Pastors, and establishment of the third Bible College in 1988 at Kumasi. The tenure of Rev. Dr. Asore is believed to be one of the brightest in the history of Assemblies of God, Ghana.
Under his leadership churches were planted in every town and village. During this period, the Church in Ghana also engaged in missionary work in the following countries to reach the black community largely and the indigenous people. They were Italy, Israel, Canada, USA, UK, and Gambia, amongst others. Rev. Dr. Asore served the Church as General Superintendent from 1986 to 2002.
Rev. Asore also served God and his country in many capacities among them are the President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charistimastic Council and Member of Council of State during former President J. J. Rawlings regime.
Baba as we affectionately called him was a great leader and a blessing to his generation. He served Assemblies of God, his country and humanity with utmost integrity and passion. You shall forever be in our memories.
Baba, Rest In Peace!
