We endeavour not to just impart information but also to help these lay preachers
expound the word of God with accuracy, confidence and passion while applying it practically
to our African context.
Towards this end, we aim to encourage a three-fold attitude towards the Bible;
Reading and studying it responsibly
Living it practically
Teaching it faithfully as God’s Word in our own words to our world.
Hence the acronym ‘RELITE’.
“For Ezra had set his heart to study the laws of the Lord and to do it and teach
his statutes and rules in Israel”
What we docontinued
The ministry also runs discipleship training in small groups on weekdays which is
open to the entire University community. Here, young Christians (beginners) are taken
through fifteen lessons on the basics of the Christian faith. Maturing Christians
are taken through lessons such as becoming like Jesus, Godliness etc. The aim of
these studies is to impart Christ–likeness to the participants and then encourage
them to pass this on to others. (2 Timothy 2:2)
Every year, in the month of January, RELITE hosts its students on the University
of Ghana campus after the Christmas and New Year festivities for a two-week residential
During this time, visiting lecturers from the UK and other countries take the students
through various Biblical themes aimed at making them more effective at handling the
various genres of the Bible.
