Perez University will be among top 10 in 8 years - Agyin-Asare

Perez University College will be one of the top 10 tertiary institutions in Ghana in eight years from now, its Chancellor Bishop Charles Agyinasare has said.

The university, formerly Pan African Christian University College in the Central Region, was acquired by Perez Chapel International in November 2015.

The institution and its two schools are duly accredited by the National Accreditation Board of Ghana since 2007.

The School of Theology has affiliation with the Trinity Theological Seminary (TTS) and the School of Business is affiliated to the University of Cape Coast. These mentor institutions have the responsibility of overseeing the courses, training and certification of the respective schools.

The university’s board of directors include: Dr Agyin-Asare, Dr Mensa Otabil, Professor Omane-Antwi, Professor Asamoah Gyadu, Professor Addo Obeng, Dr Kotei Dzani, Mr Francis Ashinyo, Mr Sylvester Mensah, Dr Mrs Vivian Amoako, Dr Emmanuel Saboro, Professor Amoa Awua, Bishop Dr Prince Baah and Mrs Grace Dolphy.

It is located at Gomoa Pomadze-Winneba along the Winneba-Swedru highway, about a kilometre from the Winneba roundabout (Junction). It plans to add on other campuses in the coming years.

Bishop Agyin-Asare told the congregation of Perez Chapel International in Sunday, 2 April that Perez University College that: “For us as a church, this university is not a commercial venture because in the first place it is registered as an NGO. For us, it’s a ministry God has given to us.”

“Recently I was praying and the Lord said to me: ‘Charles because you have a burden for the youth, I gave you this university, I want Youth Explosion to become permanent that is why I gave you this university. So, it’s not a money-making venture, in fact, most of the private universities in Ghana are not making money anyway, no matter the fees they are charging,” he added.

Dr Agyin-Asare noted that Perez University will set high moral standards worth emulating.

“Today when you look at the students coming out of the universities, in the universities there is occultism, they have one thing or the other, God has called us to set up a school that is free of occultism, homosexuality, lesbianism, students that are coming out that are corruption-free.”

“We have given ourselves eight-and-a-half years, in eight-and-a-half years, we are going to be among the top ten universities in Ghana, it is going to happen,” Bishop Agyinasare promised.
