The Most Rev. Dag Heward-Mills is a Ghanaian Minister based in Accra, Ghana. He is the founder and Presiding Bishop of the United Denomination originating from the Lighthouse Group Of Churches. He is also a prolific author, conference speaker, evangelist, apostle, and theologian.
Bishop Dag Heward-Mills was ordained into the ministry in 1990 at the Victory Church, London, and consecrated as a Bishop in 1996, by the International Ministerial Council of Great Britain.
He has trained more than 1,980 pastors and 470 lay ministers worldwide. Radically involved in mission efforts, he has sent 485 missionaries and built over 400 church buildings worldwide.
He also serves on the board of Directors of Church Growth International and the Pentecostal World Fellowship. He is founder of the National Association of Charismatic and Christian Churches and served as its chairman until August 2003, when Steve Mensah of Christian Evangelistic Ministry (CEM) was elected Chairman for a two-year term as his successor. He is also the founder of the Ghana Charismatic Bishops Council.
Bishop Dag Heward-Mills has been involved in building multiple establishments over the years. One of the most notable features of Lighthouse Chapel International is the rapid production of building projects in several countries. The church currently has multiple church building projects, embracing the vision of 25,000 churches in 150 countries to invite more souls to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. There are currently over 400 physical church buildings, including the Qodesh headquarters in Ghana (this multi-structured building is one of the largest church complexes in Africa); a hospital, an orphanage, and numerous schools.
Heward-Mills founded the Lighthouse Chapel International church in 1987. He often states that God placed upon him the anointing to teach, and that led him to begin holding meetings in a classroom on his university campus that accommodated just a handful of people. As attendance steadily increased, larger and larger halls had to be used. In 1994, the church constructed a 3000-seater cathedral in Accra. However the congregation grew until finally, in 2006, he commissioned the construction of the one of the largest church complexes in Africa. Currently, attendance at his meetings has exceeded the capacity of this huge structure. Over the years Dag Heward-Mills’ also indoctrinated and inspired many of his members to become missionaries, pastors, and workers to help build the denomination into an internationally reputable ministry.
From the humble beginnings of meetings in a small classroom, there has certainly been astounding growth that continues to spread. Dag Heward-Mills has since planted over 2000 churches in 68 different countries worldwide. The Lighthouse Chapel International denomination has both acquired and built multiple buildings, including the Qodesh – its international headquarters. The Qodesh is one of the largest, ultramodern complexes in Africa.
The Bishop’s vision to encourage as many people as possible to work for God is reflected today in the many camps he holds across the world, it is also explained in the book titled Many Are Called. These camps have seen the birth of many “missionaries”, who made several sacrifices including giving up their jobs and livelihood and relocating themselves to different countries to start branches of LCI. Heward-Mills records the messages preached at these “camps” and offers them for sale in a compilation he calls “the Machaneh” — a compilation of all the camp messages.
Dag Heward-Mills and the Lighthouse Church are heavily involved in the raising, training, sending and supporting of missionaries to all corners of the globe. Dag Heward-Mills is marked by his strong emphasis on church planting and the spread of the Christian gospel through the sacrifice of Christians and obedience to God by ordinary men.
As well as being the head of a large denomination, Heward-Mills is also one of the best-selling authors in the Christian world today. He has written more than 40 books on several topics that are relevant especially for personal growth and success in the ministry.
His style of writing is notably simple and understandable, with a wealth of scriptures. The books include titles such as The Art of Leadership, The art of hearing, the renowned Loyalty and Disloyalty series of seven titles, the best-selling marriage counseling book Model Marriage and The Megachurch. His writings are now available in 27 languages including French, Russian, Portuguese and Spanish, and have been made accessible to millions of people worldwide. His works have been patronized by several church leaders of other denominations who claim to have tangibly benefited from key biblical insights in the books. The most popular of the books so far has been Loyalty and Disloyalty, which was accredited the Grand Award from the Ghana Christian Book Awards body in 2007. It is now one in the Loyalty series of seven books.
