Meet The Late Apostle Felix Antwi, Father of VGMA Artiste Of The Year Diana Antwi Hamilton.


A missionary of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Felix Elvis Antwi was a pastor, a great preacher and an evangelist who was gifted. Apostle Antwi who was in the military before entering into Ministry toured various towns, cities and regions across the country Ghana doing spreading the gospel and planting churches. From the Volta Region to Brong Ahafo Region, Accra, Western Region and many other places including countries outside Ghana and preaching across the globe.


Apostle Antwi served as a National head of the Church of Pentecost in Sierra Leone as the first resident missionary. Then Pastor Felix Elvis Antwi arrived in Sierra Leone in September 1990. He took the church with great evangelical zeal to the Northern, Eastern and the Southern Provinces of Sierra Leone within a short time of his arrival in that country. He was quick to establish contact at the Millitary barracks because of his military background. More Assemblies were opened in Freetown and his wife Mrs Comfort Antwi strengthened the women's movement and developed a great prayer force with them. Apostle Antwi built the first chapel at Porti and went ahead to start the first school of the church. The church's social responsibility was visible in the society. During this period, he ventured even at the beginning of the rebel war to establish a church in Guinea.

By the early 1990s, the church was so well known in the Evangelical community that Apostle Antwi was invited to serve on the Executive Committee of the Evangelical fellowship of Sierra Leone.
