Why Pastor Agyemang is Growing In Popularity

Recently, a Christian leader named Pastor Agyemang Elvis has grown in popularity much to the surprise of many Ghanaians. He is the founder and senior pastor of Grace Mountain Ministries.

One factor that has made him famous is his live stream called Alpha Hour. The live streams are centred around holding an hour-long prayer session where audiences can tune in, watch and participate in the prayer sessions. They pray on various relevant topics such as academic excellence, acquisition of jobs, promotions, healing from illnesses, etc.

Pastor Agyemang delivers this service on two main streaming social media platforms, thus Facebook and YouTube. Each Alpha Hour live stream session boasts 70 thousand plus views and his popularity keeps growing day by day. Below are three main reasons why Pastor Agyemang is growing massively in popularity and influence.

1. He use new forms of technology to his advantage

There was a time when pastors utilized traditional forms of media such as radio and television to reach a larger audience. Pastor Mensah Otabil was an early adopter of using this strategy in Ghana as his Sunday service was televised on TV3, then other charismatic church leaders adopted the strategy of setting up their television stations. Over time the radio programs and television stations have become saturated with pastors.

Pastor Agyemang however mainly focuses on using new forms of mass communication thus YouTube and Facebook and utilizes their streaming service. The advantage of using those platforms is the convenience it provides to his audience as they simply need any of the applications to join.

2. He is perceived as more authentic compared to other Christian leaders

Over time Pastors within the country are increasingly being perceived as disingenuous. Most Ghanaians are perceiving that some pastors are in their line of work mainly for money. Pastor Elvis however is perceived as more authentic as you can see and feel that he offers his prayer sessions with the hope of changing lives.

In conclusion, Pastor Agyemang is growing in popularity because he has incorporated new forms of media and is reaching out to more people. His prayer sessions also come across as more genuine compared to those of pastors who would charge you in the name of a "consultation fee".
