Daniel serves with Fullstature Missions International Ghana as the national missions director, ministering among the Konkombas, Nawuris, Basares, and Kotokolis (LRPGs’) in Ghana. He is the training and mobilization director of the Ghana Evangelical Missions Association (GEMA) and the Perspective Study Program.
He also leads Simply Mobilizing West Africa as the Global Region Coordinator and serves on the international leadership team. Daniel’s leadership roles with Global Mobilization Network (GMN), Send Africa Network (SAN), IPC, and International Prayer Connect bring him face-to-face with church leaders on many levels.
Daniel grew interested in the things of God; this led him to ask a Malam (Islamic scholar) to show him how to worship God as a Muslim. However, after a while, his father disallowed him from being baptized into Islam.
One night in school during prep hour, after a message from a visiting preacher, he responded to an altar call and gave my life to Christ in 1984. In 1993, he sensed that the Lord was leading him in a different direction, which led him to Fullstature Missions International that same year.
In 1994, he sensed the call of God upon his life to preach cross-culturally. As a result, he enrolled in Fullstature College of the Bible and Missions in Ibadan, Nigeria, the same year. He later graduated with a diploma in mission. He was sent in 1996, after his marriage to Rhoda, by Fullstature Missions International to pioneer the mission vision in Ghana.
For 19 years, he has been working among the people group known as the Konkombas in the Volta North of Ghana, now the Oti region.
In collaboration with the Bible League and Multiplication Network ministries, they have planted almost 60 churches. They have also collaborated with other mission agencies to bring medical missions to the people, drill boreholes in villages, and bring relief and mercy ministries through distributing clothes.
After serving in different communities, his mission work progressed in the Krachi East and its environs from 1999 to 2002. He took a break from the field and resumed in 2004 in the Nkwanta district.
He completed the mission college in 1995 and left with his wife for Ghana in 1996, at age 31. Since then, he has been a practicing missionary. His goal as a missionary is to help churches become missional in my country, challenge young people to be involved in cross-cultural missions, and help train and send missionaries in Ghana and the sub-region.
In 2013, after taking a Kairos course, he started engaging Christian leaders in different countries to help develop missional churches. So, I also serve as the coordinator for Simply Mobilizing International in West Africa.
He graduated with a Master of Arts in Intercultural Ministry Leadership from Bethany Global University in Minnesota, USA, in 2022. Daniel studied masters-level intercultural studies at MTPI Missionary Training Partners International in Abuja, Nigeria.
Daniel lives with Rhoda Oluwakemi Appiah in Accra, Ghana. They have two girls and a boy.
