Feden Church

views updated

Feden Church (Akan, ‘children of Eden’). Formerly Eden Revival Church. A Ghanaian independent church founded by Yaw Charles Yeboa-Korie (b. 1938), a Presbyterian secondary school teacher whose ill-health vanished after prayer, fasting, visionary experiences, and Bible study. In 1962 he founded an ancillary healing society, the Garden of Eden, at Nsawam, but his leadership qualities and travels abroad led to expansion and to the founding of Eden Revival Church, which became a member of the Ghanaian Council of Churches in 1970, and through a dream revelation became the Feden Church in 1975.
