OUR HISTORY

In Edmonton, Canada

In 1998 Florence Obeng (currently the Head Pastor of Grace Fountain Gate Chapel, Edmonton) joined the Fountain Gate Chapel Sunyani, Ghana. Due to her zeal and desire for the Lord, she was appointed as deaconess and served until she relocated to Canada. Florence Obeng moved to Canada in 1999 where she quickly joined a church and served faithfully in Quebec until she moved to Edmonton, Alberta in 2005.  In the spring of 2007, with the apostolic anointing and the desire to win souls for the Kingdom of God, she was led by the Holy Spirit to plant the first Fountain Gate Chapel in Canada also known as Grace Fountain Gate Chapel International Edmonton. As a part of Fountain Gate Chapel ministries worldwide, the branch is connected and works collaboratively with the central presbytery. Currently, the church in Edmonton worships on a weekly basis focusing on the needs of all people, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and raising a lively church which is connected to God (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

The church Fountain Gate Chapel, was birthed as an idea of high conviction in the heart of Rev. Joseph Eastwood Anaba, a Pharmacy graduate of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science And Technology Kumasi, Ghana. He believed that ancestral worship and its concomitants – superstition, ignorance, diseases and poverty-could not be the divine purpose for his people.
 
NINTAM (Northern Deliverance In Tears Ministry) which means Tears in the Frafra dialect was the acronym for, the full name of the Ministry.The NINTAM Ministry after about 1½ years of intercessory emphasis believed that God was leading the ministry to another ministerial emphasis. The name Broken Yoke Foundation was chosen to give expression to the new direction of spiritual emphasis. An aggressive move of the Holy Spirit to break the yokes of the people of the Land released an amazing dimension of the anointing.
The present name Fountain Gate Chapel became necessary again for the church to depict yet another phase in the life of the church- when the evangelistic and prophetic role of the ministry produced people who had to settle down as thriving churches to water the lands where they were found as supernatural fountains.
