Dr. CHARLES AND REV FAUSTINA MANTEY
Dr. Charles Mantey, founder and Senior Pastor of Disciples Revival Church felt God's calling upon his life after a divine encounter with God. Born on December 26, 1950 in Ghana, Dr. Mantey was raised in a family that was not Christian at the time.
In 1969, he met a friend who gave him a Bible. Dr. Mantey started reading the Word of God and for the first time in his life, he was led by the Holy Spirit to the book of 1John 5:21 which reads, "Little children, keep yourselves from idol." Armed with this passage, he destroyed all other spiritual protection he has sought from other source and surrended his life fully to Jesus.
Devoid of the voodoo protection and seemingly exposed to the affliction of the evil forces, Dr. Mantey feared for his life upon hearing a voice that threatened, "Now you have no protection, and I am going to kill you." This was soon followed by a flashing light and a soothing and reassuring voice that said, "Do not fear, you are not going to die. You will testify to people about what you have done; and you will carry my name to those in darkness in Ghana, Africa, and the whole world."
As years went by, Dr. Mantey bcame sensitive to God's calling upon his life; he instantly left all his earthly pursuit and aspirations to pursue God's will for his life. In 1979, he enrolled in Christian Service College in Kumasi, Ghana where he graduated with a Diploma in Biblical Studies. A program which also allowed him to complete his Diploma in Theology courses at the University of Ghana, Legon.
Dr. Mantey emigrated to Canada to continue his theological studies at Tyndale University College & Seminary and in 1994 graduated with Masters Degree in Divinity. After taking a break from his studies to give leadership to his church, he went on to complete his graduate studies and in 2012, he wasgranted the Doctor of Ministry degree at Tyndale University College & Seminary in Toronto, Canada. His other qualifications include: Certificate in Leadership Training from Haggai Institute, Singapore: and Certificate in Contemporary Christianity, London School of Contemporary Studies, Great Britain.
Dr. Mantey is a seasoned teacher and preacher of the Word of God. His ministry is accompanied by signs and wonders which has resulted in many people receiving their healing and deliverance; and the barren blessed with children.
This special anointing of the Holy Spirit upon his life has taken Dr. & Mrs. Mantey to Ghana, Britain, Singapore, Holland, U.S.A, South Africa, andGrenada to speak at Crusades, Conferences, Revival Meetings, and Christian Leadership meetings.
Rev Faustina Mantey is the founder and head of the Women's Ministries and the Riverside Prayer Ministry in Disciples Revival Church. Through her vision and leadership, many women have had their burdens lifted, and their bondagebroken. Most of these women testify of how their lives have been turned around with fruitful ministries and God's abundant blessings upon their lives.
Both Dr. Charles and Rev Faustina Mantey have been involved in full time ministry since 1982. Before coming to Canada, Dr. and Rev (Mrs.) Mantey founded Disciples Evangelistic Ministry in Ghana. This outreach ministry has now developed into a church called Disciples Revival Church with 18 branches across Ghana; and an orphanage that caters to the needs of 200 needy children in Kumasi, Ghana.
