BISHOP CHARLES AGYINASARE

Charles Agyinasare (English pronunciation: / ɑdʒɪnəsɑ:ri / born 22 March 1962) is a Ghanaian Christian minister, international speaker, and author of several Christian books.

 He is the Founder of Perez Chapel International – a Pentecostal-Charismatic ministry. Dr Morris Cerullo remarked on him by stating, “It is very rare in the calling of God to see the apostolic, evangelistic, prophetical, pastoral, teaching call all manifested through one ministry. But there, it is – in Bishop Asare’s calling, we see the 5-fold ministry


Early Life and Education

Charles Yewurakow Agyinasare was born in Achiase, Ghana, on 22 March 1962, into a Catholic family. His parents were Staff Sergent Andrews Asare and Elizabeth Arthur.  He later changed his name to Agyinasare in 2011 following an Accra High Court decree.

Agyinasare stayed in Accra and went through primary school at the Weija Barracks Primary, and the Armed Forces Experimental School. Agyinasare was a child prodigy, and gained admission into St. Martin’s Secondary School at the tender age of 11.
There, he was overtaken by pressure from his colleagues who were much older than he and got caught up in what he calls “sin, revelry, alcoholism and drug addiction” and was a “women-chasing college freak”. He was later expelled from St. Martin’s.

In his search for answers and having a thirst for the supernatural, Agyinasare pra


cticed Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism for four years; subsequently fasted and prayed with Muslims in contemplation of converting to Islam. He later felt that none of these could satisfy him.

National Impact

In 2007 Agyinasare received a national award – the Member of the Order of the Volta (MV) – by former President John Agyekum Kufour, for his outstanding achievements in championing African excellence as a religious leader.

He is also a recognized national and religious leader. He served as the First Vice-President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council and was honoured for his excellence in Apostolic and Pastoral Leadership by the Global Excellence Award For Leadership 2010.
