Pastor Hayford Addokwei

Pastor Hayford Addokwei is founder of Hayford Addokwei Ministries International (HAMINS® Int.) and head pastor of the Liberty Central Gospel Church (LCGC®).

Charged with a vision embedded within his passion for Christ and His Kingdom, pastor Addokwei is committed to worshipping God through service to the Christian community and society. He does that by bringing the gospel of hope and relief to people, offering soul care, mentorship, and coaching where and whenever needed.

Pastor Addokwei is a Ghanaian-born German citizen. He spent the first half of his life in the capital, Accra, where he completed his basic education. Hayford pursued a four-year Automobile Engineering Training programme at the then-Ho Polytechnic Institute, now Ho Technical University, Ghana, from 1981 to 1985 and earned the City and Guilds of London Institute Certificates I & II. Furthermore, Hayford holds a certificate in Biblical Studies at the UPC Bible college, Ghana, a BCM at the college division of the Liberty Theological Seminary, Texas, USA, and a MATM at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, CA, USA.

In 1989, Pastor Addokwei migrated to Germany. He witnessed the tumbling down of the Berlin wall and shared in the subsequent historical moments as they unfolded. Besides the voluntary services he engaged in in the refugee camp near his workplace in Regensburg, Germany, pastor Addokwei served in various local and international churches and fellowships in diverse capacities. Among others, on February 25, 2000, he was called to serve on the Global 2000 Board of Elders of Morris Cerullo World Evangelism.


In the first week of January 1997, Pastor Addokwei was in the Anaheim Conference Hall, California, when the Lord spoke a very clear word to him: “Son, when you return to Germany, start the work for which I sent you there…” On arrival in Germany, Hayford began looking for a meeting place to start the church, having only his wife Theresia and his then 3-year-old daughter as members. On February 17, 1997, Hayford found and rented a place hourly. Four days after signing the contract, on February 21, 1997, the LCGC® was born with the first attendance of only eight people. Pastor Addokwei has since focused on serving the community, mentoring people, and coaching those who need this extra service to progress.

Pastor Addokwei is married to Theresia, a Bavarian native. They have two children. Since February 1997, they have taken on this passionate task of seeing others progress in their respective call fields and destinies. They have been fulfilling God´s mission to the world where and when they are led—one step, one soul, one family, and one community at a time. With Theresia, an active member and a translator for the multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, bilingual, and diverse church on his side, they are going strong in reaching the people of Germany, discipling the saints and imparting many lives.
