In my early professional life, I taught at Achimota School; have been acting Chief Inspector of Schools; and Ghana National Recruiter for American Peace Corps. Later, I worked in London as Chief Project Officer (Education) at the Commonwealth Secretariat; served in Paris as Chief of Section at UNESCO; was UNESCO Director and Representative to Nigeria and ECOWAS.

I have been a member of the Church of Pentecost since 1971, and have been involved in Church planting in the United Kingdom, France, and Nigeria. On my retirement from the United Nations, I joined the Bible College in 2001 and later, PUC, as lecturer, and later as STEE Coordinator until June 2017 when the Advancement Office was created.
