Early life

Elvis was born in Tema but relocated to Kumasi with his family where he had his basic school education. He completed Adventist Senior High School before proceeding to pursue a BSc. Biological Science at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. He also has an MSc. Religious Studies from the Central University.


Elvis started his career as a biology teacher at Tema Technical Secondary School after completing his undergraduate education at the KNUST and later worked shortly with Acacia Health Insurance before his call to start a church.

After experiencing a spiritual visitation in 2015 while battling a disease that nearly claimed his life, Elvis started Grace Mountain Ministry with 32 members. The church currently has locations in Madina and Kumasi.
