Early Life and History
Dag Heward-Mills has had a genuine passion for soul winning which began right in the early days of his ministry. He has developed from a zealous young preacher who gave his life to Christ as a teenager, a medical student who conducted dawn broadcasts amongst nursing students, to a well respected international healing evangelist who holds campaigns, with hundreds of thousands of people in attendance. His zeal has not waned over time, but has continued to grow stronger. He attended Achimota Secondary School where he had his O and A level after which he qualified into the University of Ghana Medical School. The call of God on his life was recognized even while a student.
Lighthouse Chapel International
The hallmarks of his calling to evangelism and soul winning were seen in 1988 when God led him to start the Lighthouse Chapel International church. The vision of the church was to be a lighthouse to the lost, leading many to salvation in Jesus Christ. Dag Heward-Mills firmly believed that the church would have the scope of reaching beyond Ghana and Africa, for that matter. Over time and by the grace of God he is now one of the few African pastors sending out missionaries from Africa to the world, with over 1200 branches of the Lighthouse Chapel International churches in over 58 countries worldwide.
Prolific Author and International Conference Speaker
God graciously ushered him into a season of international recognition and he has become widely known for his books ministry. Dag Heward-Mills has authored several books including 36 international best-sellers. An advocate on the subject of loyalty in the church, his international best seller ‘Loyalty and Disloyalty’ published in 2000, has remained his most popular message and most requested preaching subject.
He has become a seasoned, renowned and very sought after international speaker in conferences like the Church Growth International and the Pentecostal World Fellowship Conferences, to mention a few. He is well known and has become a favourite for his down to earth, simply presented yet penetrating messages.
He also hosts his own annual Iron Sharpeneth Iron Work of Ministry conference for pastors and church leaders in Accra, Ghana, for pastors and church leaders. These conferences have grown over the years and currently attract thousands of ministry leaders from about 42 countries. Additionally he founded a bible school - The Anagkazo Bible Schools, to train men and women of God in the practical work of the ministry.
Healing Jesus Crusades
In 2003, Dag Heward-Mills started the Healing Jesus Campaigns (HJC), then known as crusades. This was a purely evangelistic arm of the ministry and the first HJC was held in Accra in September 2003, with approximately 2000 people in attendance and 500 souls being saved. God had no doubt called him to go beyond the church work, to minister to a wider audience. Healing Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills, set out therefore to reach the lost through outdoor campaigns.
Regardless of various seasons of challenges, the Evangelist has held 67 crusades in over 41 towns and villages, in over 10 countries in Africa. In many places where the HJC has taken place, the local people had never seen an event of that size. Some had never even heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Across a span of 10 years, Evangelist Dag has become one of the most well known evangelists of our time winning over 8,500,000 souls through the Healing Jesus Campaigns, to the glory of God. The early campaigns were focused in Ghana but the campaigns soon moved throughout the entire West African region (to countries like Mali, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Niger, etc) making a tremendous impact in some well known Islamic strongholds, as souls were saved, the blind saw, the lame walked, the sick were healed and as the Lord backed His word with power.
