Most Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah Biography and Educational Background

Sam Korankye Ankrah was born on the 23rd of February, 1960 to J. O. Ankrah and Victoria Ziddah. He is the 22nd child in a polygamous family of 24 children and the fifth child of his mother. His mother, being a member of the Presbyterian church had him baptized as Samuel.

Sam Korankye Ankrah attended Accra High School and Saint John’s Grammar Secondary School in Accra. While in school, he got inspired to pursue a career in religion following a visit by the evangelistic group Joyful Way Incorporated.

Sam later gained admission to study at the University of Ghana, where he started the Showers of Blessing Incorporated (SOBI) evangelistic ministry in 1984.  He also holds certificates in Management and Entrepreneurship from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) and Christian Leadership, from Haggai Institute in Singapore.


Korankye Ankrah travelled to the Netherlands (Holland) for his studies. During his stay at the Northwestern Europe country, he had a spiritual experience on 19 June 1991, where God told him to return to ministry full-time in Ghana.

Prior to his return from Holland in November 1992, he had given his wife, Rev. Mrs Rita Korankye Ankrah the approval to start Sunday services with members of the Showers of Blessings, which took place at the GES Model Nursery School in Accra with 12 adults and 12 children attending the first Sunday service.

He assumed full leadership of the church in January 1993. That year, the number of worshippers increased significantly from 30 to 150 adults, leading to the church relocating to the Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) canteen in 1994. By 2000, the ministry had already acquired its own property.

After 10 years at Bank for Housing and Construction (Accra Ghana), Ankrah's wife joined Royalhouse Chapel International as a full-time minister in 1998 and was named Premier Lady of the organization.

Royalhouse Chapel International grew from 250 members to over 5,000 members within a five year period. In order to accommodate the increasing number of worshippers, they had to divide the Sunday section into three services which were held at 7:00 am, 9:00 am and 11:00 am respectively. 

Today, the ministry has grown into more than 30,000 members, with over 120 local assemblies and 20 international missions, and departments including media ministries.
