Transmitting the Spirit in Missions: The History and Growth of the Church of Pentecost discourses on how Pentecostalism in general has been involved in the current growth, mission, and changing face of global Christianity. It argues that African Pentecostals particularly are an integral part of the global expansion of Christianity in this century. Specifically, this book engages the history and growth of the Church of Pentecost, an African Pentecostal denomination from Ghana, to demonstrate how African Pentecostals have taken their spirituality into their own hands and planted churches in their home country, as well as other parts of the globe. The focus of this book is that African Pentecostals have achieved this feat through the experiential power and reliance of the Holy Spirit and the indigenous factor. The specific highlight is that this book is an updated analysis of the history, growth, and missions of the Church of Pentecost. Although this work is transformed from a PhD thesis, the content is presented accessibly to both the academia and general church populace, both pastors and the laity. ""The saying that 'a man and his message are the same' finds its confirmation in Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin and this amazing book. As an apostle and seasoned evangelist who has been involved with missionary work, he understands that it is not enough just to go around preaching the gospel. One needs to transfer the passion, content, and dunamis undergirding the work of missions to others, to both the present and future generations. This, Dr. Markin has brilliantly done in this masterpiece."" --Michael Ntumy, The Church of Pentecost, Director, Pentecost Literary Works, Missionary, Germany ""This is indeed a remarkable effort, demonstrating how insiders see and understand the factors underlying the continuous growth and expansion of the Church of Pentecost as an indigenous global church. An excellent compendium to earlier works."" --Emmanuel Kingsley Larbi, Founder and Chancellor of Regent University College of Science and Technology, Ghana ""Dr. Markin's book, Transmitting the Spirit in Missions, deserves serious and widespread attention as a momentous achievement in Pentecostal missions history in Africa, particularly as it relates to Ghanaian Pentecostalism. . . . This is an impressively thorough treatment of the history of how the Church of Pentecost defied all challenges of schisms and acrimonies in a very delicate colonial era and grew to become one of the major Christian denominations in the world. Anyone interested in Pentecostal missions history in Ghana cannot afford to ignore this important work."" --Lord Elorm Donkor, Principal, Birmingham Christian College, Birmingham, UK ""In this book, Dr. Jimmy Markin argues that the missions abroad of the Church of Pentecost . . . has a deliberate intention for reverse mission. He contends that as a typical example of a Pentecostal church in this era, the Church of Pentecost moves beyond translating the message to transmitting the Spirit in its global missionary endeavors. This book will open your mind to the debate on reverse missions."" --Opoku Onyinah, Chairman, The Church of Pentecost, Accra, Ghana Amos Jimmy Markin is an apostle of the Church of Pentecost and its evangelism director.
