Megachurches

According to recent forecasts, 40% of the global Christian population will be resident in Sub-Saharan region by 2060. Pentecostal and Charismatic churches are attracting the greater numbers in the continent, with a form of Christianity believing that faith can bring wealth and benefits, cure through divine miracles and improve the lives of the faithful through prayers, a rigid morality, tithes and donations. During a two months stay I photographed the daily life in the places of worship of the major Pentecostal and Charismatic churches of Ghana.
