Let’S get to know our pastor
Pastor William Anane-Forkuo was born in Ghana into a Methodist Family. He was a regular church attendee until he had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ at an all-night Prayer Meeting, where he gave his life to Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour. As a teenager, the Calling of God came on William’s life as he pursued a Career in the professional institution of Ghana and later continued in the UK.
William modelled Servant Hearted Leadership during his time serving as a young man at Grace Baptist Church in Kumasi, Ghana. He went through different levels of leadership, and it was during this time he met Juliet and later married her in 1993. William migrated to the United Kingdom a year later.
William and Juliet have been faithful servants of the Lord. They both worshipped in Pentecostal churches where William finally responded to the calling of God into full time ministry in 2002. As a minister, William has helped many come to know the love of God.
The Lord placed a burden on their hearts since they relocated to Feltham, West London. Their utmost desire was to help broken families and young people from all backgrounds in the community come to know the Love of God.
Their passion is for revival in the United Kingdom, and they believe that prayer is the answer. Their utmost plan is to bring men and women together regularly for revival prayer.
William and Juliet are blessed with two daughters, Wendy and Abigail, who are also supportive in the ministry of their parents and serve the Lord with equal passion.
They want to welcome you to JUBILEE PRIESTHOOD CENTRE, a family of God where everyone is valued and believe your life will never be the same.
In 2004, my family and I relocated to Feltham. Not so long after this move, I would occasionally pass by buildings in the area and I had a strong sense that one of these buildings could be a church. I would immediately suppress these thoughts since I did not think nor understand at the time that there was the need for something divine. This struggle persisted for a very long time.
One day, on one of my prayer walks, I came across ‘Cineworld’ (which is arguably the biggest building in Feltham), and yet again was prompted in the same fashion. Again I ignored the thought, believing that this was beyond me. I did however begin to pray about it and after some time it became apparent to me that God was prompting me to plant a Church in Feltham. Believing that I had uncompleted work to do in the Church I was serving, I brushed this aside.
During the times of prayer regarding these promptings, I was reminded of the calling of Abraham to an unknown land (as found in Genesis 12), and I could relate to this. This scared me greatly, particularly as I felt comfortable at -and didn’t want to move from my current place of worship at the time in West London, a large Pentecostal Church.
Even though I brushed aside the thought of it ever materialising; I kept praying to God and confessing that “Lord, I will do as you want me to do.”
What next? was the question. God never gives you the whole picture. This forced us to put our faith into action. My family and I did this by continuing to pray fervently for several years without any action. However, I began to question God as time went by and rationalise why this couldn’t be possible.
I heard God speak: “apart from many things l would like to use you for, I would like you to rebuild the broken families and young people with no direction or purpose that I will bring in your path.”
I knew that this was clearly from God because I do have a love for the people in what I consider a broken community. Many young people on the streets seem to come from broken relationships and families. For me, it is an exciting phenomenon to witness such people come to have a personal relationship with God, and thus, this ismy sole aim.
The Lord continued to minister to me strongly, and as I began to explore these promptings in prayer there was so much confirmation in His word, notably Isaiah 54:1-17, Genesis 13:15, Deuteronomy 28:9-10, 1 Corinthians 2:9 s. Additionally, other men of God confirmed this word and encouraged me in this course of action.
Having submitted finally to God’s will, I had a conversation with (……) about where our meeting place would be.
Having had the privilege of visiting several churches within the local area, I realised these individual Churches predominantly catered for, or attracted single ethnic groups.
I resolved that JUBILEE PRIESTHOOD CENTRE London (JPC), which was launched on the 16th November 2014 to carry out the vision God planted in me since 2004, would be ethnically diverse. The community of Feltham is multicultural and it is only right that JPC mirrors this. In particular, we do this by understanding that Jesus is willing to receive all irrespective of their background.
There are so many lost souls, people from broken homes and broken families that need healing and restoration and those that are looking for satisfaction in the world through crime, drugs etc.
Feltham is notably associated with high crime rates, and predominantly comprises of those who have no association with church. Feltham and its surrounding towns are in dire need of help. JPC is a beacon of light in this community, seeking to bring souls to Jesus Christ.
