Rev. Mrs. Rita Korankye-Ankrah is an alumnus of St. Mary’s Secondary School, Accra, Ghana, of the class of 1981.
She holds Diplomas in Business Studies, Counselling & Psychology, and Entrepreneurial Studies. She also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Entrepreneurship and Management from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) and a Master’s Degree in Governance and Leadership from the same institution; winning the best student award in 2006.
After ten years of working with Bank for Housing and Construction; Rev. Mrs. Korankye-Ankrah joined her husband, the Apostle General, Most Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, in 1998, as a full-time minister of the gospel at Royalhouse Chapel International (RCI); a church they founded together in 1992. Together, they oversee this multi-racial, multi-national, non-denominational international charitable ministry with over 200 branches and affiliate churches in Ghana, USA and Europe.
In her capacity as Director of Social and Practical Ministry of RCI, Rev. Mrs. Korankye-Ankrah oversees various ministry departments and projects including the Men, Women, Young Adults, Teens and Children’s Ministries; Family Life Ministry, School of Restoration and all the humanitarian projects of RCI.
Mama Rita, as she’s affectionately called, founded the highly successful Royal Ladies Ministries International in 1994, now with ministry branches and affiliates all over the world, and particularly characterised by community outreach projects and the much talked about extraordinary International Camp Conferences currently held annually in Ghana, UK and USA. She has been a blessing to her alma mater, instituting the Sam Korankye Ankrah Award for Best Teaching and Non-Teaching staff from February 2006 till date. In 2018, the Best Elective Subject Award was added for the teacher who handled the award-winning class.
In February 2017, under the Royalhouse Chapel Scholarship Scheme, she offered full scholarships to students of St Mary’s Senior High School from Senior High School through to the University. Her contributions towards the school keep increasing by the day and she never refuses her alma mater any request when St. Mary’s Senior High, in her characteristic “Oliver Twist” manner, goes asking for more.
Mrs. Rita Korankye-Ankrah’s benevolence is an embodiment of all that St Mary’s Senior High School stands for. It is hoped that her selflessness would rub off on others to respond to their alma mater’s call when the need arises.
She is a Career Guidance Adviser, Marriage Counsellor, Entrepreneur, Motivational Speaker and Revivalist with a prophetic ministry.
She and her husband are blessed with four children and two grandchildren. They make their home in Accra, Ghana.
