The Church of Pentecost was founded by Pastor James McKeown (1900-1989), an Irish missionary sent by the Apostolic Church, Bradford in the United Kingdom to the Gold Coast (now Ghana) in 1937. The precursor to the church of Pentecost in the United Kingdom was the Pentecost Association of UK and Eire (PAUKE). Prior to the formation of PAUKE, many Ghanaian Christians in London were members of Ghana Christian Fellowship. The church had begun as a fellowship among Ghanaian migrant community. This community was created with fellow brethren that had travelled and lost their salvation upon life in the U.K.
