As a young man he worked for Reinhard Bonnke Ministries, helping to put on crusades throughout Africa. He was a 1991 graduate of Mount Hope Bible Training Institute in Lansing, Michigan. After graduation he founded Free International Missions. Through his leadership, Free International Missions saw over six million souls won to Christ, and a Bible School built in the Ivory Coast that graduated over 600 pastors who currently serve in over 50 countries around the world. Free International Missions also helped to plant over 300 churches, establish feeding programs, build orphanages, dig wells in remote villages, and provide ongoing training and encouragement for pastors in both Africa and the United States. Bishop Yeboah had become a pastor to pastors. The work of Free International Missions brought him in contact with several current and former African presidents. At the time of his passing, Free International Missions was building a children’s school in Nkwanta, Ghana. Bishop Yeboah also ministered extensively throughout Michigan and many parts of the United States.
