The research area for my Ph.D with the University of Edinburgh was in Pentecostalism and Empowerment. The study explored internal structures of power, polity and leadership, liturgical forms and reforms, the churches' role in social policy, human development programmes, civic and public life issues in the Pentecostal-charismatic churches in Ghana i.e. The Church of Pentecost and International Central Gospel Church. The research focused on components of individual, group and community empowerment/disempowerment models in Pentecostalism in Ghana. The objective of the research was to show how contemporary Pentecostal-charismatic churches constitute social, cultural and religious capital in their effort to empower individuals and society.
My research interest include Pentecostalism and Empowerment; Pentecostalism and Social, Spiritual and Cultural Capital; Religious Polity and Leadership; and Church and State Relationship.
