The Methodist Church Ghana is one of the largest and oldest Protestant denominations in Ghana. It traces its roots back to the landing of Rev. Joseph Dunwell on 1 January 1835 in Cape Coast, Ghana. Rev. Thomas Birch Freeman, another missionary, emerged as the father of Methodism in West Africa, taking the Christian message beyond Cape Coast to the Ashanti Kingdom, Nigeria, and other parts of the region.

After serving as a district in the British Methodist Conference, the Methodist Church Ghana attained full independence on July 28, 1961. It adopted an episcopal structure at the Koforidua Conference in August 1999. Currently, the Methodist Church Ghana has 15 dioceses headed by bishops. Between 2003 and March 2008, 406 new congregations were started and ministry was initiated in Burkina Faso.

The current Presiding Bishop is the Most Reverend Prof Emmanuel Asante, the third presiding bishop and the tenth person to lead the Methodist Church Ghana. The administrative bishop is the Right Reverend Kow B. Egyir, and the lay president is Araba Ata Sam.
