At 28, Dr. Yaw Perbi was nationally recognized and honoured as the Newmont Ghana Highest Achievement Award winner by the Vice-President of the Republic of Ghana at the Youth Achievers Awards held by the Millennium Excellence Awards Foundation. The Minister of Health followed that up with a glowing letter of commendation.
After miraculously escaping a tragic road traffic accident in 2008, Yaw strongly sensed that the LORD had saved him for a purpose beyond Medicine. Thus in 2009, he hung up his stethoscope to fully commit himself to the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and raising emerging leaders worldwide—he hasn’t turned back since. For four years (2012-2016) he had the privilege of pastoring the Montreal Chinese Alliance Grace Church.
Dr. Perbi resides between Montreal, Canada and Accra, Ghana with his graceful wife, Anyele, and seven delightful children, dextrously combining preaching, pastoring, doctoral research and leading global missions efforts with a variety of public speaking engagements, leadership and financial consultancy, executive coaching and serving as founding International Director of Kwiverr. He is a fellow of the Africa Leadership Initiative and the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
Yaw and Anyele believe in business as mission, and have ventures like Adeshe Real Estate, including a couple of AirBnB properties in Ghana and Canada, and an edtech known as Perbi Cubs, serving several thousands of children in the literacy space.
Yaw sits on several local and international boards and has been cited by the Lausanne Movement as being in a “strategic global leadership role” in our world today. He is a Lausanne Movement catalyst. He owes all these to Christ Jesus.
