Abstract: In 1888, the Seventh-day Adventist literature was distributed at the coast of Apam in the Central Region of Ghana. An indigenous Ghanaian named Francis Dolphijn got hold of some of the literature, read it and got converted. Through his effort, the Seventh-day Adventist church was officially established in Ghana in 1888. Since then, Ghanaian women have been contributing in diverse ways, to the organic growth of the church. So far there is a systematic analysis of the contribution of indigenous women in that direction. The study employed a qualitative and a historical approach. The researcher also used both primary, secondary and observational tools as a method of data collection. This research focused on analyzing systematically how the women in the Seventh-day Adventist church in Ghana have helped in developing the members of the church with regards to educational and economic empowerment. The research question is; in what ways have the Ghanaian Seventh - day Adventist‘s women contributed to the quality of membership? The main objective is to find out the contribution of indigenous women to the organic growth of the Seventh-day Adventist in Ghana and also to find out what motivates them in performing such roles in the church. Upon completion, the study brought to light the contribution of indigenous women to the organic growth of the Seventh-day Adventist church in Ghana thus, contributing to the data on women‘s activities in the church in general.
