SCANDAL: Judge exposes married Ghanaian pastor who impregnated member after receiving private jet from church

A Canada based married Ghanaian pastor, who was gifted a private jet by his church members two years ago, is involved in a paternity case following allegations that he fathered a child with his former congregant.

Martin Kofi Danso, who is the founder of Miracle Arena for All Nations, which operates 17 branches in various countries, reportedly impregnated Chris-Ann Bartley and the case is in court.

But the pastor wants to have his identity kept secret because the publicity could damage his reputation and hurt him financially.

However, a judge ruled on Tuesday that Danso can’t keep his identity secret in the paternity case.

The Star reports that Ontario Superior Court Justice Fred Myers dismissed a request by Martin Kofi Danso to extend a publication ban and sealing order on a court file related to allegations he fathered a child Bartley.

Bartley’s lawyer, Theodora Oprea, said after Tuesday’s hearing, that a DNA test has since confirmed Danso is the father of her client’s baby boy, who is now six months old.

According to the Miracle Arena website, “Prophet Danso” is a devoted father of four who travels the world “impacting and empowering millions of lives through his powerful preaching and teaching ministry.”

His wife, JoAnne Danso, is a reverend with the church known as “Mama.”

Court heard Tuesday she is expecting twins any day now.
