The ARS Church with its headquarters in Tadzewu in the Ketu North District of the Volta Region is one of the biggest religious institutions that is known for its religious practices in the Volta Region.
The founder of the Church, Prophet Mawu fe Ame Charles Kwabla Nutorntsi Wovenu, who converted the pagan worshippers, encouraged members to worship God by singing, drumming and dancing, which are key traditions of the Ewe people.
