David Manu was born in 1953 in the city of Kumasi by Mr. Kwame Manu and Madam Akosua Addai from Bebu in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the Ashanti Region of Ghana. He started his primary education at New Asafo primary school Kumasi and was transferred to Bebu when his father and mother were divorced, to live with his Aunt Madam Abena Nzema. His mother later on brought him to Kumasi to complete his elementary education at Danyame Local Authority middle school in 1970. David sold news papers to pay his fees at school because his Mother did not have and saw his Father once a year. David Manu became a shoe shine Boy at Kejetia lorry Park in Kumasi.

He saved some money out of his shoe shine work and entered into the jewelry business and made his first international travel to the Ivory Coast in 1973. David Manu changed the jewelry business and entered into the secondhand clothing business and sold his items on the market days in many parts of Ghana. His favorite places were Western Region, Brong Ahafo Region and the Northern Regions of Ghana. His Business grew and he opened two stores one in Kumasi and the other one in Takoradi.

He then started his import and export business. He dealt mainly in the secondhand clothing from Belgium, Togo, and the Netherlands. He met his wife Janet and got married to her on the 15th of September 1979. David came to know the Lord Jesus in 1980 by reading a tract written by Evangelist T.L. Osborn presented to him by the late Rev. Doris Aggrey who was then a teacher at the Presbyterian primary School in Takoradi, Ghana. May her soul rest in peace.

Rev. Doris Aggrey got hold of David and introduced him to Holy Power Evangelistic Ministry a non denominational fellowship at Adeambra in Sekondi-Takoradi, Ghana. Doris helped David with the foundational doctrines of Christ and advised David to find a Church to attend so David became a member of the Assemblies of God Church under the leadership of the late Rev. Appekie in Takoradi, Ghana. May his soul rest in peace. Doris got married to Rev Aggrey few years later. The fellowship met once a week at Adeambra, in Sekondi -Takoradi for Bible Study and Payer. David was an active member of the Fellowship led by Brother Atsiwah.

In 1982 Bishop Manu embraced the ministry and started Powerhouse Ministries Inc. at Old Tafo, Kumasi, Ghana. This brought a great persecution from some religious leaders and some political leaders but his good friend the late Evangelist Francis Amoako the founder of the Resurrection Power Ministries stood behind him to resist the pressure.

Yaw Asante, Rev. Douglas Frimpong, Rev. Alfred Nyamekye, Rev. Esther Nyamekye, Rev. Owusu Akyaw,and Rev. Ransford Obeng.
