The Department of Social Communications (DEPSOCOM), through the provision of strategic leadership and technical support, works with other departments of the Diocese of Techiman, in ensuring that the Church's mission and objectives in social communications are achieved (cf. NCS, Restructuring Document, June 2011, Page 23).
The DEPSOCOM has the mandate to co-ordinate the Diocese’s evangelization ministry through the Electronic, Print and Social media. The role of DEPSOCOM is to ensure liaison between the Diocese of Techiman and the General Public; and also supports the dissemination of the social doctrine and teaching of the Church in the media. Other departments and offices of the Diocese disseminate information to the general public through DEPSOCOM.
Mission: The mission of DEPSOCOM is to promote the Catholic Church and its activities in Ghana for the enhancement of Christian, social and human values on the national and international levels (Ibid 23)

RADIO AND TELEVISION PROGRAMS
Following our mandate as a diocese to be witnesses to the Good News ‘till the end of the earth’ (cf. Acts 1:8), several individual priests and Lay Faithful, through their own initiatives and sacrifices, secured air times on Classic 91.9 FM, Agyenkwa 105.9 FM, and Kessben TV, to preach the Word of God and teach the Catholic Faith to all peoples.
We wish, on behalf of the Bishop of Techiman Diocese, Most Rev. Dominic Yeboah Nyarko, and on behalf of the Techiman Diocesan Communication Team, to thank Very Rev. Fr. Francis Anane Yeboah, Rev. Fr. Martin Oduro Bilson, Very Rev. Fr. Peter Yeboah, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Baffoe, and Mrs Elizabeth Nsoah, and Mr. Daniel Ntow, for their pioneering works in preaching the Catholic Faith on Radio and Television.
Currently, DEPSOCOM supervises and enhances all these great initiatives. The Catholic Diocese of Techiman, through DEPSOCOM now have Catholic Teachings on the following electronic media:
