Chairman meets officers and workers in Germany.
As part of his familiarisation tour to Germany, the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Kwabena Nyamekye has held a meeting with all officers and workers of the Church in Germany on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at the Central Assembly in the Hamburg North District.
The Chairman’s meeting with the officers and workers was to expose the church’s five year vision dubbed “Possessing the Nations” to them and also encourage them to continue the good work they are doing for the Church in Germany. Vision 2023 is geared towards equipping the Church to Transform Every Sphere of Society with Values and Principles of the Kingdom of God.
Speaking at the meeting, Apostle Eric Nyamekye revealed that, as part of vision 2023, especially in the external branches, the Church must be a continental church where people of different Nationalities will feel comfortable whenever they come to church. He mentioned that, evangelism must be intensified so as to win more souls to expand the Kingdom business. Adding that, as part of Vision 2023, the leadership of the church want to see indigenous churches in Germany, where only Germans will be in such assemblies.
In view of that, he encouraged presiding elders and other officers to groom young elders who know more about the German culture and understand their way of doing things to be called into the full time ministry so that the agenda of possessing Germany and establishing indigenous assemblies will come into reality.
“Take advantage of the radio, internet and social media to propagate the gospel. The gospel must not stay in the confines of the church, but it should reach out to people all over the Nations” he emphasised.
In a short video showed to the officers and workers with regards to a project the Church has started at the Ejura Prisons in Ghana, the Chairman explained to them how the Church plans to partner with governments in the various Nations as part of the Possessing the Nations agenda. He explained that, the church must not only exist in the country, rather the church must have a positive impact on the country.
The Ejura Prisons Project is part of the numerous projects the Church has started in Ghana to help inmates have a better life than what they are experiencing today. The Chairman therefore encouraged all officers who have the will to support this worthy course.
Apostle Eric Nyamekye applauded the officers for their immense contribution to the growth of the Church in Germany, stating that, without the help of the officers, the Church would not be where it is today.
The Chairman therefore charged them not to relent on their hard work, but should continue to strive for excellence and possess Germany for Christ. He lauded the officers for working selflessly without complaints. “Officers of the church are not paid, but they work wholeheartedly and see to it that, things are done properly as they ought to be done” he stressed.
According to him, the officers play an important role in the Church as the number of pastors in the Church are less than the officers. He reiterated that, the total membership of the Church in Germany is about 18,000 and if left in the hands of only the pastors, they cannot handle them.
He also encouraged them to see to the spiritual well-being of their members and not be so much inclined with rules and regulations in the church that do not bring life the members. This he said can kill the church as members may be deprived of things of the Spirit which they need most as Christians.
The Chairman therefore appealed to all the officers and worker at various levels to give out their best to support the vision so that, Nations will be taken for Christ at every sphere of life.
Present at the meeting were Apostle Dr. M.K. Ntumy, former Chairman and wife, Mrs. Martha Ntumy, Apostle Ebenezer Nii Odai Quaye, National Head and wife, Mrs. Rosaline Quaye, Pastor Jabis Osei Kwame, North Area Head, Pastor Osahene Amankwaa Boateng, South Area Head, All the Pastorate in Germany and their wives, Elder Yaw Poku-Bota, National Deacon and Mrs. Felicia Darko Sakyi, National Women`s Ministry leader.
