In pursuance of the evangelistic drive of The Church of Pentecost, the Kaneshie Area, under the leadership of Apostle Mike Etrue, on Monday, October 30, 2017, launched the ‘Operation One Member One Discipled Soul’ campaign at the Kaneshie Central Church Auditorium.
The launch was used to create awareness among officers and leaders of the church to be able to implement the project to the core at all levels.
The ‘One Member One Discipled Soul’ campaign, an initiative of the National Directorate of the Evangelism Ministry of The Church of Pentecost is aimed at encouraging members of the church to respond to the great commission by preaching, winning and disciplining souls for God by the end of the year. A national target of 1,000,000 souls has been set by the leadership of the church.
In a detailed presentation, the Area Evangelism Leader, Pastor Aaron Tetteh Nartey, walked the church through how the campaign can be conducted. He noted that enough fasting and prayer sessions should be organised ahead of the evangelism outreaches.
He also urged the leadership at the local level to ensure that the converts won over the period are followed up on and baptised. Pastor Nartey who doubles as the District Minister for Nii Boi Man District, also took the opportunity to state how urgent the preaching of the gospel is in these times. He also informed the Area Presbytery that the project is not only an Evangelism Ministry affair but a church affair.
Pastor Ampea Badu, a former Secretary of the Evangelism Ministry National Executive Committee, on behalf of the Area Head launched the campaign.
The Area Head, Apostle Mike Etrue, led officers to pray fervently for the success of the campaign in the Area and the church as a whole.
Speaking at the launch which coincided with the Area Officers monthly prayers, Apostle Mike Etrue charged the participants not to lose their spiritual fervour.
He asserted that if officers fail to live in unity, have thoughts of resentment, unforgiving or bitterness, refuse to live in total obedience, indulge in improper humour and excessive liberty and pride, they will lose their spiritual strength which will affect the church negatively.
Apostle Mike Etrue in a sermon titled, “Contend with Your Spiritual Strength as an Officer” based on Judges 16:20-21 and Luke 4:18, admonished officers to strive, contain, maintain and sustain their spiritual sensitivity at all times.
Using Sampson as a case study, he advised officers not to live loosely or in sin, not to discredit their vow to God and the church and continuously be in the company of believers.
