Yendi Area Holds 3rd Ministers And Wives Retreat

Date: December 5, 2017


This year’s 3rd Prayer and Fasting Retreat for ministers and their lives in the Yendi Area of The Church Of Pentecost has been held in Yendi.

The four-day programme which took place at the Yendi Central assembly from  November 20 to 24, 2017 was under the theme: “Re-digging the Wells of Pentecost.”

Speaking at the retreat, the Area Head, Apostle William Kojo Edzorhoho, pointed out that though the beginnings of the Church was small, by God’s grace it is now glorious. “The path to this glory is the ancient paths we must follow and the wells we must re-dig,” he said.

Speaking from Genesis 21 and 26, he gave very deep spiritual insights about Isaac’s journeys on the land of the Philistines, his challenges and strivings with the herdsmen of Gerar and how he relied on God in re-digging the wells of his father Abraham.

Referring to the tenets and the core practices of the Church, Apostle Edzorhoho identified some of the wells of the Church that need re-digging as prayer and fasting, aggressive evangelism, sacrificial giving, ministry excellence, holiness, among others.

He pointed out that current generation of ministers have no excuse to fail because they have every resource available to them.

Continuing on day two, Apostle Edzorhoho spoke on how to develop one’s ministry. To have a fruitful ministry, he stated the need for ministers to be conscious of God’s work and the need to be totally dependent on Him, serve with gladness, and have intimacy with Him.

Apostle Edzorhoho continued on day three with profound insights on “brokenness” and how it forms a vital aspect of the Christian ministry. He revealed that “brokenness is not a weakness but the very source of the believer's strength in Christ Jesus.” He further revealed that “when there is true brokenness, inwardly there is an emptiness only God can fill but outwardly there is a weakness only God can strengthen.”

Also speaking on the topic, “The Holy Spirit in the Life of the Minister,” Overseer McCarthy Amevade Coffie of Kpalbutabu District, indicated that the Holy Spirit is a must-have ingredient in the life of the minister. He said that ministers can have personal victorious experiences by sharing many of their personal experiences with the Holy Spirit.

Overseer Isaac Berko of Tatale District charged ministers to “Catch the Spirit of Excellence” in the work of the ministry, which is a call to serve and not to be served.

Speaking on day-four, the Area Head stated: “We should see Christ in every challenge, our experiences are good but we must continue to rely totally on Christ.”

Overseer Peter Abdulai K. Darlinting, speaking on “Re-digging the Wells of Prayer,” stated that “in the school of signs and wonders, prayer is inevitable.”

In his closing remarks, Apostle Edzorhoho noted that “re-digging” is an individual affair, and charged ministers to rely totally on the Holy Spirit for success.
