The Wa Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Robert Kwabena Andoh, on 20th December, 2017 dedicated the newly created Namong District Mission house and Central church building.
The church building was funded by the Headquarters through its Community Based Church Building (CBCB) grant, while the mission house was constructed with funds from the Newly Created Districts grant.
The Namong Assembly was opened by the current Chairman of the Church, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah, during his early days in ministry as an Overseer in-charge of the Wa District in 1977, after a rally at the village.
The church worshipped under a tree near the community market. One Mr. James Duogu (a.k.a. Sikape) who got converted through the ministration of then Overseer Onyinah, was later baptized and received the Holy Ghost baptism and appointed to preside over the assembly in 1979.
Later, Mr. Duogu who became an Elder (now retired) gave a parcel of land to the Church, where a church building was built. However, the structure collapsed during a rainstorm not too long ago. This engineered the move to find another place of worship for them, hence the release of the grant for the project.
Speaking at the dedication service, Pastor Francis Adu Cudjoe of Wa-Wapani District, entreated all to build on the strong foundation in the person of Jesus Christ so they can stand the test of time.
Quoting from Matthew 7:24-27, he explained that the parable illustrates the importance of building one’s life on obedience to the teachings and example of Jesus. “This makes one firmly grounded so that one is not withered away by circumstances of life,” he said.
The occasion was also used to dedicate the Kpaglahi church building, with the Borna Assembly church building having its foundation stone laid.
