The International Missions Director (IMD) of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Emmanuel Gyesi Addo, on Sunday, March 12, 2017, worshiped with members of Koforidua Effiduase District in the Koforidua Effiduase Area to climax this year’s McKeown Missions Week.
Speaking on the topic: “I am an Example of Christ in my Generation” (John 3:36 and Romans 16:8), the IMD explained that Christians have the responsibility in fulfilling the Great Commission of winning more souls to Christ.
“The wrath of God awaits those who have not believed the gospel. As Christians, we shouldn’t be wicked by not telling others about Christ,” he noted.
Touching on Missions work, Apostle Gyesi-Addo reiterated that missions work gave birth to The Church of Pentecost since the Founder, Rev. James McKeown, was a missionary. He challenged Christians to accept the fact that spreading the Good News is a core mandate to all.
The IMD made a clarion call to Christians to preach the good news to their neighbours. He also urged members of the Church to pray, call and encourage Missionaries. He also advised them to give offerings and donations to support missions work. “Missionaries leave behind their families to make progress for the Lord and we need to support them,” he added.
The Area Head for Koforidua Effiduase, Apostle Samuel Lord Agyin, led the congregation in prayer after the sermon.
The congregation supported with 60 pieces of new clothes at a total cost of GH₵3,400.00 to support missions work.
Present at the service were: Mrs. Elizabeth Gyesi-Addo (Wife of the IMD) and Pastor Emmanuel Osei Agyapong (District Minister for Koforidua Effiduase).
