The Kwadaso Worship Centre (KWC) of The Church of Pentecost-Kwadaso Area, has finally been upgraded and inaugurated as a Pentecost International Worship Centre. The inauguration service, which took place on June 11, 2017 at the KWC central auditorium, saw about 467 members clad in branded PIWC-Kwadaso T-shirts, Lacoste and displaying other souvenirs in an ecstatic mood as they sang and danced to melodious and powerful ministrations by the Potters House (the resident choir).
The inauguration was characterized by a week-long series of activities from June 5, 2017. The activities included a prayer conference dubbed: ”The Upper Room Experience”, a business seminar dubbed “Financial Management And Growing Your Business” with Mr. Isaac Marfo (Auditor, Lecturer at University of Education, Winneba,Kumasi Campus and a Financial Consultant), a health talk with Mrs. Mavis Nana Ama Oppong (Wife of Resident Pastor) and Mrs Eunice Gbeve themed: “Wholeness”, a love and relationship talk dubbed “Love Matters” with Deaconess Josephine Ababio, a night of worship with Pastor Moses O.K., and an awareness walk through the streets of IPT, Sofoline, Asuoyeboah, Patasi, Edwenase, and Owhimasi.
Speaking on the theme: ”The Growth And Greatness Of The Kingdom,” Pastor Dan Nyanpong Asihene (Santasi District Minister) charged members to be committed and also embrace giving as a necessary factor to church growth as well as personal blessing.
In addition, he charged the leaders to engage the young people, embark on evangelism, improve upon the style of worship and improve on member satisfaction.
Among other things, he advised that the PIWC must serve its purpose and attract the new generation.
The Chairman of the Inaugural Committee, Pastor Kofi Antwi-Bosiako (Asuoyeboa District Minister) gave a brief history as well as important tits bits about PIWC. Having pastored PIWC-Atomic for five years, he charged the leadership of the Church to make every effort to excel in everything scriptural and moral.
Apostle Kingsford Kyei-Mensah, the Kwadaso Area Head, who officiated the event, revealed that the PIWC concept has become “an ocean” of The Church of Pentecost since its inception.
Elaborating further, he said although the PIWC concept suffered various criticisms, their current holistic growth cannot be underestimated. He also acknowledged the efforts of the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah, for birthing the vision and seeing to its fruition.
The inaugural ceremony was also used to appreciate Elder Kwadwo Kyeremeh and Deaconess Cecilia Kyeremeh and family, who have served as the Presiding Elder for 13 years. Through his meritorious service, he led the church to attain a Worship Centre status and subsequently an international status (PIWC-Kwadaso). The Resident Pastor also recognized the efforts of pioneers of the Church, which was formerly known as the Tanoso English Assembly and Asuoyeboah English Assembly.
The Resident Minister, Abraham Nana Bamfo Oppong, who doubles as the Kwadaso Youth Pastor, used the occasion to name the newly-appointed executives of the district. They are Elder Emmanuel Amfo (Presiding Elder and District Secretary), Elder Ebenezer Osae (Finance Committee Chairman), Elder Ahmed Bin Quaye, Elder Emmanuel Nketia, Elder Sapherine Awuku and Elder Douglas Brain.
In attendance were: Asante Bekwai Area Head, Apostle Nicholas Appiah Amissah, who is a former District Pastor of the Church, Pastor George Osei Asiedu (Adamse District - Essam Debiso Area), Pastor Samuel Nyankey (Wa Sector Travelling Secretary) and some ministers and wives in the Kwadaso Area.
