A special service has been organised to inaugurate the newly-created Pakyi District in the Kwadaso Area of The Church of Pentecost. The ceremony coincided with the dedication of the district mission house and the welcome service for the first District Minister, Pastor Joseph Yaw Ntiamoah, and his family.
The event which took place on Thursday, August 31, 2017, at Pakyi, was officiated by the Area Head, Apostle Kingsford Kyei Mensah, supported by the pastorate in the Area.
Speaking on the topic, “I Can Do All Things” the Kwadaso District Minister, Pastor Kwamena Bram, challenged the congregant to be very bold in faith and never lose hope in times of difficulties.
He said that though the Apostle Paul faced a lot of challenges in his ministry, he stood firm and declared that he can do all things through Christ who strengthened him - Philippians 4:13. “This statement must give you hope and contentment in every situation you find yourself knowing that victory will surely prevail,” he said.
The Area Head, Apostle Kingsford Kyei Mensah, also used the occasion to inaugurate the District Executive Committee Members.
The Pakyi District was carved out of the Trede District. The church in Pakyi was established in 1971 through the efforts of the late Rev. E. B. K. Ababio, Rev. Peter Ohene Kyei (father of Apostle Prof. Peter Ohene Kyei), Opanin Yaw Fosu, Deacon Ebenezer Atta, Opanin Nkrumah, Deacon Robert Adu and Nana Abena Afrakoma.
The dedicated mission house which cost GH¢157,053 was completed within a period of five months after the sod-cutting ceremony to commence the project was performed by Apostle Kyei Mensah on March 9, 2017.
