The National Youth Directorate of The Church of Pentecost, under the leadership of Apostle David Nyansah Hayfron, has launched a new initiative to groom and equip the youth to become competent business and corporate leaders of the contemporary generation dubbed the “Business Chamber”.
According to the Youth Director, the Business Chamber aims to raise a well-motivated army of entrepreneurs, business and corporate giants who will have the spiritual and professional capacity to master their chosen fields and succeed in life and the business to God’s glory.

They are Pastor Abraham Nimako Boateng, Pastor Isaac Asare, Pastor David Francis Akayue, Elder Paul Kofi Mante, Deacon Dickson Tawiah Dziwornu, Deaconess Cynthia Agyepong, Deaconess Alberta Udzu and Deaconess Eunice Adwoa Sarpong.
