The Teshie-Nungua Area has once again built and dedicated a church building at Assin Amoabin, naming it after Madam Agnes Boahemaa Gyimah, the mother of the Executive Chairman of Jospong Group of Companies, Elder Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong.
The edifice has the main auditorium for adult service, children’s auditorium, an office, a store room and washrooms.
It will be recalled that the Area on September 24, 2017 named a magnificent church building at Nungua after Madam Gyimah.
The Assin Amoabin dedication service was attended by the Area Head, Prophet James Osei Amaniampong and his wife Georgina, the Teshie-Nungua Area pastorate and their wives, Dr. Siaw Agyepong and his family and several other dignitaries.
In a sermon on the topic, “Walking in the Steps of Jesus,” the Area Head for Winneba and former Rector of the Pentecost University College, Apostle Professor Peter Ohene Kyei, quoted various Bible texts including 1 Peter 2:21-22 and called on believers to imitate Christ in all His ways.
“People can imitate their mentors in various ways including their speech, walking and behaviour, “he said.
He explained that some Christians live double standard lives and tell lies in spite of the fact that they are followers of Christ.
Prophet Amaniampong, on his part, explained that the move was to honour the memory of Madam Agnes Boahemaa Gyimah in her hometown due to her contribution to the Church, coupled with the immense support Elder Dr. Siaw Agyepong has been giving to the Church.
The Area also provided a borehole for the community while Dr. Agyepong promised them a second borehole.
Elder Dr. Siaw Agyepong was full of gratitude to the Teshie-Nungua Area for the honour done his family. The family donated a keyboard, combo, pulpit and 10 chairs for the platform to the church.
The Member of Parliament for Assin South constituency, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, also donated four street lights to be fixed at the church premises.
The Assin Amoabin Assembly has been in existence since 1980. In February 2016, the Area Head for Cape Coast, Apostle David Tettey Terkper, assisted by the District Minister, Pastor Isaac Gyadu, cut the sod for a new church building. The Teshie-Nungua Area decided to take over the entire project and funded it.
In addition to building the church, the Area also donated 200 pieces of metal chairs.
The late Madam Agnes Boahemaa Gyimah, a native of Assin Amoabin in the Central Region, was born on March 21st 1948. In the early 1990s while living at Teshie, a suburb of Accra, she got converted and fellowshipped with The Church of Pentecost at the Teshie-Nungua Estate Assembly. She was a very active member who participated in all church activities. His son, Dr. Agyepong and other family members got converted through her evangelistic work. She passed away in January 2000.
