One hundred and twenty-nine ministerial students of the 2022/2023 batch of the Pentecost School of Theology and Missions (PSTM) at Pentecost University were commissioned into the full-time ministry of The Church of Pentecost.

The commissioning service, which was held yesterday at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, was officiated by the Chancellor of Pentecost University and Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye.

The ministerial students comprised 114 Ghanaians and 15 from The Church of Pentecost’s external branches, including Nigeria, Liberia, Angola, Libya, India, Zimbabwe, Equatorial Guinea and Thailand.

Apostle Nyamekye highlighted the challenges young men and their wives face when responding to God’s call to serve in remote places.

He encouraged the newly commissioned ministers to continuously expand their knowledge and skills to become versatile in their calling.

To enhance the spiritual experience of the commissioned ministers, Apostle Nyamekye urged Area Heads to provide guidance and nurture them, emphasising the importance of sharing experiences and supporting their positive development.

The Chairman called on the church community to uplift the young ministers in prayer, ensuring their ministry success and ability to make a difference as co-workers in the Lord’s vineyard.

Addressing the ministers, Apostle Nyamekye emphasised the significance of being authentic Christians who demonstrate Christ in their daily lives.

He urged them to extend their influence beyond congregations and impact various spheres of society with the Kingdom of God’s values, principles, and lifestyle.

The Vice-Chancellor of Pentecost University, Apostle Professor Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua, reminded the ministers to keep Jesus as their focal point and rely on the Holy Spirit for their ministry.

He stressed that their dependency on the Holy Spirit would determine His work in and through them.

Apostle Dr Benjamin Ali, the Downtown-Ofaakor Area Head, encouraged the ministers to trust in God for their needs in ministry, highlighting the support and collaboration required for maximum impact.
