1,664 Leaders Participate In La Area 2024 Apostolisation

A total of thousand six hundred and sixty-four (1,664) officers and other officeholders participated in this year’s La Area Officers Retreat (Apostolisation) of The Church of Pentecost.

It comprised 465 elders, 308 deacons, 519 deaconesses, 372 other officeholders and proposed officers, and ministers and their wives within the Area.

The annual programme started on Tuesday, February 6. It ended on Friday, February 9, 2024, under the theme, “A people of God unleashed to transform their world” – 1 Peter 2:9 and Acts 1:8. Districts within the Accra Newtown Zone had theirs at the Dr Thomas Wyatt Memorial Temple while the Sophia McKeown Temple was the venue for the La Zone. 

The event, made up of two sessions – morning and evening – saw the pastorate and their wives, officers, ministry and committee executives congregate for the evening session at the two zonal centres, with the morning session only attended by the ministers and their wives at the PIWC French Auditorium.

Speakers included Apostles Dr Dieudonne Komla Nuekpe (La Area Head and Executive Council Member), Samuel Nana Yaw Agyei (Kade Area Head), Anthony Mensah (Resident Minister for PIWC-Atomic), Prophet Ebenezer K. Appiah (Rtd) and Elder James Yamoah of Madina Area.

Some of the topics treated included “The Rationale behind the 2024 theme,” “Implications of the Unleashed Church on Chaplaincy and Workers Guild in our Church,” “Raising Christlike Believers to transform their spheres,” “The Characteristics of the Church Unleashed,” “Sacrificial giving, tithing and financial management,” “The Church as a people of God,” “Raising Godly families to impact the Church and the State,” “A people living by the principles, values and lifestyle of the Kingdom of God,” among others.

The speakers charged the gathering that the second phase of the ‘Possessing the Nations’ agenda (Vision 2028) of the Church, which is “Unleashing,” is aimed at moving the entire Church from the ‘equipping centre’ to transforming their world, starting from their immediate and intermediate families, workplaces, communities and the world at large with the principles, values and lifestyle of the Kingdom of God being the salt and light of the world.

They explained that Vision 2028 aims to identify a need or challenge within one’s sphere of influence and develop a ministry backed by Kingdom principles and values to solve the need.
