Thirty-two participants drawn from 15 areas of The Church of Pentecost took part in this year’s Greater-Accra Area Leaders’ Conference organised by Home and Urban Missions (HUM).
The event, which took place on September 23, 2022, was held at the Church’s General Headquarters at La in Accra, Ghana.
Speaking on the topic: “HUM Yesterday, Today and the Future,” the National HUM Coordinator of the Church, Apostle Emmanuel Agyei Kwafo, said that the ministry focus of HUM is at the heart of what Christ is charging the Church to do, that is reaching out to the lost.
Admittedly, he said, the work of HUM requires that one must leave their comfort zones and venture into unpleasant places to reach to lost souls with the gospel message of Christ.
“As a result, there are a lot of negative insinuations about people involved in the ministry of HUM,” he observed.
He therefore, commended HUM workers and all other stakeholders for the good work done despite the challenges that comes with the work.
He also encouraged them not to take the opportunity of service the Lord has given them for granted but to continue to serve Him with all their hearts and strength.
As part of the event, the National Coordinator took participants through the history of HUM, the successes chalked so far, and some challenges mitigating against HUM.
Apostle Agyei Kwafo ended his presentation by urging HUM workers, particularly the leaders to continue to focus on their mandate of engaging the expatriates, African migrants, northerners settling in the south, unreached people groups and the urban poor and marginalised with the life-transforming gospel message of Jesus Christ.
The participants were also taken through the half-year report analysis and a workshop on how to make HUM work in the local Assemblies.
