The Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) in Cape Coast Sector organised the second edition of the “Kodesh Pre-tertiary Conference” on Saturday, November 18, 2023, for pre-tertiary schools in the Cape Coast zone.
The event, held at the Adisadel Church auditorium, was under the theme: “Sexual Purity” (2 Timothy 2:22).
Pastor Blessing Joseph Quayson, the PENSA Travelling Secretary for Cape Coast Sector, emphasised that the gathering aimed to ground students in Christ and empower them to resist sexual immorality on their campuses.
Referring to 1 Thessalonians 4:1-7, he stressed that living a sanctified life aligns with God’s will, as He calls us to pursue holiness, not impurity.
Mrs. Esther Asare Yeboah, wife of the Dominance District Minister and a Pharmacist, delivered the first presentation on “Establishing a Perfect Balance as a Young Christian.”
Encouraging participants to balance their academic and spiritual lives, Mrs. Asare Yeboah identified challenges such as procrastination, bad company, social media, lack of godly mentors, excessive sleep, laziness, and poor time prioritisation.
She challenged students to strive for a balanced life, outlining key attitudes like goal-setting, time management, proper prioritisation, avoiding procrastination, and maintaining discipline.
The second presentation, led by Mr. Emmanuel Owusu Acheaw, Administrator for the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values, focused on “The LGBTQ+ Agenda.”
Drawing from Leviticus 18:23 and related scriptures, he clarified the hidden aspects of the LGBTQ+ movement, cautioning against their goal of universal acceptance.
Mr. Owusu Acheaw highlighted negative consequences associated with LGBTQ+ practices, including high rates of suicide, homicide, depression from rejection, child defilement, and the spread of HIV/AIDS.
Pastor Frank Akonnor, Resident PENSA Campus Minister for the University of Cape Coast (UCC), conducted the Holy Ghost baptism session, resulting in 30 participants receiving the Holy Spirit, with an additional 22 students giving their lives to Christ.
The programme, attended by 426 participants, included members of the working team, patrons, the incoming PENSA Ghana Coordinator, Elder Issah Iwembeh, and Overseer Benjamin Yeboah Asare.
