3 Ordained Pastors Of The Church Of Pentecost

The Effiduase Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised an ordination service for three ministers in the Area who have been called into the pastorate of the Church.

The trio, Pastor Benjamin Kwasi Frimpong (Ehiamankyene District), Pastor Isaac Komla Agbesi (Bosuso District), and Pastor Collins Nyaaba Abayase (Dorminase District), were called into the pastorate during the 46th Session of the General Council Meetings in 2023 held recently at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh.

The ordination service, which took place at the Begoro District Central Assembly auditorium on Thursday, June 1, 2023, was officiated by Apostle Mike Kwame Etrue (Executive Council Member/ERCC Coordinator/Koforidua Area Head), assisted by Pastor Stephen Okyere Acheampong (Effiduase Area Head).

The occasion was also graced by Pastor Francis Adawu Gameli (Effiduase Area Secretary), Pastor Prince Odoom (PCC Manager), Pastor Sampson K. Boakye (Suhum Sector Travelling Secretary), and a host of ministers in the Effiduase Area.

Speaking at the service on the topic, “Hearing the Lord Speak in Your Ministry,” with scripture references from Ephesians 4:11-12, Genesis 3:8, Jeremiah 33:1-3, 1 Corinthians 2:9-12, 1 Corinthians 14:1, Matthew 5:6, and Psalm 107:9, Apostle Mike Etrue urged Christians, especially ministers and elders, to make it a priority to hear God speak in their ministry.

He, however, cautioned that those who disobey the voice of God will be led astray, but obedience to the voice of God brings peace, blessings, fruitfulness, and prosperity.

Apostle Mike Etrue, therefore, advised Church leaders to lead their flocks in obedience to the will of God.

He reiterated that the ascension gifts – apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher – are leadership offices of the Church, given by the ascended Christ to lead and perfect the saints.

He urged the Church members to cherish, appreciate, and support God’s gift of ministers to the Church, so they can benefit from the divine blessings contained within them.

Apostle Etrue noted that God speaks to His children through the glory of His creation, His Holy Spirit, His word, and through dreams, visions, and the human conscience.

“In fact, He sometimes speaks to us through our spouses, the elderly, our children, as well as events and circumstances to speak with us,” he explained.

According to him, the reason why God longs to speak to His children, among other things, is to give them divine wisdom to help people navigate challenges and situations.

“God uses so many methods to speak to you. Sometimes to turn us from wrongdoing and keep us from pride, to preserve our lives from perishing by the sword,” he said.

The Koforidua Area Head, therefore, urged believers, particularly ministers, to reposition themselves to always receive from the Lord.

Concluding his message, Apostle Etrue said that ministers can hear the Lord speak in their ministry by desiring to hear His voice (1 Corinthians 14:1, Matthew 5:6, Psalm 107:9), and being sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

The ordination service also had in attendance some Chiefs and traditional leaders.Members of the Church in the Area also turned up in large numbers to witness this historic event.
