The Ablekuma Agape District of The Church of Pentecost has organised a day’s retreat for all new converts and new members who joined the district in the second half of 2022.
The retreat, among others, gave the Church leadership the opportunity to teach participants about the practices and ethos of the Church, introduce them to the various ministries and committees in the Church, and also receive feedback from them on their assimilation into the district in particular, and The Church of Pentecost in general.
The District Minister, Pastor Frank Awuah Fordjour, encouraged the participants to be steadfast in the Lord and also commit themselves to the Church by getting involved in the activities of their respective local assemblies.
He also urged them to make themselves available to serve in any capacity in the Church whenever they are called upon.
Speaking to PENTECOST NEWS, Pastor Awuah Fordjour explained that a new convert, in the context of The Church of Pentecost (CoP), is one who has made a decision for Christ, been baptised and is ready to fellowship with any local assembly of the Church.
“The New Member, on the other hand, is an existing member of The Church of Pentecost, who has joined a new local assembly of the Church from another CoP branch or any of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) member (affiliate) churches,” he said.
In all, 152 people, 37 new members and 115 new converts, attended the programme.
