The Adukrom District in the Koforidua Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised its second Homecoming and fundraising ceremony in a grand style. The fundraising was in aid of the church’s ongoing building project
The celebration which was dubbed, “A Glorious Church Revived to Build a House for God’’ – Ephesians 3:21, Nehemiah 2:17-18, took place from 15th to 21st February 2021.
Highlights of the weeklong activities included fasting and prayers, health and business talk, clean-up exercise, fundraising and special thanksgiving service.
The glamorous event was attended by many dignitaries including Apostle Samuel Osei Asante (Koforidua Area Head/Executive Council Member), Apostle Lawrence Otu-Nyarko (Finance and Administration Director at the Headquarters), Apostle Michael Collins Asiedu (Rtd.), and Apostle David Yeboah Asare (Rtd.).
Others were Hon. Dan Kwaku Botwe (Minister Designate for Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development and Member of Parliament for Okere Constituency), Elder Dr. Ken Aboah, Elder Dr. Emmanuel Kwasi Mireku (Gospel Artiste), Elder Samuel Larbi Darko, Elder Emmanuel Donkor, Elder Samuel Larbi Gyampo (Queens New York), among others.
In a short remark, the Koforidua Area Head, Apostle Samuel Osei Asante, called on all and sundry, especially natives of the town to support the church building project, both financially and materially.
Apostle Lawrence Otu-Nyarko (FAD), on his part, noted that God works through humans for His glorification. In possessing the nations for Christ, he indicated that the church has a duty to put up a building to contain the members and the souls won for Christ.
Apostle Michael Collins Asiedu (Rtd.), who was the second Minister of the District, from 1989-1993, appealed to all natives of the district to join this worthy cause of building the new church auditorium.
Pastor Francis Broni (District Minister) gave details of the state of the project and how the building would look like after completion. He said that the project will be a storey building with a seating capacity of more than 1,200 people. It will also have three children’s apartments, a lactation apartment for nursing mothers, a conference room, an audio-visual apartment, a sound control room, washrooms, baptistry and offices.
Pastor Broni encouraged all ministers of the church as well as officers and members who hail from Adukrom and its environs to support the project.
The Member of Parliament for the area, Hon. Dan Botwe, promised to support the project and volunteered to become the project ambassador. He expressed his appreciation to The Church of Pentecost for the tremendous work it is doing in the country. He further commended the Church for putting up police stations, modern prison facilities, health centres and other interventions in various parts of the country.
The MP was particularly grateful to the Church for the support that it extended to the Government and people of Ghana in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic by giving out the Pentecost Convention Centre to the Government as an Isolation Centre.
