Adukrom District Retires 16 Officers

The Adukrom District in the Koforidua Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised a retirement service for 16 officers of the church who have attained the church’s statutory retirement age of 65.

The service, which was held at the Adukrom Central assembly church auditorium on June 16, 2024, was used to appreciate the commendable services of the retired officers.

The retirees were Elders Daniel Maxwell Adu who served for 43 years, Benjamin Kwabena Asare who served for 38 years and Samuel Anim Abedi who also served for 29 years.

Others were Deaconesses Esther Yeboah (48 years of service), Elizabeth Tetteh (42 years of service), Paulina Odoi (38 years of service), Ernestina Adjei (38 years of service), Victoria Ofori Mantey (38 years of service), Patience Annorbea Domptey (30 years of service), Vida Ayisi (24 years of service) and Comfort Offei (24 years of service).

The rest were Deaconesses Florence Kwakye (22 years of service), Juliet Kumi Gyampoh (22 years of service), Philomina Odoi (21 years of service), Grace Osei Sakyibea (19 years of service) and Awo Joyce Anim who also served for 15 years.

The District Minister, Pastor Wellington Vigbedor, assisted by Pastors Daniel Donkor Larbi (Mampong District), Frederick Nyarko (Akropong District), Ransford Baah (Aburi District), and Overseer Fred Allotey (Klo Agogo District) officiated the service.

Speaking at the service on the topic, ‘Do Not Lose Your Crown’ based on 1 Samuel 8:1-8, Pastor Frederick Nyarko explained that Samuel became a leader of integrity in all aspects, but his children failed to follow his footsteps. He, therefore, called on leaders to ensure that their homes are put in order.

He noted that life is a journey to fulfil a God-given mandate and that every person has a specific purpose that has been given to them by God. 

According to Pastor Nyarko, being an officer is not about how long one serves but the impact they make. He added that leaders need to avoid division among members in discharging their duties.

He charged officers to stand their grounds, hold on to their faith and pass on what they have built to the next generation.

Dignitaries present to grace the occasion included Okogyeahene Otoafom Saforo Okoampah III (Chief of Apirede Akuapem), Mrs. Diana Acheampong (Wife of Koforidua Effiduase Area Head), Pastor Isaac Annor of PIWC-Downtown, among others.
