Fifty-six teens of the Children’s Ministry of Adwumakase Kesse District in the Old Tafo Area of The Church of Pentecost were ushered into the Youth Ministry at a special graduation ceremony held on Sunday, September 10, 2023, with each graduand receiving a certificate of honour and a Bible.
The colourful ceremony, which was part of the just-ended National Children’s Ministry week celebration on the theme: “Building the Foundation of the Local Church For Maximum Impact,” was graced by Very Rev. Thomas Donkor Bagyina, Methodist Priest, Adwumakase Kesse.
In an interview with PENTECOST NEWS, the District Minister, Pastor Simon Kwarteng, noted that the graduation marks the end of the chapter for the graduands in the Children’s Ministry and opens another chapter for them in the Youth Ministry.
He was impressed with how the event was organised, acknowledging the efforts of the District Children’s Ministry Leadership and all the children workers in the district for making this year’s celebration a remarkable one for a district which is just one year old.
Mrs Lydia Kwarteng, the wife of the District Minister, also advised the graduands to hold fast onto the teachings by their teachers to avoid being swayed by false and erroneous teachings.
The District Children’s Ministry Assistant Leader, Madam Veronica Osei Bediako, on behalf of the district leadership, pledged their allegiance to continue being active stakeholders of the ministry for godly development of the children for a better tomorrow.
National Children’s Ministry week celebration gives children an opportunity to showcase their talents in Bible and poetry recitals, singing, word ministration, dancing, and some cadet drills.
