As part of measures to possess the nations through the use of the media, the Agormanya Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised a seminar for the Area Media Team.
The seminar, which was on the theme, “Possessing the Nations through Community Information Centers” (Matthew 28:18-20 and Ephesians 3:10), was held at two centres- Asesewa and Nuaso. It brought together all news reporters, Community Information Centre Managers who are members of the Church and preachers from the various districts in the Area.
Presenting the keynote address, the Area Head, Apostle James Gabriel Quardson, explained that the time has come for the church to intentionally cover the airwaves with the values and principles of the Kingdom of God.
He noted that communities are concentrated with information centres which can be used as platform to possess the society through the preaching of the Gospel.
He encouraged the participants to go out to possess the various information centres with the unadulterated word of God.
The Area Media Ministry Pastor, Overseer Robert Asamoah, took the participants through the following topics; “Managing information centres with Possessing the Nations in Mind,” “How to preach effectively at information centres,” “Innovative ways of using the information centres to pursue the Vision 2023,” “Holistic approach in reaching the masses with the word of God,” among others.
He entreated managers of information centres not to entertain preachers who preach false doctrines but rather use their facilities as platforms to spread the Gospel.
Overseer Asamoah admonished information centre preachers to prepare themselves adequately in prayer before going on air. He entreated them to be students of the Bible.
He further asked the participants to be original and avoid copying messages and voices of other preachers. “Message preached at the information centre must be simple, clear and should be understood by everyone in the community,” he stated.
Elder Ezekiel Abban Teye, a member of the Area Media Team, also took the participants through News Reporting. He explained that News Reporting is a ministry which must be taken seriously by Christians.
He indicated that through News Reporting the Gospel message is spread to so many people. He called on news reporters to always report nothing but the truth.
