The Agormanya Area of The Church of Pentecost, under the leadership of Apostle James Gabriel Quardson, has officially launched its Ministry to Persons With Disabilities (MPWD) to sensitise members of the Area and the general public on the significance of the new ministry.
The event, which took place on Thursday, November 26, 2020, brought together Persons living with Disabilities (PWDs) from all the districts in the Area as well as ministers and wives of the Area.
The MPWD is a ‘brainchild’ of the 5-year strategic vision of The Church of Pentecost dubbed Vision 2023 with the overarching goal of “Possessing the Nations – Equipping the Church to transform every Sphere of Society with Values and Principles of the Kingdom of God.”
Speaking at the occasion, the Director of the Department of Social Welfare and Community Development in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipal Assembly, Mrs. Naa A. Ofosu, advised all stakeholders of the society to embrace PWDs so that they would feel part of the society.
She admonished PWDs to judiciously utilize the supports they have been receiving from the Government of Ghana through the Department of Social Welfare and Community Development.
The Area Head, Apostle Quardson, on his part, admonished ministers to meticulously commit themselves to the Ministry to Persons with Disabilities for the achievement of the church’s vision in the Area.
He urged the church to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all persons, including PWDs, saying, “Persons with Disabilities are souls that must be incorporated in the discipleship structures of our churches.”
