The Akuse District Central Assembly auditorium of The Church of Pentecost in the Agormanya Area Head has been dedicated to the glory of God.
The Agormanya Area Head, Apostle James Gabriel Quardson, dedicated the edifice on December 20, 2020, assisted by the Akuse District Minister, Pastor Jacob Kwarkyi Frimpong.
Speaking at the service on the topic, “The Second Coming of Jesus Christ – The Hope of the Church” taken from John 14:1-2 and Acts 1:11, the Akrade District Minister, Pastor Joseph K. Tawiah, admonished believers to live well for Jesus Christ since he will be coming soon.
He stated that while waiting for the second coming of Christ, believers need to rely fully on the Holy Spirit, be watchful and vigilant so as not to be blown and tossed by false doctrines, and involve themselves in all activities of the church.
Pastor Tawiah entreated the members to use the church building as a place for prayer and teaching of the unadulterated word of God.
In a short remark, Apostle Quardson reminded the congregation to continue to proclaim the good news about the second coming of Jesus Christ. He further admonished them to live a godly life that will bring glory to God.
The Akuse Central Assembly was established in 1965 through the determination of some members who were then working at Akuse. The Assembly’s first place of worship was the old Slaughter House. The Assembly later acquired a plot of land in 1992 on which the church building is currently situated.
The sod-cutting ceremony took place on July 1, 1992, by Pastor B. B. Baiden, then of Agormanya District, on behalf of the Regional Head of the then Eastern Region ‘A’, Prophet Anum. The foundation stone of the building was laid by Apostle S. R. Odoom in 2009, assisted by the then District Minister, Pastor Evans Nketsia Egyir. Subsequent district ministers tirelessly continued the project to date.
The project was funded by Headquarters grant of GH¢122,971.15, AIDF – GH¢47,500.00, District Support of GH¢ 10,028.00, and Local support of GH¢102,000.00.
In attendance at the event were the Area ministers and their wives, past ministers of the district, the Chief of Natriku, Nene Amoaku IV, and a representative of the Paramount Chief of Osudoku, Nene Aklebeto I.
