Anyaa-Ablekuma Area Holds Seminar For Ministers & District Clerks

The Anyaa-Ablekuma Area, led by Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye, organised a one-day seminar on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, for ministers, district clerks, and volunteers involved in the administrative functions of the district offices within the Area.

The primary objective of the seminar was to ensure that District ministers are well-informed about the responsibilities of the District Clerks and the expectations placed upon them. Central to this initiative was the intention to enhance the efficiency of the clerks in carrying out their duties through relevant and current training.

In his opening address, Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye highlighted the biblical imperative of equipping workers for Kingdom service, citing Ecclesiastes 10:10 and Proverbs 27:17.

He stressed the essential nature of continuous training, mentoring, instilling godly values, and providing on-the-job supervision to ensure fruitful outcomes.

Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye emphasised that neglecting ongoing training and guidance could result in detrimental consequences, leading to improper conduct such as financial misconduct, misappropriation of church funds, and violations of financial policies. Hence the need to organise such training events.

Deaconess Rianon Seesi, the Executive Secretary to the Odorkor Area Head, conducted a session on Basic Record Keeping, File Creation and Maintenance Procedures, Computer File Organization, and Proper Document Storage. Her presentation focused on the importance of meticulous record-keeping and offered practical guidance on efficient filing methods.

Pastor Emmanuel Teye Sackitey, the Anyaa District Minister, and the Area Secretary, elaborated on the role and qualities of a District clerk. He also enlightened clerks about what the Pastors, Presiding Elders, the District Executive Committee, and the General Church expect of them, and the ethical standards integral to their responsibilities.

The final part of the seminar was the presentation from the IT Department of The Church of Pentecost Headquarters, represented by IT Manager Pastor Paul Odai Laryea and Miss Mary Awah. They provided insights into the Pentecost Enterprise Resources Planning (PentERP) system. Their presentation covered the utilisation of PentERP for generating invoices, tithe closing, and handling financial transactions within the church.

In his closing remarks, Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye expressed gratitude to the facilitators for their exceptional expertise and the quality of their presentations.

He urged ministers to support clerks in their roles and ensure timely remuneration to enhance their job satisfaction. He also encouraged the clerks to exhibit diligence and dedication, as this could serve as a springboard to bigger opportunities in the future.

He also hinted that the training programme would be held periodically to monitor progress, address challenges, and strategize for more effective discharge of duties.
