Apostle Eric Nyamekye Meets With GPCC Leaders In Asankrangwa

The President of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) and Chairman of The Church of Pentecost (CoP), Apostle Eric Nyamekye, met with leaders of various churches within the Asankrangwa township and its surroundings in the Western Region of Ghana as part of his recent visit to the Region.

Speaking to them on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at the Asankrangwa Newtown Central Assembly of The Church of Pentecost, he examined the essence of pastoral leadership in nurturing a church that thrives and expands.

He described the church as both an organism, teeming with life, and an organisation requiring structure and leadership. He emphasised that, unlike a company, the church possesses life, which is evident through growth, reproduction, and adaptation.

Highlighting the role of a pastor, Apostle Nyamekye stated, “The church needs leadership to grow and to spread.” He stressed the importance of keeping God at the centre, as He is the one who gives life to the church and enables it to flourish.

He pointed out that wisdom is as crucial as holiness in leadership, referencing Acts 6:1-4, where growth led to challenges within the church. He urged pastors to lead with wisdom and to be diligent in studying the Word to ensure the church’s longevity.

Apostle Nyamekye identified three key elements for effective pastoral leadership: skill, attitude, and character. He defined skill as knowledge put into practice and underscored the need for pastors to continually develop their abilities.

He also discussed the significance of attitude, saying, “Attitude can be threatening or relaxing. It causes people to love or hate you.” He advised maintaining a good attitude, which is underpinned by respect for all.

In conclusion, he provided guidance on maintaining integrity in speech, financial matters, and relationships, encouraging pastors to lead with absolute purity and righteousness.

Present at the meeting were Apostle Sylvester Arhin (RCC Coordinator, Western and Western North), Apostle Daniel Dekpor (Asankrangwa Area Head), Apostle Mireku Gyamerah (Axim Area Head), and pastors from various churches within the GPCC.
