The Chairman of The Chuch of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, and his family have funded the construction of a new Mission House for the Asokore District of the Church, in the Ashanti Region.
Apostle Yaw Adjei-Kwarteng, Kwadaso Area Head and Executive Council Member, dedicated the new manse on February 4, 2024.
The journey to the new Mission House began in May 2022 after attending a funeral at the existing Mission House. He discussed the need for a new Mission House with the then District Pastor, Emmanuel Asamoah Aboagye.
A few months later, a piece of land was acquired at GHS 20,000.00. Apostle Nyamekye contributed GHS 21,000.00 to cover the cost of the land and its registration.
The construction officially began with a sod-cutting ceremony performed by Apostle Keneth Baffoe Antwi, Ejisu Area Head, on September 11, 2022.
Architect Elder Professor Duah from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) revealed the design details of the new Mission House. The 5-bedroom building includes two living rooms, a storeroom, and a guest room.
The Obuase Area Head of the Church, Prophet David Kankam Beditor, delivered a sermon titled “Unleashed to Live a Life that Reflects God’s Kingdom Values to Transform Your World.”
Drawing some lessons from Matthew 6:33, Prophet Beditor reminded believers that the ultimate aim in life is to go to Heaven. He asserted that the Kingdom of God, found in Jesus Christ, has many principles that followers must adhere to.
Referencing Matthew 5:5-13, the Obuase Area Head highlighted the numerous blessings in the Word of God.
He pointed out that living by God’s word attracts blessings and makes the Kingdom of God our possession. He urged believers to maintain a pure heart, a prerequisite for seeing God.
Drawing lessons from the Parable of the Prodigal Son, Prophet Kankam Beditor emphasised the themes of reconciliation and restoration. He noted that just as the father in the parable welcomed back his unworthy son, God expects his children to reconcile with others and help those who have strayed from the Kingdom of God.
