The Asamankese Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised a two-day strategic retreat for ministers and their wives, key office holders including district executive committee members, presiding elders, ministry leaders and their assistants and other stakeholders in the Area.
The retreat took place from 30th to 31st January, 2020 at the James McKeown Memorial Temple in Asamankese, under the theme, “A Glorious Church to Possess the Nations.”
In his opening address, the Area Head, Pastor Isaac Ekow Eshun, indicated that the retreat had become necessary since the Vision 2023 dubbed ‘Possessing the Nations’ requires strategic approaches to see to its successful implementation.
Reading from Isaiah 40:30-31, he mentioned that the retreat was a period of waiting on the Lord for strength and power to possess the nations. He, therefore, charged the participants to open up and embrace the new wind of change [Vision 2023] which, he said, is the heartbeat of God for His Church for the next five years.
He also charged the officers to familiarize themselves with the vision document which has become the focus of the church.
Some of the topics treated and discussed included: The Area’s 3-Year Strategic Plan, Chairing a Pentecostal Service, Tithing and Giving in The Church of Pentecost, some aspects of the Vision 2023, Holistic Evangelism, among others.
In his closing remarks, Pastor Isaac Ekow Eshun charged the participants to run with the Vision 2023 and remain committed and faithful to it so as to achieve good results.
The retreat was crowned with an impartation service.
