Ashanti Bekwai Area Gets 201 New Officers

Two hundred and one individuals in the Ashanti Bekwai Area of The Church of Pentecost have been ordained as officers to serve God and the Church as church leaders.

The ordination service occurred at the Area Officers’ retreat held on Friday, November 24, 2023, at the Bekwai Central Assembly.

The programme, which had Apostle Michael Collins Asiedu (Rtd.) as the guest speaker, centered around the theme “Lord, Stretch Forth Your Hand” (Acts 4:30).

Speaking at the event, Apostle M.C. Asiedu emphasised that leadership is service, meant for servants but not for novices (1 Timothy 3:1-7, Ecclesiastes 10:16-19).

He asserted that the success of the church relies on its leaders, highlighting faithfulness as a crucial requirement in leadership (1 Corinthians 4:1-2, Luke 16:10-12).

Apostle Asiedu stressed the necessity of strong leadership for the church’s health (Acts 20:28), stating, “The absence of strong leaders makes room for all non-sense in the church.”

He underscored that God places a high premium on Christian leadership, often calling individuals who may not initially qualify (Exodus 3:7-12). God, however, qualifies them by stretching forth His hand to prepare, equip, and anoint them for leadership.

Highlighting that God shapes those He calls into what He desires (Mark 1:17), Apostle Asiedu concluded by stating that the one whom God calls owes allegiance to God.

Pastor Seth Ansah led the presbytery in an intensive prayer.

Subsequently, Apostle Fred Tiakor guided the candidates in making a public declaration of their acceptance to serve as non-paid officers of the church, and prayed ordained into their respective offices.

In total, 45 elders, 64 deacons, and 92 deaconesses were ordained at the event.

The officers’ retreat was attended by a total of 705 officers, along with Ministers and Wives in the Area.
