The Assin Foso Area of The Church of Pentecost has inaugurated the Assin Foso branch of the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC).
The English-speaking cosmopolitan church was carved out of the Foso Station District of the church.
The inaugural ceremony which coincided with the welcome service for the pioneer Resident Minister, Pastor Enoch Amoah, and his family was held on August 31, 2022, at the Hall of Champions of PIWC-Assin Foso. The service was officiated by the Area Head, Apostle Frederick Kweku Andoh.
In a brief sermon on the topic, “The Word to the Called,” Apostle Andoh admonished Christians who feel called not to be only enthused with the privileges attached to the call, but also carry out the assigned responsibilities as well.
Quoting from Isaiah 42:5-9, Apostle Andoh said that God calls for a purpose, and for those He calls, He equips to succeed.
“God equips His called ones through His word. Through His word, He reveals Himself, His purpose, and His ways to the called,” he noted.
Concluding his message, Apostle Frederick Andoh encouraged all who feel called to be a blessing to others and also endeavour to bring glory to the Lord.
PIWC-Assin Foso was born out of the need to bridge the language barrier to accommodate an expatriate from Denmark in 1995. The then District Minister, the late Pastor Matthew Tetteh Wayoe, took the opportunity to start an English assembly to meet that need which has over the years grown to its present state.
Inaugurating the worship centre, Apostle Andoh explained that the concept of PIWC is a special ministry of The Church of Pentecost dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of persons who are exposed to or more comfortable with the Western form of worship, as well as persons who are considered “elite” in society.
He, therefore, encouraged professionals in the church to evangelise to their colleagues and invite them to church.
In attendance were a cross-section of the pastorate and their wives in the Area, officers and family members of the new minister, among others.
