Avenor District Retires 7 Dedicated Officers

The Avenor District in the La Area of The Church of Pentecost organised a heartfelt retirement service for seven dedicated officers who served with distinction in the district.

The service occurred on Sunday, June 18, 2023, at the Avenor Central Temple.

The retiring officers include Elder Eugene Aboagye Amoah, who dedicated 34 years of service; Elder George Bram Addo, who served for 28 years; Elder Emmanuel Debrah Danso, who contributed for 20 years; Deacon Daniel Kumi Darko, with 22 years of service; Deaconess Doris Nkansah, with 22 years of service; Deaconess Grace Ofori Frimpong, with 22 years of service; and Deaconess Mispah Azah, with 22 years of service.

Addressing the congregation on the topic “Reposition Yourself So That No One Takes Away Your Crown,” Pastor James Denis Osei Assibey, the Mamobi District Minister, expounded on the various types of crowns and rewards that await believers on the day of judgment.

He explained that a crown symbolises authority and power, an ornamental headpiece representing sovereignty, which is bestowed upon those who complete a race, or a course or faithfully serve God during their lifetime.

“Every Christian will receive a crown according to their works and the service rendered unto God,” he affirmed.

Pastor Assibey stressed that Christians who genuinely love God and persevere through trials and persecution without compromising with the world would receive the crown of life in heaven.

Quoting from 2 Timothy 4:8, he emphasised that the crown of righteousness awaits those who live righteously in thought and character, urging believers to be conscious of God’s presence and strive to please Him in all aspects of their lives.

He further highlighted that the crown of rejoicing will be awarded to Christians who actively reach out to the unreached, those who lead others to Christ and nurture them to stand firm until the end.

Pastor Assibey, therefore, encouraged believers, especially leaders who have faithfully served God, to strive for the crown of glory.

“This crown, reserved solely for leaders, possesses an enduring beauty,” he remarked.

The retirement service was a fitting tribute to honour these seven officers’ exceptional dedication and commitment. Their selfless service has left an indelible mark on the Avenor District and inspires others to follow.
