Baakoniaba District Builds Office Block For Nwawasua Pentecost Child And Youth Development Centre

The Baakoniaba District of The Church of Pentecost in the Sunyani Area has constructed an office block for the Nwawasua Pentecost Child and Youth Development Centre in the Bono Region.

The facility which was constructed at the cost of GH¢ 49,735.00 was dedicated by the Sunyani Area Head, Apostle Mark Obeng Andoh, on Friday, June 11, 2021.

The Nwawasua Pentecost Child and Youth Development Centre is a programme partnership between Compassion International and The Church of Pentecost, Baakoniaba District.

The Centre, which was opened in May 2017, is presently catering for 258 children and their families. The objective of the programme is to release children and families from extreme poverty in the name of Jesus through education, skills training and care-giver empowerment.

The construction of the office block started when the partnership programme began in 2017 under Pastor Isaac Ennin Quaicoe, the then District Minister. The current District Minister, Pastor Joseph Awotwe, who took over the administration of the district in 2018, pursued the project through to completion. The office building comprises an office for the programme staff, store room and washrooms.

Nana Kwaku Atuahene, the Chief of Nwawasua, acknowledged and enumerated various developmental projects that The Church of Pentecost has championed in the community. He mentioned the child and youth development centre which, he said, has brought great relief to the less privileged, the construction of a public toilet facility, a nice Community-Based Church Building (CBCB) at Fawokro, and the office block and kitchen for the child and youth development centre.

According to the chief, the projects have given the community a facelift. He, therefore, praised The Church of Pentecost for the good work and promised to offer parcels of land to the church to pursue future projects in the community.

The Baakoniaba District Minister, Pastor Joseph Awotwe, expressed his appreciation to the leadership of the church and the members for the project.

Apostle Obeng Andoh also took the opportunity to lay the foundation stone for the Fawokro Assembly Church building and ordained 11 Officers at Fawokro.

In a brief sermon, Pastor Joseph Quaicoo of Fiapre District, quoted from 1 Peter 2:4-5 and Romans 12:1 and said that the believer is called as a priest or spiritual temple for the Lord.

He emphasized, therefore, that the foundation of the believer should be laid on Christ and dedicated to Him as holy and be offered as sacrifices to the Lord.
