The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has called on Children’s Ministry leaders and workers at the various levels of the Church to prioritise evangelism in order to lead more children to Christ.
He made this statement during his keynote address at the ongoing Foundation Builders’ Conference (FBC’23) at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, this morning.
In his address, Apostle Nyamekye advised the children’s workers not to focus solely on the children within the church but also to minister to other children in their respective communities.
He emphasised the importance of making themselves available to the entire community, as the potential for spreading the Gospel among children extends far beyond the church walls.
“Do not be satisfied with only the children under your immediate care; remember that the whole community is ripe for the taking. Endeavour to possess your community for Christ,” he urged.
The Chairman further encouraged children’s workers to employ various evangelistic methods to effectively engage with individuals in their communities.
He also shared his personal testimony, acknowledging the profound impact the Children’s Ministry had on his own spiritual foundation.
“The Children’s Ministry accounts for 31% of the entire membership of The Church of Pentecost worldwide. Let us strive to double the Children’s membership by the end of the year,” Apostle Nyamekye declared.
Preaching on the topic, “The Determination to Serve and the Delight Of Service”, at the event, the Chairman emphasised the foundational aspect of any development and how it often goes unrecognised.
Drawing parallels, he acknowledged that children’s workers might not receive public recognition for their instrumental role in establishing a solid Christian foundation for the children but should continue to serve the Lord with zeal.
Quoting John 21:15, Apostle Nyamekye outlined how cultivating a deeper love for God enables children’s workers to find delight in their service. This love and passion, he explained, would reignite their zeal in nurturing children’s faith and empower them to overcome the challenges they face.
Apostle Nyamekye concluded his message by commending the children’s workers for their valuable service and reminding them that their work is ultimately in service to the Lord.
