Apostle Samuel Yaw Antwi, the Cape Coast Area Head and an Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, on Sunday, May 15, 2022, dedicated the ultra-modern Peniel Assembly church building in the Oguaa Abura District, which has now been named after Pastor James William Sackey (of blessed memory).
Pastor Sackey was the founder of the Bombers Squad, an evangelistic group credited for planting several assemblies of the Church in the Greater-Accra region. He is also known to have worked closely with the founder of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor James McKeown.
Preaching at the event, Pastor Franklin Agbovi-Hushie of the OLA District charged the members to make the temple a house of prayer indeed.
Reading from Mathew 21:12-13 and 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, he stated that the temple is not a place for immorality nor selling and buying, but a house of prayer.
Pastor Agbovi-Hushie also called on ministers and officers to speak against or boldly confront evil and ungodly deeds or lifestyles in the Church and society.
Apostle S. Y. Antwi, in his remarks, commended the Oguaa Abura District Minister, Pastor Enoch Nii Akrashie, the officers and members of the district for a wonderful job done in putting up such a great edifice.
The family of the late Pastor J.W. Sackey thanked The Church of Pentecost for the honour done to their late father and also donated 50 tambourines, an LED projector and screen, and a 24-inch television to the assembly.
The ceremony was attended by Mrs. Margaret Serwaa Antwi (Wife of the Area Head), past ministers of the Oguaa Abura District, the Cape Coast Area pastorate, traditional chiefs of Oguaa Abura, and the Assemblyman of the Oguaa Abura Electoral Area.
