John Aidoo Is The Highest Soul Winner In Agona Swedru Area

John Aidoo, a deacon of The Church of Pentecost in the Kuntanse District of the Agona Swedru Area, single-handedly won 55 souls for Christ in 2023, making him the highest soul winner in the Area.

The Agona Swedru Area Secretary of the Church, Pastor George Osei-Asiedu, disclosed this during the Area’s 2023 End-of-Year Presbytery Meeting held recently in Swedru. 

The commitment of Deacon Aidoo to soul-winning moved the Area Head, Apostle Derek Kwaning Mireku, to instantly ordain him as an Elder of the Church at the meeting. 

With the support of his District Minister, Pastor Charles Boateng Asante, all 55 new converts have been baptised by immersion. 

Apostle Mireku, upon assumption of office, introduced award systems to honour members who commit themselves to soul-winning and other key performance indicators.

The Area Head’s passion for soul-winning resulted in the harvest of souls recorded in the Area as contained in the 2023 report. 

The Area Secretary, Pastor George Osei-Asiedu, on his part, encouraged now Elder John Aidoo and all other officers of the Church to keep doing the work of an evangelist to win more souls for Christ this year.

Evangelism Is Key To Achieving The Possessing The Nations Agenda web

Evangelism Is Key To Achieving The Possessing The Nations Agenda – Apostle Otu-Nyarko

The Twifo Praso Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Lawrence Otu-Nyarko, has asserted that embarking on aggressive evangelism is paramount because it is the key to helping the church achieve the ‘Possessing the Nations’ agenda.

According to him, evangelism is the core mandate of every Christian, so there is the need to look at it critically, for without it, people will die and suffer eternal banishment from the presence of God. 

“You have the message and all the power backing you to rescue the perishing. The salvation message to a lost soul has been given to you, so preach it without fear,” he said, adding, “You have been commissioned to preach the gospel. Preach it to whoever you come into contact with. Remember that you have been discipled to make others disciples of Christ. 

Apostle Otu-Nyarko said this when launching the Twifo Praso Area 2023 One Member, One Discipled Soul campaign, which came off at Twifo Praso Asikafo Assembly church auditorium on Sunday, November 5, 2023.

Reading from Matthew 28:18-20 and Rom.10:9-15, Apostle Otu-Nyarko spoke on the topic: “Repositioned to go and tell.” 

As part of the project, members embarked on personal evangelism, street evangelism, breakfast meetings, and rallies. 

Present at the launching ceremony were Mrs Doris Otu-Nyarko (wife of the Area Head), Ministry Leaders and their executives, and the Area pastorate and their spouses.

He said that Scripture admonishes Christians to visit those in prisons, and in doing that you have done it for the Lord.

The Officer-in-Charge, DSP Oscar Piuyire, expressed their profound gratitude to the Bolga Area for the kind gesture and usual support to the prisons.

In attendance were the Area Head’s wife, Mrs. Rosemond Amankwaa, Area Executive Committee members, Pastor Evans Kwasi Bawomiah, who is also the Area Children ministry leader and Pastor Julius Aryee.

Bawku Area Records 2,332 Souls During Aggressive Evangelism Month

The Bawku Area of The Church of Pentecost achieved a significant milestone by recording 2,332 souls during the recently observed Aggressive Evangelism Month last November.

The initiative, dubbed the ‘One Member; One Discipled Soul (1M1DS) project,’ aimed at encouraging members to engage in aggressive evangelism exercises to lead many into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

The project was officially launched by the Area head, Pastor Eric Gyacham, on October 24, 2023, at the Area level. District ministers and presiding leaders were also tasked to replicate the same at their respective districts and local assemblies.

During the launch, the Area Head outlined various strategies for the exercise and encouraged ministers and leaders to teach and encourage all their members to be involved.

Particular emphasis was placed on house-to-house and personal evangelism. Smaller groups within the assemblies were created and tasked to carry out this form of evangelism.

Members were also encouraged to intentionally identify and build friendships with unbelievers and ultimately lead them to Christ.

Proper records were kept for weekly monitoring and evaluations. Individuals who performed well were identified and appreciated to serve as motivation to others.

Additionally, prayers were raised across all locals for this exercise weekly.

The success of the 1M1DS project in the Bawku Area underscores the dedication and commitment of the church community to fulfilling its vision of winning souls for God.

Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of the harvest, for granting the Church this massive yield.

According to the leadership of the Area, pragmatic efforts are underway to disciple the converts into full membership.

The Bawku Area of The Church of Pentecost, led by Pastor Eric Gyacham, organised six mega crusades in the 2023 calendar year, resulting in a total of 929 souls.

The crusades took place across the three zones of the Area.

The first crusade of the year took place at Bansi Town Square from February 1 to 3, 2023, recording 74 souls, including 21 children, of whom 42 were baptised in water.

Exactly a month later, a three-day crusade was held at Apondabogo town from March 1 to 4, 2023, successfully recording a total of 129 adult souls, while 64 children accepted Christ. All the adult souls underwent water baptism.

Similar crusades took place at Bugri in the Kugsabilia District and Zebilla Town from March 15 to 17 and May 31 to June 2, respectively.

The Bugri crusade saw 38 adults surrendering their lives to Christ, with two undergoing water baptism. Nineteen children were also won for Christ. Despite low water baptism due to religious inhibitions, 47 souls experienced the power of God, speaking in tongues during this crusade.

On the other hand, the Zebilla crusade recorded 53 souls, including 15 children. Thirty-three of the adult souls underwent water baptism.

From September 27 to 29, the Area organised another crusade at Takore in the Songo District, winning a total of 116 souls (85 adults and 31 children). Fifty of the adult souls were successfully baptised in water, with 24 receiving Holy Spirit baptism.

In 2023, the Bawku Area, through its crusades, won 929 souls (including 290 children), with 423 of the new converts undergoing water baptism.

Additionally, numerous spectacular events were recorded at the various crusades to the glory of God.

The Church of Pentecost remains committed to the core mandate of evangelism as it rigorously pursues the Great Commission. By the grace of God, the efforts of the church have not been fruitless, as many have been led to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

The gift of salvation that Christ offers is available to all who believe and accept Him as Lord and personal Saviour.

You can also do the same by saying this simple prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead for my justification. I turn from my sins and invite you to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow you as my Lord and Saviour.”

If you have sincerely said this prayer, then you are Born Again. Please find any branch of The Church of Pentecost nearby or any Bible-believing church to learn more about your newfound faith.

16 Receive Instant Healing On Day 1 Of The Offinso for Christ Crusade web

16 Receive Instant Healing On Day 1 Of The “Offinso for Christ” Crusade

The much-anticipated crusade in the Offinso Area of The Church of Pentecost, Offinso for Christ Crusade, dubbed “Gospel and Healing Crusade,” has taken off smoothly, with 16 people receiving instant healing.

The four-day crusade began on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, with over 650 people attending both first and second services at the Offinso Newtown Assembly of The Church of Pentecost.

Speaking at the event, the Offinso Area Head, Apostle Samuel Edzii Davidson, advised the congregants to present their bodies as a living sacrifice unto the Lord.

Elaborating on the theme, “The God Of Fire,” Apostle Davidson revealed that since our God is a consuming fire, we must catch that fire as children of God to become Classical Pentecostal Firebrand Christians.

One way of doing that, he noted, is presenting ourselves as a living sacrifice unto the Lord (Romans 12:1&2).

Touching on the theme of the event, he disclosed that God, being a consuming fire, burns all negativities and bondages in our lives such as the bondage of iniquity, bondage of passivity, bondage of timidity, and bondage of infirmity.

Quoting Malachi 4:2, Apostle Davidson hinted that “Jesus is the fire of righteousness, so if the name of Jesus is believed and mentioned with faith, our infirmities will be consumed by fire.”

During the event, 16 people received instant healing from various ailments, as many others were touched by the Holy Spirit during the prayers led by the Area Head. To the glory of God, five souls were won and baptised in water.

The Offinso Crusade is jointly organised by the Offinso Area and Soul Partners International, United States of America.

In attendance today were: Mrs. Winnifred Edzii Davidson (Wife of the Area Head), Pastor George Kyeremanteng (Area Secretary), Apostle Joseph Gyemfi (Elohim Charismatic Ministry), and Offinso GPCC Organising Secretary, as well as the Area pastorate and their wives.

La Area Targets 1,500 Souls In 1M1D Soul Project

The La Area of The Church of Pentecost seeks to win 1,500 souls for Christ in the One Member, One Discipled Soul (1M1D) project scheduled between November and December this year.

Apostle Dr Dieudonne Komla Nuekpe, La Area Head and Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, revealed this during the launch of the church’s evangelistic drive at the Dr Thomas Wyatt Memorial Temple (Accra Newtown Zone) on Sunday, October 29.

The event, attended by the Chairman of the Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, was held simultaneously in other Zonal Centres in La Area.

Taking Scripture references from Jude 1:7, 23 as well as Revelation 20:14 and 15, Apostle Dr Nuekpe reiterated the urgency to reclaim certain people who are wavering in the faith, growing cold in their love for God and snatching others from hell through whatever way possible.

Apostle Dr Nuekpe emphasised the need to trumpet that Jesus Christ is the only accredited Saviour of the world. He alone is accredited to save humanity from eternal damnation.

He further charged believers to pray for the Holy Spirit to baptise the souls that would be won so that they would be firmly established in Christ.

The Area Head implored members to harness dawn broadcasting, rallies, campaigns, hospital visitations, visits to bus stations and beaches, and using traditional and other social media platforms to make the evangelistic drive a success.

Also in attendance were Apostle Prof Peter Ohene Kyei (Rtd), former Rector of the Pentecost University, Mrs Mary Nyamekye, wife of the Chairman, the pastorate in La Area and their wives.

Man On the Brink Of Suicide Surrenders To Christ At “Jesus Saves Crusade” web

Man On the Brink Of Suicide Surrenders To Christ At “Jesus Saves Crusade”

In a remarkable turn of events, a man teetering on the edge of suicide found salvation in Christ during the concluding day of the “Jesus Saves Crusade,” organised by the Darkuman District in the Kaneshie Area of The Church of Pentecost.

On the final day of the three-day crusade held at the Darkuman Circle station, a man, later identified as Nana Poku Serebour, courageously stepped forward during the altar call to surrender his life to Christ.

Before embracing Christ as his Lord and Saviour, Nana Poku Serebour handed over a “Rapid Rat Killer” to the Church elders, revealing his intent to end his life that very evening due to the overwhelming struggles he faced.

He expressed being an ex-convict, left homeless and jobless, with no connections to his family.

Nana Poku Serebour lamented his dire circumstances, citing profound suffering and a loss of hope in life as reasons for contemplating suicide. In a desperate act, he obtained a lethal substance with the intent to consume it in a hidden location.

However, the transformative power of the Crusade intervened. Upon hearing the word of God and engaging with compassionate brethren, Nana Poku Serebour had a change of heart, choosing to surrender his life to Christ.

Counselors provided additional guidance on Christ and salvation, helping him understand the profound significance of this decision.

The church leadership, moved by his plight, assured Nana Poku Serebour that they would support him in finding solace under the protection of God, providing assistance to rebuild his life and become a valuable member of society.

The man was overjoyed and grateful for his new life. He thanked God and the church for saving him from death and despair.
