PENSA Ghana Holds Leaders’ Retreat

Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) Ghana has organised a 3-day retreat for more than 700 PENSA leaders of various educational institutions in Ghana.

The retreat, which took place from 24th to 26th September 2021 at Atonsu Worship Centre in Kumasi, was under the theme: “Wisdom to lead, Treasures of old to tap, Nations to possess.”

Among the speakers were the Chairman of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye; the General Secretary, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi; former Chairman of the church, Apostle Dr. Michael Kwabena Ntumy and Youth Ministry Patron, Apostle Samuel Osei Asante.

Others were the Youth Ministry Director, Pastor Ebenezer Hagan; Deaconess Faustina France and Deaconess Eunice Johnson.

The speakers shared powerful messages on the theme of the conference. The participants were groomed on how to be effective leaders in their various capacities.

Apostle Eric Nyamekye, in his presentation, charged PENSA leaders to make the organisation home to all groups of people on campus. He urged them to be soul-winners and create a conducive church atmosphere for people from all walks of life by being contemporary in their way of worship as the campus is filled with youth who are inclined to the changing sceneries of the world.

The former Chairman, Apostle Dr. Ntumy, on his part, spoke on ways to obtain wisdom. He stated that the fear of God – reading and studying the word of God, praying continuously, staying at the feet of Jesus, and walking with the wise – were sure ways of obtaining wisdom.

The second day of the retreat was climaxed with an intensive prayer time where the power of the Holy Ghost was manifested. There were prophecies, visions, and various giftings of the Holy Spirit.

The retreat ended with a word ministration by the General Secretary, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, who spoke on the tenets of the church.

All Travelling Secretaries and Campus Pastors and their wives were present as well as some pastors and officers in Kumasi.

The PENSA leaders were equipped and fortified and unleashed to their various campuses to take and possess them for Christ.


Former PENSA President Adjudged 2020 Best Engineering Student 2

Former PENSA President Adjudged 2020 Best Engineering Student

A former Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) president of the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR), Emmanuel Wiafe, has been adjudged Best Engineering Student of the University and the 2020 Best Engineering Student by the Ghana Institute of Engineers (GHIE).

The colourful awards ceremony took place on Saturday, November 28, 2020, at the UENR campus in Sunyani, during the University’s 5th Virtual Congregation.

Speaking shortly after the event, Emmanuel Wiafe expressed his delight with the awards. He also expressed gratitude to all who made his educational journey at UENR a success. He called on all graduating students to endeavour to persevere even in the midst of challenges, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Narrating his patchy journey to the top, Mr. Wiafe revealed how cumbersome it was in combining academic work and church leadership. “It hasn’t been easy,” he said, adding that, “but I always work hard and try my possible best to learn, no matter how tired I feel during the day, and today, my hard work has paid off.”

“With continuous learning and hard work, one is capable of achieving anything they set their eyes on. I don’t believe anybody was born with exceptional academic capabilities, but if you learn you will know.”

According to him, the four years he spent in UENR were nothing but a blessing. He, therefore, expressed special thanks to God, the church, and ABSA bank for helping him live his dreams. [ABSA Bank, formerly Barclays Bank, gave Mr. Wiafe a full scholarship from his second year till he completed].

Emmanuel Wiafe graduated witha Bachelor of Science (BSc.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and overall Best Engineering Student. While in school, he was the Evangelism Secretary, Brong Ahafo PENSA Sector organizer, and PENSA President.

7 Receive Instant Healing During PENSA International Rwanda Mission

7 Receive Instant Healing During PENSA International Rwanda Mission

The PENSA International Team experienced the presence of the Lord and the accompanying revival that follows the move of the Holy Spirit during the March 2020 Missions outreach in Rwanda.

These supernatural occurrences took place on March 8, 2020, when they joined members of the Central Assembly of The Church of Pentecost in Rwanda (CoP-Rwanda) for the Sunday service to climax the Missions Week.

Following a word ministration on the topic: Obeying the Great Commission Message as a Nation Possesser” by Brother Emmanuel Amankwah, a member of the PENSA International Missions Team, the congregants were ushered into a time of prayer led by Bro. Stephen Amoako and Bro. Roland Appiah. During the prayer session, 16 people (7 males and 9 females) received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

After this outpour of the Holy Spirit, the church was charged up for prayer. Elder Dr Adonoo Patrick led the team to pray for healing for members who were having issues with their health. The Lord was with the team confirming His word with sign and wonders as 7 people with various types of ailments received instant healing.

Among them was Brother Happy, who was struggling from a respiratory challenge, but received instant healing. Also, Deacon Charles who could not walk properly started limping and jumping and praising God. Sister Maria, a woman of about 80 years who could not lift her hands began to lift them and turn them around.

Four of the new converts who were won during a house-to-house evangelism exercise also joined the church for the first time.

After the service, the team paid a courtesy call on the National Head, Pastor Francis Agyemang and his family to share fellowship with them.

The PENSA International Missions Team were given a warm reception in Rwanda and were hosted by the 2nd National Legal Representative of CoP-Rwanda; Pastor Felicien Twagiramungu and Overseer Bimenyimana Xavier as well as three elders and two deaconesses of the church during their stay in the east-central African country.
