The New Tafo Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised a farewell service in honour of the outgone Area Women’s Ministry leadership at the M. K. Yeboah Temple, Krofrom in Kumasi.
The event, which was chaired by the Area Head, Apostle Samuel Antwi, took place on October 20, 2020. It was attended by members of the ministry, family and friends of the reviewed leaders and the pastorate in the Area and their wives, among others.
The reviewed leaders served the ministry for six years. They are: Deaconess Deborah Ntim (Area Leader), Deaconess Esther Boakye Duah alias Mama Esther, a popular gospel artiste (Assistant Leader), Deaconess Rosemond Love Kusi (Secretary), Deaconess Patricia Frimpong (Treasurer), Deaconess Gloria Asiedu and Deaconess Comfort Osei (Members).
The new Area leaders are: Deaconess Mavis Addai (Area Leader), Deaconess Mercy Antwi Duah (Assistant), Deaconess Portia Oppong Ntiamoah (Secretary), Deaconess Esther Acheampong (Financial Secretary), Deaconess Doris Yeboah (Treasurer), Deaconess Theresa Osei (Member), and Mrs. Margaret Dwamenah Asante (Pastors Wives’ Representative).
The Area Head, Apostle Samuel Antwi, in a sermonette stated the need for believers to contend for the faith (Jude 3) regardless of their situations and ranks. He also stated the need for Christians to contend for the gospel and prayer.
In her testimony, the new Area Leader, Deaconess Mavis Addai, said the reviewed Area leaders achieved a lot of successes to advance the cause of the Women’s Ministry in the Area due to their affable and God-fearing attitude.
Joined by their husbands, Deaconess Deborah Ntim (the outgone Area leader), on behalf of her colleagues, appreciated the support of all, including the outgone National Women’s Ministry Executives led by Deaconess Mrs. Grace Lucy Yeboah-Asuama, the current and past Area Heads and their wives, pastors and their wives, District Women’s Ministry Executives, members of the ministry, family and all stakeholders of the ministry.
Mrs. Mary Antwi (wife of the Area Head), joined by Mrs. Elizabeth Asante (wife of the former Area Head), on behalf of the ministry, presented citations to the outgone Area leaders.
