The Youth Ministry of the Mamponteng District in the Old Tafo Area of The Church of Pentecost, on Sunday evening, September 3, 2023, embarked on a street praise and worship programme at Fawoade School Junction. 

The event, held under the theme: “The Lord Reigns” – Psalm 97, was aimed at connecting all hearts to bring glory to the Almighty God and to save the pershing.

Members and non-members of the Church thronged the event venue and joined in singing praises to the Lord as some members of the Youth Ministry shared the Gospel with the passersby and distributed Gospel tracts as well.

The District and the Area mass choir enlivened the occasion with Pentecostal songs and later zoomed into a time of worship as many glorified the name of the Lord Jesus.

An altar call made by Elder Lord Agyin, saw five persons surrendering their lives to Jesus.

The District Youth Leader, Elder Samuel Odonkor, noted that the power of godly music is instrumental in renewing minds and breaking chains that have held people captive, acknowledging the power of worship to bring deliverance.

He stressed that street praise and worship is another means of winning souls for Christ and, therefore, called on other districts to replicate the exercise.

The District Assistant Youth Leader, Sylvester Obeng, hinted that the ministry will keep on organising such programmes at vantage points in the district to win more souls for Christ Jesus.

Keep The Word Of God In Your Heart –Apostle Hagan Tells Christians

The Youth Ministry Director of The Church Of Pentecost, Apostle Ebenezer Hagan, has advised Christians to keep the word of God in their hearts in order to build personal and intimate relationship with Him.

He gave this advice on the second day of the maiden edition of on ongoing “ABIDEDOES Conference” being organised by the Women’s Ministry of The Church Of Pentecost.

Drawing inspiration from sacred scriptures, specifically Genesis 3:8 and John 14:23, Apostle Hagan shed light on the timeless journey of communion between humanity and God, as witnessed in the Garden of Eden.

Apostle Hagan reaffirmed that the divine connection between God and humanity, as experienced in the Garden of Eden, endures to this day.

“Just as God walked with Adam and Eve in the cool of the Garden of Eden, He continues His work of drawing near to those who seek Him earnestly. This enduring invitation to communion remains an eternal beacon for nurturing personal intimacy with the Creator”, he asserted.

Apostle Hagan expounded on John 14:23, highlighting its profound message: obedience to God’s commands engenders a relationship of love between the individual and the Divine.

“As believers obey God’s precepts, they discover a reciprocated love from their Creator. This mutual love invites believers to extend the same love to one another, fostering harmonious relationships”, he said.

The Youth Director urged believers to set aside regular, dedicated time for personal devotions, emphasizing the importance of seeking God’s presence and understanding.

Quoting Psalm 5:3, he encouraged believers to prioritize moments of solitude with the Divine, allowing their friendship with God to flourish day by day.

Citing Jeremiah 33:3, he stressed the significance of daily seeking God and advised having a dedicated time to meet with God, ideally every day.

He aslo encouraged Christians to engage with God through His Word, meditating on His teachings, as exemplified in Joshua 1:8.

Apostle Hagan underscored the need for meticulous attention to the word of God, highlighting that God communicates with His children through His teachings.

“Building personal intimacy with God requires active engagement with His word, attentive listening to His voice, and a commitment to obeying His commandments”, he expounded.

Apostle Ebenezer Hagan encouraged believers to embrace the Word as a personal guide, recommending that they take notes during sermons to minimize distractions.

He also advised them to strive for holiness and purity in their daily lives, refraining from sinful practices.

“Building personal intimacy with God goes beyond dedicating time to Him; it encompasses living in personal purity”, the Youth Director added.

He reminded them that even when faced with desires like marriage, adhering to God’s plan ultimately leads to fulfillment.

Citing Psalm 119:10, Apostle Hagan stressed that living in purity involves walking in accordance with the Word of God and following His commandments faithfully.

Apostle Hagan concluded by reiterating the importance of grounding one’s Christian journey in the Word of God, as emphasized in Hebrews 12:14-15.

He reminded believers that living in alignment with the Word not only strengthens their relationship with God but also guides them to live lives marked by integrity, purity, and obedience to God’s divine will.

The “ABIDEDOES Conference” being organised by the Women’s Ministry of The Church Of Pentecost began yesterday, September 14, 2023 and is expected to end tomorrow, September 16, 2023.


PENSA-KNUST’s “Rural Evangelism” Yields 1,073 Souls web

PENSA-KNUST’s “Rural Evangelism” Yields 1,073 Souls

An evangelism outreach jointly organised by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) branch of the Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) and the Asokwa area of The Church of Pentecost recorded 1,073 souls.

Dubbed “Rural Evangelism,” the annual evangelism outreach is organised by PENSA-KNUST to provide its members with an avenue to propagate the gospel, heralding the second coming of Christ in rural areas. It also aims to equip the students as spiritual warriors to reach the nations at all times and everywhere.

The six-day programme commenced on Tuesday, August 29, and concluded on Sunday, September 3, 2023. It was themed “Jesus Christ! The Giver of Eternal Life,” drawing scriptural inspiration from Romans 3:23-24 and John 3:16.

Before the evangelism exercise, the student-missionaries (militants) embarked on a 15-day fasting and prayer period to spiritually prepare themselves for the task ahead. Training sessions were also conducted for the leaders of the various groups (commandants) and their chefs to equip them with the necessary skills for the crusade. An all-night session was organized for the church to pray for the success of the village crusade in the mission field.

The team was dispatched to 13 centers in all the districts of the Area, namely Sokoban Centre I, Sokoban Centre II, Kyekyewere Centre, Kurofoforom Centre I, Kurofoforom Centre II, Konkori Centre, Ahinsan Centre, Aduapong Centre, Appiadu Centre, Kwanwoma Centre, Asokwa-PIWC Centre, Bedaase Centre, and Bekwaimin Centre. Each center had a commandant who oversaw all the evangelistic activities.

The team employed various evangelism strategies, including dawn broadcasting, one-on-one evangelism, mini-rallies, movie evangelism, house-to-house evangelism, ghetto evangelism, mall evangelism, sports evangelism, schools’ outreach, Bible Studies, follow-up on the souls won, and intensive prayers in the various centers.

Their efforts yielded 1,073 souls, with 164 of them won through school outreach. Out of the total souls won, 157 were baptized in water, while 168 received Holy Spirit baptism.

It is also worth mentioning that God confirmed the gospel message with many signs and wonders. A woman paralyzed for six years miraculously rose up and walked. At Bekwaimin, a man who had been bedridden for three months with generalized edema received healing and began to walk again. Another woman with blurry vision regained her sight clearly.

Also, a woman received healing from epilepsy during one of the evening crusades. Another woman, paralyzed for 20 years, experienced instant healing. A man began to walk again after four years of paralysis, and a gentleman paralyzed for 16 years dropped his crutches and started walking.

The Resident Campus Minister, Pastor Jonathan Ebo Quaye, and the principal executives of PENSA-KNUST (President, Vice President, and Secretary) and the Financial Secretary visited all centers throughout the evangelism period, baptizing converts in water and the Holy Spirit.

He acknowledged the Asokwa Area Head, Apostles Peter Kofi Dzemekey, Apostle J.I.T. Buertey of PIWC-Asokwa, Pastor Johnson Asiedu of Ahinsan District, Pastor Isaac Baah Yeboah of Kurofoforum District, Pastor Elisha Tweneboa Kodua of Appiadu District, Pastor Michael Boachie of Konkori District, Pastor Kojo Aboagye of Sokoban District, and Pastor Samuel Otu Larbi of Kwanwoma District for their significant contributions to the success of the outreach.

This event took place on September 9, 2023, at the ongoing PENSA Ghana Leaders’ Retreat (PGLR), held at the PENSA Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Building Site.

During the launch ceremony, the Youth Director passionately explained that the PENSA Discipleship Program (PDP) is a distinctive initiative born out of the Youth Ministry’s overarching vision: “Growing Deep Roots in Christ, Leading for Maximum Impact, Reaching Everyone, and Taking Over Everywhere for Jesus,” firmly rooted in the scriptures of Colossians 2:6,7 and 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20.

He emphasised that the program’s primary goal is to help young individuals establish godly connections and inspire one another to deepen their faith in Christ and actively pursue acts of goodness.

This newly introduced manual will be instrumental in training PDP leaders and will serve as the blueprint for the efficient implementation of the program.

Following the Director’s address, the Deputy Youth Director, Elder Professor Appau Asante, offered heartfelt prayers for the success of the PDP.

Apostle Hagan then formally presented the manual to the leadership of PENSA Ghana.

In response, Elder Samuel Boahen, the coordinator of PENSA Ghana, expressed gratitude on behalf of the organization and pledged full commitment to ensuring the effective execution of the manual.

The ongoing PENSA Leaders’ Retreat has drawn the participation of over 700 student leaders from the Church, PENSA Traveling Secretaries, resident campus ministers, and their spouses, along with members of the National Executive Committee of the Youth Ministry.

This annual retreat, which serves as a nurturing ground for current and future leaders within the Church and the nation, is designed to equip, refine leadership skills, and unleash the spiritual gifts of all participants to have a profound impact on campuses and the nation as a whole.

Unite For The Cause Of The Lord – Mrs Georgina Manu Advises Christians web

Unite For The Cause Of The Lord–MrsGeorgina Manu Advises Christians

Mrs Georgina Manu, the wife of the Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) Travelling Secretary for Mampong Sector, has called on Christians to unite for the cause of the Lord.

She made the call recently when preaching at Akenten Appiah Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED)Asante Mampong Campus on the theme: “Unity is Strength” at the handover service of the Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA).

She stressed the need for the newly called executives to come together and advance the cause of the work of the Lord.

She said marriage vows can unite people for one cause. She said blood is thicker than water; hence, it binds family members together. Therefore, the blood of Jesus has bonded all Christians together. 

Mrs Manu charged Christians to put aside every form of language, class, and tribe when they come together because the blood of Jesus binds them together.

Using Acts 2:1-4 and Psalm 133: 1-4 as scripture references, she emphasised the need for Christians to eschew pride, status and class but rather work together for a common goal in preparing the saints for Heaven. 

She said the disciples of Jesus united with one goal: waiting for the promised Holy Spirit; hence, God poured out the Holy Spirit unto them.

“The disciples had their breakthrough because they were together,” she pointed out.

She concluded her message by saying that Jesus Christ was humble to the extent that he washed his disciples’ feet, saying, “Loving one another is the key to unity.”

Speaking at the event, which took place on Saturday, August 5, 2023, in the church’s auditorium at Mawuli Estate in Ho, Mr Joseph Mawuena, a Chief Examiner and the Regional Vice-Chairman of the Scripture Union took the candidates through the ‘dos and don’ts’ before, during and after the examination.

He advised them to desist from learning deep into the night and refrain from engaging in any substances or drugs in their efforts to study.

“Prepare yourselves psychologically, spiritually and physically. Go early and know your sitting place and have the search by invigilators,” he said, adding, “Search yourselves first and be sure of having no unwanted items.”

Mr Joseph Mawuena asked the candidates to “own the answer booklet by writing how your name is registered for the exams. Write your index number and the name of the paper.”

He further advised them to read the instructions carefully and be conversant with the rubrics, saying, “It is necessary to write your index number; know it off head. Subject yourself to the instructions and pass well. Read through the questions and make your selections. Answer your questions in the order you can easily tackle. A fresh question must be started on a fresh page.” 

He asked the candidates to comport themselves and not be in a hurry to go out after they had finished answering the questions.

The Presiding Elder, Albert Abakah-Yawson, assured the candidates of the provisions of God in the examination.
