Chairman Applauds Apostle M. C. Asiedu As He Retires From Active Ministry

It was a dream come true, a moment of joy and a day of celebration when Apostle Michael Collins Asiedu of Suame Area was retired from the active ministry of The Church of Pentecost after 31 years of meritorious service to God and the church.

The retirement service, which took place on Sunday, November 15, 2020, at the Tetelestai Temple in the Suame Area, was officiated by the Chairman of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye.

Delivering the sermon on the topic, “The True Value of Our Work Is With The Lord,” Apostle Nyamekye explained that the reward of the believer’s work on earth is not necessarily in the material gains they acquire, rather, the true reward of every believer’s work is in the impact they make in the world and the lives of others.

“When we believe in Jesus, what matters is not the money we have, or the cars we buy, or the titles we carry, what flows through us to become a blessing to others; that is what really matters,” he opined.

Reading from John 7:38, the Chairman revealed that God has placed in each believer streams of living water for the purpose of blessing their world and their generation, stressing that “the true measure of a believer’s worth is based on the extent to which the living water deposited in them is flowing through them to impact others.”

Drawing lessons from the story of the Samaritan woman, Apostle Nyamekye noted that “when Jesus said that He possesses water that could forever quench the thirst of the Samaritan woman, she immediately desired for that water. This, according to him, implied that “there are people in this world who also desire and thirst for the living water that we (believers) possess, so if we fail to let it flow, the world will be in a drought and the people therein would thirst. However, if we let the streams of living water flow into our world, we will indeed make the world a better place.”

He posited that although Apostle M. C. Asiedu may be retiring, the streams of living waters that have flowed through him will still keep flowing to bless others that he may not even have come into contact with.

Apostle Nyamekye, therefore, advised ministers to focus less on material gains and rather devote themselves to making their inner rivers flow to bless humanity.

Michael Collins Asiedu was born on November 29, 1955, at Aboabo Sonkor near Suhum in the Eastern Region, to Opanyin Richard Kwabena Atta of Aseseaso, and Madam Grace Akua Anibea Asiedu of Larteh – Akuapem.

He holds a GCE ‘O’ Level from the Royal Society of Arts (UK). He also holds the Intermediate Certificate from the London Chamber of Commerce, a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology from Pentecost University (2012), and a Master’s Degree in Conflict, Peace and Security Management from the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Centre, Accra (2016).

Apostle M. C. Asiedu was called into full-time ministry as a Probationary Overseer in 1989 and has since served the church meritoriously and selflessly. His passion, desire, and superb work ethic have led him to serve in various capacities in the church. He also served as the Director of the Evangelism Ministry of the church for eight years (2008 to 2016).
