Chairman Climaxes Afram Plains Area Tour

The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has ended his four-day ministerial visit in the Afram Plains Area of the church.

The tour which began on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, ended on Sunday, March 13, 2022. It saw the Chairman of the church visiting the Dwarf Island, Ekye, Nton-Aboma and the three zonal areas in Maame Krobo, Tease, and Donkorkrom.

Addressing the members of the Atakora and Donkorkrom Districts in a joint service on the topic: “The Church As the Equipping Centre in Carrying out the Great Commission,” Apostle Nyamekye said that Rev. James McKeown came to Ghana to sow a seed on March 4, 1937, the results which we see today.

Apostle Nyamekye said this during the McKeown Missions Week climax on Sunday, March 13, 2022, at the Donkorkrom Central Auditorium.

“Today, the seed sown has harvested into multiple folds and we are all products of this seed, The Church of Pentecost,” he said.

According to the Chairman of the Church, the Great Commission was given to the disciples by Jesus Christ, to spread the gospel all over the world (Matthew 28:18-20).

He stated that: “The mandate of the Great Commission is bigger than evangelism, which is the proclamation of the gospel, but the great commission is to make disciples for Christ”.

He added: “The church is not the focus of the Great Commission, yet the church is the most important tool to achieve the commission.”

He noted that the church is the equipping centre, a training ground where believers are prepared as an army of God to impact the society.

He further urged Christians to make maximum impact as the salt and light of the world; transforming every sphere of the society.

He iterated that the early church had a national focus, where their songs demonstrated the urgency of the commission as they possessed the nations for Christ.

“We must demonstrate the principles of the kingdom in the world. These are the principles of work, service, dignity of labour, respect for all, value of honesty and the value of kindness,” he charged.

The Chairman of the Church, on Wednesday, March 9, visited the Atakora Chief, Nana Akuamoah Boateng Tano II, where he spoke about the humanitarian efforts and activities of the church in the area, and the plans to strengthen the church-palace relationship through the Chieftaincy Ministry of the church. Later in the evening, he also met the 21 ministers and wives in the area.

On Thursday, March 10, 2022, he visited the Dwarf Island, precisely, Cedi-Kope which is about 20 to 30 minutes drive in a speed boat across the River Afram. He was welcomed by the members of the church and later joined them in a short service organised at the Cedi-Kope Central Assembly Auditorium which is presided by Deaconess Martha Vudugah. The Dwarf Island District has a total of 22 local assemblies.

He later joined officers and members in the Maame Krobo Zone, where he charged them to be the light of the world to help eradicate the canker of corruption. The Maame Krobo zone is diversified with Kokombas, Krachis, Dargartis, Ewes and Krobos.

Joining the Ekye Amanfrom District Mega Friday Prayers in the morning at the Ekye Central and English Auditorium, Apostle Nyamekye mentioned that we became God’s children the moment we accepted the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

“The moment you come to Christ, eschew all fetish activities, therefore, let us be living testimonies indicating the faithfulness of God,” he admonished.

At the Tease Zonal meeting, later in the evening, the Chairman of the church highlighted on the Vision 2023 document of The Church of Pentecost, and indicated that everyone has been selected to go and possess nations.

Earlier on Saturday, March 12, 2022, he joined the Nton-Aboma community to fellowship with the chiefs and members of the community. He then acknowledged the peaceful living nature of the community and chiefs towards ministers sent to shepherd the church there.

Nton-Aboma, according to Nana Akyeamfour Akuamoah Boateng II, Kontihene of Akroso, is a resettlement island of four (4) towns who originally lived by the Volta Lake in 1964, but had to be relocated there because of the Akosombo Dam construction.

Later in the evening, he climaxed the zonal meetings with the Donkorkrom zone. He explained the 2022 theme of the church and prayed with the church.

The Afram Plains Area of the church is headed by Apostle Victor Asamoah and wife, Mrs. Rebecca Asamoah. As at December, 2021, it had an overall membership of 32,416, and 21 districts with 230 local assemblies. It is considered an internal missions area in the church.
