The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye today, September 25, 2019, commissioned and dedicated the Nana K. Gyasi Bezalel Block Factory at a short ceremony at Kasoa in the Central Region.
The commissioning of the facility was held on the sidelines of the ongoing 4th Bezalel Conference of the Men’s Ministry (PEMEM) at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh.
The Block factory, which is worth over $53,000.00, was singlehandedly financed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Nana Kwadwo Gyasi Company Limited, Elder Dr. Nana Kwadwo Gyasi and donated to the Men’s Ministry to provide skills training and employment for male members of the church.
The facility possesses a 09MS Block and Interlock machine procured from Conmach Dist Tic. Limited in Istanbul that can produce up to 12,000 blocks daily.
Receiving the facility on behalf of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye expressed gratitude to God for His continuous blessings upon the church. He was also grateful to Elder Dr. Nana K. Gyasi for the generous gesture and assured him that the church would ensure that the facility serves its intended purpose.
The Chairman, in turn, handed it over to the Men’s Ministry who have been tasked to see to the day-to-day operations of the factory.
In a short remark, the Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP), Mr. John Kumah expressed delight at the commissioning of the Block factory saying that it falls in line with efforts of the government to create more employment for its teeming youth. He noted that the facility also shows that the church is interested in the holistic growth of its members.
As part of the ceremony, the Manager of the factory, Elder Sylvester Fosu, demonstrated to the audience how the Block and Interlocking machine works.
Present at the event were Apostle Ekow Badu Wood (Kasoa Area Head), Apostle Emmanuel Ankra Badu (PEMEM Director), Elder Dr. Ebenezer Asamoah Nyarko (Deputy PEMEM Director), Hon. Kojo Asemanyi (Member of Parliament for the Gomoa East Constituency) as well as the Kasoa Area pastorate and members of the Kasoa District.
