The Chaplaincy Ministry of The Church of Pentecost has held its maiden Lay-Chaplains Training programme for church leaders in the northern part of the country.
The training programme covered areas such as “Introduction to Chaplaincy,” “Ethics and Legal Issues in Counselling,” “Crisis Counselling,” “The Ministry of Visitation, Education and Sports Chaplaincy.”
The facilitators were Pastor Lt. Eric Antwi (BBWC), Pastor Flt. Lt. Cornelius Edem Lotsu (4 BN-Kumasi), and Elder Dr. Ken Aboah.
The participants were admonished that, as chaplains, most of their duties are related to counselling, hence, they should use the word of God as the anchor of every discission and counsel they give.
They were also advised to always be mindful of the fact that they are representatives of God wherever they find themselves.
The programme ended with a closing remark by the Lamashegu District Minister, Pastor BAM Abogorago, who doubles as the Tamale Area Secretary and a PEMEM National Executive Member.
