The 5th Bezalel Conference organised by Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM) at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, came to a close today with a clarion call on all participants to be diligent in service and to go the extra mile.
Addressing the enthusiastic gathering of over 2000 Christian men at the event, the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Nyamekye, in his sermon titled: “The Making of Fathers – Living for Others, ” emphasised that those who leave an indelible mark on future generations are those selflessly dedicate themselves to the well-being of others.
Quoting Matthew 5:29, Apostle Nyamekye urged the participants to be willing to make great sacrifices by going the extra mile for the sake of others.
The Chairman, citing influential historical figures like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa, underscored the power of living for others.
According to him, despite facing adversities and sacrificing their lives to serve others, these individuals became timeless heroes, inspiring people across generations.
Apostle Nyamekye challenged the participants to examine their lives and consider how they would like to be fondly remembered and celebrated as fathers, husbands, pastors, teachers, and leaders even after they are no more.
He also encouraged them to be channels (vessels) through which God’s grace would flow and bring positive change to their communities.
The Chairman shared stories of three exemplary individuals who epitomised selfless service: Mordecai, who worked tirelessly for the welfare of his people; Nehemiah, who declined personal privileges to avoid burdening others; and Job, known for his support of the poor, fatherless, and destitute., to buttress his assertion.
These men, he further noted, were characterised by their humility, God-fearing nature, compassion for the vulnerable, encouragement, pursuit of peace, diligence, nobility, and influence within their communities.
He, therefore, urged Christian men to emulate their exemplary traits so as to leave behind a godly and positive legacy for future generations.
The Bezalel Conference is a bi-annual event of the Pentecost Men’s Ministry aimed at empowering Christian men for maximum impact in society.
This year’s event, which coincided with the 25th anniversary of the ministry, took place from May 24 to 26, 2023 and was under the theme: “Repositioning Men for Maximum Impact: Building upon the Legacy of the Fathers.
To the glory of God, the 2023 Bezalel Conference concluded on a high note, leaving attendees inspired and equipped to embrace the call for selfless service and make a meaningful impact in their spheres of influence.
