Apostle Sylvester Arhin, the Tamale Area Head and Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, charged officers of the Church to be representatives of Christ and His Church wherever they go.
He made this statement at an ordination service held on Friday, August 11, 2023, at the Tishegu Central Assembly of the Church, during which 67 new officers were ordained. The event also marked the culmination of the 2023 Tamale Zone Lay Leadership School.
Addressing the officers in attendance, Apostle Sylvester Arhin emphasized the profound significance of the officers’ role as representatives of Christ and His Church both within the church walls and in society.
He exhorted them to manifest this representation in their everyday lives, underscoring the importance of sincerity not only in personal and social interactions but also in their spiritual calling.
Apostle Arhin advised church officers to live with integrity, defend the Faith, and continue to seek knowledge and immerse themselves in God’s word.
He also urged them to assume the role of spiritual leaders within the Local Church, fostering unity and coherence among members to ensure the smooth pursuit of Christ’s mission through the Church for maximum impact in the world.
Also present were Pastor Bernard Aziz Mohammed Abogorago (Area Secretary), the pastorate of the Tamale Zone, Area Executive Committee members, officers, and members of the Church.
