The newly-dedicated Central Assembly church auditorium in the Danmbai Lakeside District of The Church of Pentecost has been named after the late Apostle Kenneth Kwaku Confidence Gadzekpo, widely known as “KKC Gadzekpo.”
The gesture is meant to honour the memory of the late minister who tragically lost his life on Saturday, August 28, 2010, while on a ministerial assignment to Dambai.
The historic moment was witnessed by Church members during the dedication ceremony for the building on Friday, December 30, 2022.
The programme was officiated by the Nkwanta Area Head, Pastor Seth Dwamena Asante, with support from the area pastorate.
The building, which is now known as the Apostle KKC Gadzekpo Memorial Temple, was initiated in 2004 by the then Dambai District Minister, Pastor Frank Kobla Sinatra.
However, after Dambai Lakeside District was created in 2010, P/Overseer George Osei Asiedu (now Pastor), the first minister of the new district, took over the project and worked steadily on the building and saw to the completion of block works, roofing and plastering.
Subsequently, Pastor Gabriel Owusu, the immediate-past Dambai Lakeside District Minister, and his successor, Pastor John Nyarko Akyirem, continued the project until its successful completion.
Present at the dedication ceremony were representatives of the late minister’s family. The Church also presented a citation to the minister’s surviving wife, Madam Florence Adzo Akpene Gadzekpo, at the event.
The Gadzekpo family, in response, expressed their gratitude to God and the Church for the great honour done to them.
Also in attendance were Pastor Gordon Boadi (Area Estate Chairman and Sabon District Minister), Pastor Benson Gyasi (Area Secretary and Nkwanta District Minister), Pastor Michael Osei Frimpong (Dambai Junction District Minister), Pastor Evans Kyere Appah (Kecheibi District Minister), Elder Isaac Bediako (Area Deacon) and Deacon J. K. Ofori (Area Project Officer), among others.
