Dawhenya District Launches Chieftaincy Ministry

In a significant stride toward deepening spiritual guidance and community leadership, the Dawhenya District of The Church of Pentecost has officially launched its Chieftaincy Ministry to bridge the gap between the Chieftaincy institution and the Church.

The District Minister, Pastor Bright Amankwah, launched the Ministry on Saturday, December 23, 2023, and emphasized the significance of the Chieftaincy Ministry and its pivotal role in connecting cultural heritage with contemporary spiritual guidance.

He also aimed to correct the misconception that Jesus is unconcerned about chieftaincy issues, often deemed paganistic, stressing that Jesus dwells in places of authority, the root of development in the land.

The gathering was graced with the presence of some chiefs and associates, including Nene Matthew Baah III (Stool Father, Odumase); Otseame Philip Baah (Odumase); Nene Martey Kwaku Arden II (Chief of Osorshie); Nene Tetteh Kodie Arden IV (chief of Dawhenya), and Madam Regina Morkor Tawiah Arden.

Nene Tetteh Kodie Arden IV, responding on behalf of the chiefs, appreciated the church for recognizing the importance of chieftaincy, believing that gradually the perception that “all chiefs are of the world and are not godly” will change. This, he noted, has led to many church members not showing interest in chieftaincy roles.

He expressed the belief that through this initiative, there will come a time when a member of the Church will be enstooled Chief of Dawhenya. He also encouraged the church to diligently pursue this ministry and continue praying for the chiefs and people of the land, pledging the support of the palace to the church.

The District Pastor appreciated the chiefs for gracing the occasion and pleaded that a Palace Assembly could be started with their permission so that the church could fellowship with the royals. He also pledged the church’s readiness to provide support, both spiritually and physically, towards the development of Dawhenya land.

In an era marked by rapid societal changes and evolving spiritual dynamics, the establishment of the Chieftaincy Ministry underscores The Church of Pentecost’s commitment to adaptability, inclusivity, and spiritual enrichment. It represents a profound step toward embracing diversity while upholding core traditional values, reinforcing the church’s position as a beacon of faith, unity, and guidance for its members.

The launch concluded with a collective prayer for the success and prosperity of the Chiefs and people of Dawhenya, as well as the Chieftaincy Ministry.
