Downtown-Ofaakor Area Launches COPCEF

The Downtown-Ofaakor Area of The Church of Pentecost has launched The Church of Pentecost Chairman’s Educational Fund (COPCEF) to raise money to support needy but brilliant students at Pentecost University (PU).

The event, which took place at the Mount Olives Assembly Auditorium on Sunday, November 19, 2023, was attended by the Downtown-Ofaakor Area Head, Apostle William Kojo Edzorhoho, the Vice Chancellor of the Pentecost University, Apostle Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua, Elder Ebenezer Achempong (Deputy PEMEM Director), officials from the Pentecost University, among others.

In a sermon shared by Pastor Andrews Owusu on the topic, “God’s great blessings was upon them all” (Acts 4:32-37), he mentioned that the early Church was able to share their possessions and properties as a result of the unity brought by the Holy Spirit working in and through their lives.

He emphasised that they voluntarily shared everything they had among those with needs, irrespective of their family or social class. 

“The early Church didn’t consider what they had as their own so that they could give and share, eliminating poverty among themselves,” he stressed. 

Pastor Owusu challenged the gathering to support students with financial difficulties to complete their studies at the university, saying, “How would you feel when a brilliant but needy student has no means to survive their education? How best can you support this worthy cause from today?” 

Pastor Andrews Owusu concluded by encouraging all and sundry to realise that everything they have comes from God, and they are only stewards.

Launching the fund, Apostle Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua appreciated the massive attendance by the members. He brought to the fore the vision of COPCEF and, ultimately, the beautiful future ahead of the many members who will be beneficiaries of the fund. 

The Area and district coordinators were also outdoored and encouraged to keep running with the vision. The Area raised a substantial amount of money to support the fund.

In his closing remarks, the Area Head, Apostle William Kojo Edzorhoho, stressed the need for the members to pull their little resources together to support the fund.
