The Home and Urban Missions (HUM) of The Church of Pentecost, a ministry which was birthed out of Vision 2023, is witnessing widespread growth since its inception in 2018.
In line with this, Pastor Gabriel Owusu Akyaw, formerly of Bulenga District in the Wa Area, together with his family, has been welcomed as the new Eastern Regional HUM Coordinator, to steer the affairs of the ministry in the region.
The welcome service was held on Friday, November 20, 2020, at the Pentecost International Worship Centre, Koforidua (PIWC-Koforidua). It was officiated by the Chairman of the Eastern Regional Coordinating Committee (RCC), Apostle Samuel Osei Asante, who also doubles as the Koforidua Area Head and Executive Council Member of the church. He was assisted by the Koforidua Effiduase Area Head, Apostle Daniel Yeboah Nsaful.
Speaking on the topic, “Reaching the World with the Message of Christ,” based on Matthew 28:18-19, Apostle Daniel Nsaful, stated: “Christ has given us a charge to go out to all nations and reach the world with the gospel message of Jesus Christ.”
He added: “The early believers were given the mandate to go out to the ends of the world and possess the nations for Christ, this charge now falls on us to reach our world with the gospel.”
He, therefore, urged the church to reignite every fading zeal and rekindle their lost passion so that they can reach the world with the gospel, as the early believers did, in response to the command of Christ.
“This is our core mandate, to save others from hell and destruction and bring them to the saving grace of Jesus Christ,” he stressed.
In attendance were Mrs. Elizabeth Osei Asante (wife of Koforidua Area Head), the Pastorate and their wives for both Koforidua and Effiduase Areas, as well as HUM Coordinators for Asamankese, Suhum, Akim Oda, Effiduase, Nkawkaw, Afram Plains, and Koforidua Areas.
Also present were members of the Restoration Assembly from Old Tafo Akim District in the Effiduase Area who were heavily represented to welcome their pastor.
