The Kentinkrono District in the Bompata Area of The Church of Pentecost held a retirement service in honour of five officers of the Church who dedicated several years in service to God and the church.
The glorious service, chaired by Apostle Victor Kwasi Asamoah (Bompata Area Head), took place at the Rev. Osgood Ennin Memorial Temple (ROEMT), Kentikrono-Nsenie, on Sunday, November 12, 2023.
The retirees, consisting of three Elders and two Deaconesses, were recognised for decades of meritorious service to The Church of Pentecost. Elder Seth Owusu-Nimako served for 17 years, Elder Edwin Osei Sekyere for 26 years, and Elder Kwabena Kwakye for an impressive 38 years. Additionally, Deaconess Elizabeth Botah served faithfully for 43 years, and Deaconess Gifty Oppong devoted 38 years to the Church.
The event saw the attendance of distinguished personalities, including Apostle Norman Appiah Danquah (Walewale Area Head), Pastor Ernest Kwabena Addo (Kentinkrono District Minister), Pastor Andrews A. Asamoah (Ayigya District Minister), and Pastor Emmanuel Twumasi (Asafo District Minister & Bompata Area Evangelism Leader).
Apostle Victor Asamoah delivered a profound message during the service on the topic “Looking for Christ’s Interest,” based on Philippians 2:20-22. He emphasised the great responsibility that comes with being an officer of the church and highlighted the rewards that await those who faithfully serve.
Encouraging the congregation to prioritise the things of the Lord, Apostle Asamoah cautioned against entrusting all resources, time, love, and mind solely into worldly pursuits. He reiterated the eternal value of dedicating all resources to the work of God.
Other individuals who also graced the occasion were Pastor Bright Asare (Tafo Ahenbronom District), Pastor William Quainoo (Ekwe District Minister, Axim Area), Pastor Silas Boateng (Rtd), Elder Francis Adusei (Bompata Area Deacon), Elder Nana Ohene Fredua Agyemang, Elder Joseph Hagan, and Mrs. Rita Adainoo, among others.
