The leadership of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship, Ghana (FGBMF-Ghana) paid a visit to The Church of Pentecost (CoP) General Headquarters in Accra today to congratulate the Chairman of the Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, on his election as president of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC).
The group’s president, Mr. Baba Mahama, who led the delegation to meet the Chairman, expressed delight at the appointment, saying: “Leaders who model servant-leadership is what the country needs. Having observed you from afar and up close, as well as listening to your thoughts on leadership, I believe that you are the right person the country needs at this moment.”
He, therefore, extended the FGBMFI-Ghana’s felicitation to Apostle Nyamekye and pledged their support to him to deliver on his mandate.
Mr. Mahama also took the opportunity to invite the GPCC President to the fellowship’s 2023 World Convention to be held in Ghana from July 13 to 15, 2023, at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC). The event, which is the 70th convention of FGBMFI, would draw about 1500 participants across the globe, according to Mr. Mahama.
“I am also happy to announce to you that during the Directors’ Meeting held in Malaysia a Ghanaian, in the person of Francis Owusu, was elected as the global president of the FGBMFI,” he said.
In response, Apostle Nyamekye expressed delight at the team’s visit which he described as a clear indication of the FGBMFI’s willingness to work together with the GPCC to achieve their shared goals and objectives.
He also hinted that his leadership would, among other objectives, focus on uniting the body of Christ and dealing with anything that creates divisions between Christian denominations and para-church organisations.
Apostle Nyamekye also commended the fellowship for the great work in reaching out to persons of high standing in society with the gospel message of Christ.
He also called for more collaboration between the fellowship and other church denominations to advance the cause of Christ.
The GPCC President also advised them to make deliberate efforts to reach out to the young people in order to keep the fellowship vibrant and relevant beyond this generation.
Mr. Mahama thanked Apostle Nyamekye for the warm reception accorded them and also presented some Christian literature to him.
Present at the meeting were Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi (General Secretary), Apostle Col. Benjamin Godson Kumi-Woode, Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh (PEMEM Director), Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin (Evangelism Ministry Director), Deaconess Philomina Mireku (Women’s Ministry Director), among others.
