The Goaso Area of The Church of Pentecost has launched the Pentecost Professional Guilds in the Area. The inauguration of the Professional Guilds which took place on Wednesday, December 30, 2020, was part of the church’s Vision 2023 overarching theme, “Possessing the Nations: Equipping the Church to Transform Every Sphere of Society with Values and Principles of the Kingdom of God.”
Addressing the participants on the topic, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it well,” Pastor Isaac Anane Yeboah of Sankore District urged them to demonstrate Christlike character in their workplaces without giving chance to any evil deeds from the kingdom of darkness.
Reading from Ecclesiastes 9:10 and 2 Thessalonians 3:6-12, Pastor Yeboah admonished the participants to work with all their might; not to pretend to be working, do proper planning, acquire knowledge and apply wisdom in order to possess their fields of work.
According to him, the values and principles of the Kingdom of God enjoin Christians to be the light and salt of the world, imbued godly attributes such as integrity, love, patience, humility, hard work, and faithfulness. “We cannot transform the nations around us if we are not prepared to change the norms and face challenges,” he said, adding, “Transformation is targeting all weaknesses in the structures of the various institutions.”
The Area Head, Apostle William Kojo Edzorhoho, who chaired the programme, asked professionals in the church to be light and salt in their respective professions, saying, “Christians, particularly The Church of Pentecost members should not continue to disappoint God at their workplaces.”
He implored the workers including ministers of the gospel to showcase godly attributes in their areas of specialization. He reminded the participants of the diverse challenges they are going to encounter in their effort to demonstrate Christlike attitudes in their workplaces. “Can we not get believers who can stand for Christ and mitigate the canker in our society?” he questioned.
The various guilds launched by the Area Head include Dressmakers, Drivers, Artisans, Health Workers, Education, Finance, Banking, Judiciary and Media.
