Ho Area Ordains 51 New Officers

A total of fifty-one (51) persons have been ordained as officers of The Church of Pentecost in the Ho Area.

The ordination services were held during the monthly officers’ prayers at Ho and Anum Zones on Tuesday, 27th, and Wednesday, 28th September 2022 at PIWC Ho and Anum Asikuma church auditoriums, respectively. The officers ordained consisted of 16 Elders, 12 Deaconesses and 23 Deacons. 

Speaking on the topic, “Our Multi-Dimensional Relationship With God” (Matthew 20:28), Apostle Dr. Dela Quampah stated that Christians relate to God on so many levels such as slaves to God, servants of God, friends of God, brothers of Christ, children of God, co-workers with Christ, the bride of Christ, and co-heirs with Christ.

Commenting on Christians as slaves of God, the Area Head stated that all those who are in Christ are slaves to righteousness since they have been purchased with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. He encouraged Christians to thus live in righteousness and shun all forms of evil.

He contrasted the life of a slave with being a slave to God, saying that, although physical slaves feel “imprisoned,” being a slave in Christ gives you freedom. According to him, this freedom can be found when we are in the right relationship with God – a relationship guided by righteousness.

He charged leaders in the church to work with all their hearts to promote the Kingdom business, not as though they were working for or serving their presiding elders or district ministers but as to working for and serving God, for it is God’s work and it is God who rewards.

He charged the ordained officers to use their resources to support the Kingdom business. He also encouraged them not to look to men in their work but to God, who can strengthen them through difficult terrains in the discharge of their duties.

In attendance at the services were the wife of the Area Head, Mrs Comfort Quampah, the Area Pastorate, and officers in the Area.
