About 75 teenagers of The Church of Pentecost participated in a three-day camp meeting organised by the Kumasi Sector of the Home and Urban Missions (HUM).
The event, which yielded 14 souls and saw 44 participants receiving Holy Spirit Baptism, was held at the Anglican Retreat Centre from January 3 to 5, 2023. The programme was under the theme: “Repositioning the Local Church for Maximum Impact in the Nations,” and was attended by teenagers from the local assemblies opened through the ministry of HUM in the Kumasi Sector.
According to Pastor Thomas Ayamboya, the Kumasi Sector HUM Pastor, the meeting was organised to instill in the teenagers the unadulterated word of God, which has the propensity to build them up in Christ.
Speaking on the topic: “Repositioning the Future Leaders for Greater Impact in the Nations” (2 Timothy 1:5-6), Pastor Thomas Ayamboya emphasised that when a Christian repositions their perspective of life well at a tender age, they would be careful to uphold the values and principles of the kingdom of God, and become good and resoureful citizens.
He admonished the youth to rekindle the virtues imparted to them by their Christian parents and youth leaders in their local churches.
Mrs. Juliana Appiah Aidoo, wife of Apostle John Appiah Aidoo (Abuakwa Area Head), who gave a presentation on the topic: “The Rights and Responsibilities of Children at Home” at the event, warned the youth against abusing the privileges they receive at home. Instead, she advised them to be poised in carrying out their responsibilities so as to build them up and earn them the admiration of society in the future.
Mrs Appiah Aidoo also advised them not to leave the Church under any circumstance since that would be detrimental to them in the future.
“The Church of Pentecost is mindful of the plight of the Youth and will always stand by you to achieving life purpose should you continue to remain loyal to the church and exhibit the fear of God wherever you find yourselves,” she added.
Other life-building topics treated were The Youth and the Holy Spirit Encounter, “My Body, My Pride,” “My Future, My Responsibility,” and “The Impact of Music on the Youth,” among others.
