The International Missions Director (IMD) of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe, paid a three-day working visit to the Church in the Netherlands from Friday, December 10 to Sunday, December 12, 2021.
The IMD, who was accompanied by Apostle Daniel Ato Eduah (the National Head of Germany) and Mrs. Deborah Agyemang Bekoe (Wife of the IMD), was warmly received on arrival by the leadership of the Church led by Pastor John Otchere (the Acting National Head).
Apostle Agyemang Bekoe officially began his visit with a meeting with ministers and wives of the Church, where he encouraged them to have the mind of Christ in order to flourish in ministry.
The couple also fellowshipped with members of the three Amsterdam Intra-City districts at a joint “Christmas Convention” service. He exhorted the congregants on the topic: “There Should Be a Performance” based on Luke 2:10. In his sermon, he stressed that every gathering of God’s people should not be just about listening to sermons, praying, and dancing, but an opportunity to experience God’s dynamic and supernatural performance in the lives of the people.
On the second day of his visit, the IMD held separate meetings with the National Executive and Finance Board committees as well as the National Presbytery. He commended them for the good work and encouraged them to seek a higher level of anointing through dedication to God’s word, praying, fasting and a consecrated life. In this way, the members would experience the manifest-presence of God in every service, he further noted.
Apostle Agyemang Bekoe joined members of the Pentecost International Worship Centre, Amsterdam (PIWC-Amsterdam) on the third day of his visit to climax this year’s Christmas Conventions.
Delivering a message titled “God’s Love” with John 3:16 as a Bible reference, the IMD said that God is bent on reconciling the world to Himself to a great extent that He readily gave up His only Son, Jesus, for its sake. He further stated that this act in itself demonstrates God’s wonderful love for the world; for this reason, every Christian must be equally interested in “possessing the nations” for the Lord.
The IMD and his wife have since returned to Ghana following a successful duty trip. To God be the Glory.
