COP Spends Over GH¢1.2Milion On Para-Church Organisations
The Church of Pentecost contributed a total amount of GH¢1,217,600.00 to support some Para-church organisations and Fellowships in Ghana and beyond in 2018.
The Chairman of the Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, disclosed this in the State of the Church Address (SOCA) he delivered on Wednesday, May 7, 2019, at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, during the 16th Extraordinary Council Meetings.
Apostle Nyamekye said that the Church continued to play a very significant and important role last year within the Ghanaian Christian fraternity.
He stated that the Church made significant contributions to the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Ghana Institute of Linguistics, Literacy and Bible Translation (GILLBT) and the Ghana Evangelism Committee (GEC).
The Chairman further disclosed that many other para-church, State and other non-governmental organisations (NGOs) also received appreciable financial and logistical support from the Church. These, he said, included the Bible Society of Ghana, the Scripture Union (SU) and Child Evangelism Fellowship.
Other organisations included Salt and Light Ministry, African Forum on Religion and Government, Theovision International, Gideon’s International, African Enterprise, Lausanne Movement, Pentecostal World Fellowship and Bible League.
The rest were Mental Care Home, Ghana Heart Foundation, Widows and Orphans, Countryside Children’s Welfare Home in Bawjiase, Physically Challenged Action Foundation at Offinso, Royal Sparrows Ministry Band, La Dadekotopon Municipal Educational Directorate, Drug and Alcohol-Free Awareness and Rehabilitation Centre, Sickle Cell Advocates Ghana, Ghana Trust Fund and Reach the People Ministries.
“Most of these organisations are involved not only in preaching the gospel, but also bringing relief to the poor and marginalised in the society,” he said, adding, “Together with these faith-based organisations and NGOs, our agenda of possessing the nations is feasible. We are grateful to God for putting us in the position to be of assistance to the needy in the society.”
