Empowered21 Africa Charges Christian Youth To Carry The Gospel To The Unreached
The Empowered21 Conference which took place recently in Johannesburg, South Africa, ended with a call on Christian youth to win souls for Christ.
Speaking at the closing ceremony which was attended by thousands of young people all over South Africa, the President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) and CO-Chair of Empowered21 Africa Congress, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah, called on young people to make room in their lives to take the gospel to the unreached souls of the world.
Apostle Opoku Onyinah, who is also the outgoing Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, said the 2033 Agenda for Empowered21 to reach the world’s people with the gospel requires the participation of all young Christians around the world, including Africa.
On his part, the Co-Chair of Empowered21 Global Congress, Dr. Billy Wilson, urged the youth to go to the world and evangelise. Best days are ahead of us, he said, as he commissioned the young people in prayers to go to the world and preach the gospel.
