The Kasoa Area of The Church of Pentecost has launched the Young Evangelist initiative to boost its evangelism drive and reach out to all people with the gospel message of Jesus Christ.
The Young Evangelist, the brainchild of the Area Head, Apostle James Kwabena Asare, seeks to equip young men and women in the evangelism drive of the Church.
Speaking at the launch of the program, Apostle Asare reiterated that the Church exist to evangelise and, therefore, the need to equip the Church with the skills and tools for effective evangelism.
He also said that the Young Evangelist initiative would help the Church prepare the young ones to take their place in the body of Christ in a responsible way.
Reading from Mark 16:15-20, Apostle James Asare indicated that evangelism is the core mandate of the Church and, therefore, it is a command from God to go and preach the word to all the world.
He said the command was to go everywhere, including barbering salons, markets, hospitals, schools, vehicles, beaches, funerals, professional evangelism, and Ghettos, among many others.
He then charged the first group of “young evangelists” to go out and preach the gospel of Christ and win many souls for Christ.
The Kasoa Area Head revealed that the district and the individuals who record the highest souls won and baptised would be rewarded by the area.
One-Soul-One T-Shirt project, another initiative introduced by the area to whip up the interest in evangelism among members, was also launched at the event.
Pastor Daniel Kobina Bentum, the Area Evangelism Ministry Leader, in an interview with PENTECOST NEWS, said, “to miss the great commission is a great omission” and, therefore, called on the youth to avail themselves to be trained as young evangelists to saturate Kasoa and its environs with the good news of Christ.
The launch was attended by the area pastorate and their spouses, the Area Evangelism Ministry Committee members, and over 400 young people, now Young Evangelists, drawn from all the districts in the area.
