The Kintampo Area Youth Ministry of The Church of Pentecost has organised a Prayer Retreat and Seminar for youth leaders and workers in the Area.
The event, which took place on Saturday, August 29, 2020, at the Kintampo Newtown Central assembly, was to ensure spiritual rejuvenation, sensitize the participants on the vision of the ministry and to re-strategise in order to remain relevant in these challenging times. Publications
The Area Youth Leader, Overseer Samuel Addae, in a sermon on the topic, “Be Grounded to Ground Others” taken from Colossians 2: 6-7; Timothy 2:1-2, stressed the need for the youth workers to work together to help achieve the vision of the ministry.
To ensure this, he asked the leaders to first assess themselves, saying, “Before we can ground others we need to be first grounded in Christ.”
“Leaders must truly and genuinely accept Christ as Lord and Saviour, die to self, continue to live in Christ, actively involve themselves in discipleship, and be determined to live as Christ did,” he added.
The District Minister of Jema Nkwanta, Overseer Prince Augustine Ababio, took the leaders through how to use the digital space (Social Media) to ground the youth in Christ.
He admonished them to understand the times in which they find themselves just like the sons of Issachar and make use of technology to reach out to the world in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
