The Kwadaso Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised a day’s conference for Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC) and all English assemblies in the Area.
The programme was held under the theme: “Equipping The Church As An Army To Possess The Nations.”
Participants to the conference were drawn from PIWC Kwadaso and English assemblies from all 17 districts in the Area.
In his opening address, the Area Head, Apostle John Budu Kobina Tawiah, mentioned that the English assemblies exist to create space for people who have challenges in communicating in the local dialects.
According to him, most of the PIWCs and Worship Centres in the church started as English assemblies and have now grown to become mega churches.
He acknowledged the role played by many of the church’s leaders, especially Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah in making this vision a reality.
Apostle Tawiah acknowledged the indispensable role the English assemblies play in the growth of The Church of Pentecost, saying, “You have become the economic powerhouse of the church.”
He added that the Worship Centres and English assemblies are seen as the hub of human resource in the church, which the church would want to harness to strengthen its leadership structure.
Because of the immense role the English assemblies and the PIWCs play, he admonished the members to take good care of themselves as far as their spiritual development is concerned.
Zeroing in on Vision 2023, Apostle Tawiah mentioned that it has created many avenues for ministry work which the English assemblies should avail themselves for. He particularly mentioned Schools Outreach Ministry, Chaplaincy, MPWDs, Counselling, among others. He also urged them to help in the mobilisation of members into squads so that no one stays idle.
Other Speakers were Pastor Kofi Antwi Boasiako (District Minister for Santasi), and Pastor Samuel Asiamah (Resident Minister of PIWC Kwadaso). They spoke on the English Assembly Concept and Excellence in English Assemblies respectively.
