The La Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Dieudonne Komla Nuekpe, has expressed the need for churches, especially leaders to get themselves educated, trained, and be abreast with the use of the internet.
According to him, in the current dispensation where the internet has become part and parcel of human daily lives, one cannot but embrace digitalisation in the church system to keep it vibrant.
Apostle Dr. Dieudonne Nuekpe said this in an interview with Pentecost News during the recently held La Area Lay Leaders School.
The four-day leadership training took place from October 4–7, 2022, at six zonal centres, namely La, Accra Newtown, Mamobi, Alajo, Merry Villas, and Labone.
Participants were taken through topics including The Church as an Equipping Centre, Mobilising the Squad, Digitalisation Concept of The Church of Pentecost, and Ministering to Teens.
The Area Head visited the various centres. Speaking at the Alajo zone, he commended the pastors, facilitators, and participants for availing themselves of a such great task. He urged participants to take the studies seriously and apply them in their various districts and local assemblies.
Apostle Dr. Dieudonne Komla Nuekpe noted that the selected topics for 2022 Lay Leadership School were timely and on point.
“All the topics are worthwhile and within the Vision 2023, except that the lessons should have been treated earlier especially the digitalisation concept,” h said.
He urged leaders who could not participate in the exercise to avail themselves in subsequent ones, as this will help build the body of Christ.
