This is a further division of the district and forms the base of the five-tier administrative structure of the Church. The local congregation is headed by a Presiding Elder who acts for the district pastor and sees to the implementation of decisions taken by the District Pastor, with the aid of all the Elders, Deacons, Deaconesses, Committees and Ministry leaders in the congregation.

This well-coordinated chain of command ensures both vertical and horizontal flow of information in the Church, thereby making implementation of policies and feedback very vital ingredients for effective administration.


The Local Presbytery is the highest decision-making body in any Local Assembly and thus decides on all matters concerning the Local Assembly.

It consists of the Minister, his wife, Presiding Elder, Elders, Deacons and Deaconesses of the Local Assembly. They meet at least once in every month.

The Church of Pentecost currently has 69 administrative areas in Ghana alone and 107 worldwide in 105 nations including Ghana.
