The Madina Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Martin Seth Appiah, has dedicated a set of public address systems valued at GHS 245,350.00 to support its evangelistic outreaches.
The items include four pairs of line arrays (speakers), dual sub-speakers (2 pairs), amplifiers for arrays, bass speakers, monitors (2 each), a 32″ digital mixer and an audio link.
The rest are XLR plugs (40 pieces), speak on (30 pieces), signal cable and amplifier rack, among others.
The equipment, which provides quality sound for the Area’s monthly prayer meetings, conventions, crusades and other outdoor events, is also expected to reduce the high cost of rentals.
“We spend a lot of money renting PA systems for our monthly prayer meetings, time with the Holy Ghost all night, and other activities,” Apostle M. S. Appiah disclosed, adding, “We believe as stewards of God’s money, acquiring our equipment will give us value for money and cut off the recurrent expenditure we have had to incur at every instance.”
He expressed his gratitude to the Area Executive Committee members and the presbytery for buying into the vision to acquire the equipment, which is a one-time cost and will serve the Area for a very long time.
In a related development, the Area has also inaugurated a 15-member Area Pentecost Endowment Fund (PENTEF) Committee to oversee the establishment of the Area’s skill training programme for the youth, the unemployed and the vulnerable in the Madina area and beyond.
The members of the endowment fund are Elder James Dwamena Yamoah (Chairman), Deaconess Daisy Bosompem, Esq (Secretary), Madam Akosua Gyamfua, Deaconess Dr Mavis Bamudez and Deaconess Dr Augustina Naami.
Others are Elder Daniel Afari Boateng, Deaconess Grace Nkansah, Deaconess Philomina Agyei, Elder Emmanuel Badu, Elder Benjamin Akuffo, and Deaconess Beatrice Opoku.
The rest are Elder Kwabena Agyemang, Pastor Patrick Anto (Area Secretary) and Elder Barnabas Miah (Area Deacon).
PENTEF Madina Area is expected to be launched in February 2024.
