Maiden Conference For Proprietors Of Christian Private Schools Underway At PCC

About 200 school proprietors, managers and teachers, drawn from various private schools in Ghana are meeting at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, near Kasoa in the Central Region for the maiden Conference for Proprietors of Christian Private Schools.

The 3-day conference, organised by the Children’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost, in collaboration the church’s Schools Outreach Ministry (SOM), under the theme: “Unleashing the Christian School Leader to Raise Godly Children,” began on Sunday and will end on Wednesday, June 12, 2024.

Welcoming the participants to the conference during the opening ceremony on Monday, June 10, 2024, the Director of the Children’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost and former Vice Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Pastor Prof. William Otoo Ellis, commended the participants for taking part in the all-important conference.

He urged them to drink from the deep brook of experience in nurturing children as the church develops a framework for bringing godliness back to Ghanaian school premises.

“As a ministry responsible for children in The Church of Pentecost, we continue to seek partnerships with various stakeholders in child development to achieve our corporate vision of raising godly children,” he said.

He added: “As a church and a ministry, we believe that our schools and more especially Christian private schools have been called by God to raise godly children.”

The former KNUST Vice Chancellor noted that in today’s world within which children are being raised is gradually becoming increasingly challenging as far as godliness and morality is concerned.

According to him, homes and family systems which hitherto were the first point of call for raising morally upright children is also gradually disintegrating.

“Unfavourable economic conditions coupled with humanity’s quest to build a godless society, continue to exert pressure on families and parents’ ability to raise godly children,” he bemoaned, adding, “The educational system which served as one of the most effective pivots, providing support and augmentation to the family system in terms of raising godly and morally upright children is also increasingly being compromised.”
