The newly-constructed mission house for the Maluwe District of The Church of Pentecost has been dedicated to the glory of God.
The four-bedroom manse, largely funded by the Church’s Headquarters, was dedicated by Apostle David Amankwaa, the Sawla Area Head, on Wednesday, May 31, 2023.
The Maluwe District was carved out of the Tingar District after receiving approval for its creation at the 15th Extraordinary Council Meeting of the church. Consequently, the District was officially inaugurated on Sunday, November 21, 2020, with Overseer Kennedy Offe stationed as its first minister.
Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye, the then Sawla Area Head, cut sod for the commencement of the mission house project on Wednesday, March 16, 2020.
After the building reached a habitable stage, the foundation stone was laid on Friday, September 15, 2020, to house the minister and his family.
During the dedication service, Apostle David Amankwaa delivered a sermon on the topic “The Spiritual Inheritance for the Saints,” referring to Ephesians 1:17-18 as his scriptural reference.
He noted that Apostle Paul’s prayer for the Saints in Ephesus had four results, including spiritual inheritance.
Apostle Amankwaa emphasised that some of the spiritual benefits of Christianity include the gospel of salvation, the Holy Spirit and His gifts, the word of God, and prayer, among others.
He explained that as Christians, their primary inheritance is Jesus Christ, and when they have Jesus, they have everything.
He further highlighted that the benefits Christians enjoy are not only spiritual but also physical.
Apostle Amankwaa noted that church buildings and mission houses are physical inheritances believers receive from God, and they must strive to protect and preserve them from decay and destruction.
He urged Christians not to neglect the physical inheritance, such as the mission house, while focusing solely on preserving the spiritual inheritance.
He also charged ministers to take proper care of their mission houses through effective maintenance and care to ensure they serve many pastors.
During the dedication of the building, Apostle Amankwaa expressed profound gratitude to the Chairman and the Executive Council for accepting the creation of the Maluwe District and providing the funds to complete the mission house on time.
He also thanked Pastor George Kyeremateng, the former Tingar District Minister, and his wife for their hard work in ensuring the successful completion of the mission house.
The dedication service was attended by the Sawla Area pastorate and their wives, presbyters, and members of the Maluwe District.
