The National Coordinator for the Home and Urban Missions (HUM), Apostle Emmanuel Agyei Kwafo, has urged ministers and church leaders to adopt organised efforts to fully accept and integrate souls won through HUM activities.
According to him, “an understanding of the HUM concept as a ministry and not merely an intervention under the Possessing the Nations Agenda from the local assembly to all levels of the church will inure to the benefit of the church’s soul-winning drive”.
Apostle Kwafo explained that with over 37,000 souls won and more than 600 churches opened through HUM activities, the church cannot ignore putting strategies in place to make the converts/ members feel at home and assimilate them into the church’s life.
“As we move into Vision 2028, it is my prayer and desire that HUM will make inroads into the local assemblies with a new awakening of understanding, penetration and participation. Some assemblies are, in fact, challenged that there is no activity or leadership of HUM to push forth the agenda”, he stated.
Speaking in an interview on the sidelines of the GMWC’24 currently ongoing at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa-Fetteh, the HUM Coordinator, indicated that Vision 2028 presents an opportunity for the church to sustain the gains made over the past five years under the “Possessing the Nations” agenda.
“As we unleash the church to possess the nations, it is important that the church through the HUM ‘ministry’ provide viable economic, financial and social support for our converts, and I am glad that leadership has put in place three major infrastructural projects that will be a lasting legacy in improving the quality of life of the members and thereby making their souls count,” Apostle Kwafo stated.
In the next five years, the HUM through the church will lead the establishment a school for the Fulani community in Yagayaba in the Walewale Area, a cattle ranch on a 50-acre land at Nakabi in the Sawla Area and a 500-bed capacity rehabilitation centre in the Greater Accra Region. These interventions constitute major interventions for members won from the Urban Poor and Marginalised, Unreached Peoples Group and Northerners in the South.
Apostle Kwafo expressed his delight with the great discipleship work being done by some assemblies and districts, which has resulted in a significant number of new converts being called to leadership positions in the church.
“To the glory of God, the efforts of HUM have produced one minister, two elders, two deacons and one deaconess,” he said.
