The National Coordinator for the Ministry to Persons with Disabilities (MPWDs) of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Alexander Nyame, is on a four-day working visit to the Sawla Area of the Church.
The purpose of the visit, among others, is to sensitise and educate ministers, officers and members on the need to intentionally minister (reach out) to persons with disabilities (PWDs) in the Area.
Pastor Nyame, as part of his duty trip, met with ministers, officers and members in the Tingar Zone of the Sawla Area, yesterday.
Addressing the gathering, Pastor Nyame said Christ must be projected to all people of the world, including persons with disabilities, who, statistically, form the third majority of the world’s population.
“In Ghana alone, about five million people live with some form of disability, that is about 12% of the country’s population,” he said.
He said God is bringing PWDs into His saving knowledge through the introduction of the MPWDs, which was birthed in 2019 under the Church’s five-year strategic vision, dubbed “Vision 2023: Possessing the Nations.”
He advised Church leaders to do everything within the power to remove the obstacles that impede the effective assimilation of PWDs in the Church so that they could also come to Christ.
The MPWDs Coordinator was accompanied by Pastor Prince Kwasi Mensah (Sawla Area MPWDs Coordinator and Gbongbouduori District Minister), and Pastor Kwaku Amponsah (Sawla Area Evangelism Ministry Leader and Bole Customs District Minister), among others.
Also present at the event were; Overseer Kennedy Offe (Zonal Chairman and Maluwe District Minister), Probationary Overseers Philip Agbeko (Tinga District Minister), Jeremiah Atta Dogbe (Banda Nkwanta District Minister), Seth Frimpong (Jama District Minister) and their wives.
In all, 96 district and local MPWDs coordinators and leaders attended the programme.
