National Chieftaincy Ministry Organises Seminar For Royals In Techiman Area

Two hundred and seventy-three chiefs, queen mothers, and royals in the Techiman Area of The Church of Pentecost participated in the maiden Chieftaincy Seminar organised by the National Chieftaincy Ministry of the Church.

The programme took place on Tuesday, January 9, 2024, at Dwomor Central Assembly church auditorium.

The event, held under the auspices of the Area Head, Apostle Isaac Nii Kotei Djani, aimed at bridging the gap between the Chieftaincy institution and the Church.

Addressing the gathering during the event, Apostle Isaac Nii Kotei Djani, who doubles as an Executive Council Member, said, in Vision 2023, the Executive Council saw the need to bring all the chiefs and the royals together since they also have a role to play in the transformation agenda.

The seminar was handled by the National Chieftaincy Ministry Coordinator, Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, who is also an Executive Council Member and the Director of the Men’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost.

Expounding on the theme “A People of God Unleashed for Maximum Impact in the Palace” at the event, Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh noted that the ministry has a mission to reach out to royals so they can be converted followers of Christ to transform their world and also equip Christian royals with godly virtues, Kingdom values, and principles to influence their communities.

He further added that the ministry seeks to raise chiefs and royals like King Hezekiah and David to transform their world.

He also said the palace and the Church must come together to solve the challenges of the communities using 2 Chronicles 32:20-21 as scripture reference.

He charged the ministers in the Area to intentionally support the chiefs, queen mothers, and royals with prayers and encouragement so that they can overcome their challenges and be victorious as Christian Chiefs and royals.

Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh touched on the legal aspects of Chieftaincy in Ghana with reference to Act 270 of the 1992 Constitution and Chieftaincy Act 759 (2008), which establishes and regulates the institution and the conduct of chiefs.

He stressed that, according to the constitutional provisions, Chiefs must be validly nominated, elected or selected, and enstooled.

Again, Chiefs are not to be convicted of treason, fraud, take part in active (partisan) politics, and that anyone who desires to do so must abdicate their throne.

He, however, clarified that the laws of the country allow for a chief to be appointed to any public office for which he qualifies.

Elder Nana Pimampim Yaw Kagbrese V, the Paramount Chief of Yeji Traditional Area, who is also a member of the National Chieftaincy Ministry Committee and President of the Bono East Regional House of Chiefs, encouraged the royals and traditional leaders to rely on God since the source of their royalty is from Him and not from any deity.

He also said ministers of the Church should always encourage members to take up chieftaincy roles when they consult them for advice.

Pastor Richmond Mensah, Techiman Area Chieftaincy Ministry Coordinator, led all the ministers present to pray for the chiefs and royals for divine protection and for their hearts to be opened to the gospel.

On behalf of the participants, the Techiman Area Head expressed deep appreciation to the Chairman of the church for his initiative towards the Chieftaincy Institution.

He also expressed his heartfelt gratitude to Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, Elder Nana Pimampim Yaw Kagbrese V, and the National Chieftaincy Ministry for organizing this seminar for the Area.

In attendance were Apostle Peter Agyei (Chairman Local Council of Churches, Techiman), District Chieftaincy Coordinators, some prominent chiefs and royals from the various traditional areas in the Techiman Area, the Techiman Area pastorate, Mrs. Martha Denteh (Wife of the National Coordinator), and Elder Kakyire Kwaku Asante (a co-opted Executive Committee Member, of the Chieftaincy Ministry).
