National Chieftaincy Ministry Organises Seminar For Two Areas

The National Chieftaincy Ministry continues with its training and seminars for traditional rulers and ministers in The Church of Pentecost to fully prepare them for the work of the ministry in the palace. 

The National Coordinator, Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, who has been leading the seminars, was in the Obuasi Area on Tuesday, 5th March 2024, and moved to the Atebubu Area on Friday, 8th March 2024. 

Attendance in Obuasi included the Obuasi Area Head, Prophet David Kankam Beditor, ministers and their wives, 46 royals and members of the Chieftaincy Ministry Committees from various districts in the Area. 

In the Atebubu Area, the event was attended by the Area Head, Apostle Isaac Amatey Anim, ministers and their wives, Nana Pimampim Yaw Kagbrese V (President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs and Chairman of the National Chieftaincy Ministry Committee. Nana Afia Donyona II (Atebubuman Hemaa) and Nana Kwabena Kyere III (Adonten Hene and the Acting President of Atebubu Traditional Council) were also in attendance. A total of 215 royals were present in the Atebubu seminar.

In both seminars, the royals and traditional rulers expressed their happiness in the Lord in songs of praise and dancing.  

Apostle Anane Denteh, in his presentations in both Areas, spoke on the theme, “A People of God Unleashed for Maximum Impact in the Palace: The Perspective of the Pentecost Chieftaincy Ministry.”

Apostle Anane Denteh started by asking the following questions:

1. Would a traditional council tell a Christian royal that it is your turn to ascend the throne, but because you are a Christian, we cannot allow you to ascend the throne?

2. Can they also say it is your turn to ascend the throne, so denounce your Christianity and ascend the throne? 

He said that because the answers to these two questions were negative, the church needed to work on Christian royals. He, therefore, called on Christian royals to be very strong and resolute in their faith. 

He quoted Apostle Eric Nyamekye, the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, saying, “We do not have to invite unrepented people to the Church without passing through the gate, which is Jesus Christ.”

Apostle Anane Denteh reiterated the words of Apostle Ousmane Zabre (Burkina Faso National Head) in a sermon, once shared, “It is dangerous to focus on only the conviction of a person about Christianity who is not a converted follower of Christ.”

He emphasised that a Christian royal must have the conviction that God exists and repent by accepting Jesus Christ to become a follower of Christ, as seen in Acts 2:37-39. 

He encouraged traditional leaders to restructure their palaces to accommodate Jesus Christ. By so doing, he said, Christ will be factored in everything in the palace.
