The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has organised a special ceremony in Accra to honour the immediate past President, Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah (Retd.).
The ceremony which coincided with the induction of the new President, Rev. Prof. Paul Frimpong-Manso, the General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, Ghana, took place last Sunday, September 30, 2018 at the Roman Ridge Assemblies of God Church. It was attended by government officials, heads of churches, and para-church organisations.
Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah who assumed leadership of the GPCC seven years ago (2011-2018), has transformed the council through his management prowess.
In a testimony, the National Executive Council (NEC) of the GPCC, described Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah as “a true man of God and real gem who is a blessing to the body of Christ.”
According to the NEC, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah is an embodiment of selfless and faithful Christian steward that the current generation and generation yet unborn will forever boast and learn from.
“[He is] a disciplinarian, a man of integrity, and a caring father. He is a very versatile man filled with the wisdom of God, always ready to let the will of God prevail and defend the church and body of Christ rather than to please man.
“Apostle Opoku Onyinah served the Lord and Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) with delight, tirelessness, faithfulness, and with great passion for the growth of the organisation.
“We love this man of God for his humility and servant leadership style as well as his passion for missions,” it said.
It further stated: “Your [Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah] investment in the member churches under GPCC has truly made a difference; you offered hope and inspiration to many.
The GPCC NEC admired the music ministry of the outgone President, saying, “One thing you can’t take away from the Apostle is his love for the spirit filled Pentecostal songs.”
“As you go on retirement, we pray that God will give you strength and enjoy the fruit of your labour. May God keep you from wicked men. May God protect you, and may you continue to be a blessing to the body of Christ,” it concluded.
