Nsaba District Central Assembly Auditorium Dedicated
The International Missions Director (IMD) of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Emmanuel Gyesi-Addo, on August 16, 2019, dedicated new church edifice for Nsaba Central Assembly in the Agona Swedru Area.
The edifice was constructed at a total cost of GH¢ 373,926.70, with funding from the Headquarters, district and contributions of members.
Assisting the IMD in dedicating the building were Prophet David Kankam (Area Head of Agona Swedru), Apostle Samuel Yaw Antwi (Area Head of Cape Coast), Apostle Lt. Colonel Kumi-Woode (Ghana Armed Forces), and Apostle Matthew Larbi Wettey (Area Head of Tema).
Others were Apostle James Nana Ofori (Mankessim Area Head), Apostle Samuel Kojo Gakpetor (Anyaa-Ablekuma Area Head), Apostle Samuel Nana Yaw Agyei (PCC Manager) and ministers in the Area. Also present to grace the occasion was Osabarima Bishop Boapiah II (Omanhene of Agona Nsaba) and members of his traditional council.
The church at Nsaba started in 1956 with 11 members under the Agona Swedru District. It was established by an evangelism team from Akim Akroso under the leadership of the founder, Pastor James McKeown. The late Elder Charles Kumi was made the leader of the assembly. The members worshipped in a wooden corn mill structure built by Opanin Kobina Ofori. Opanin Ofori later sold out the land and the wooden structure to the church.
The Nsaba District was created in 1993 when Pastor Anane Babae was the Swedru district minister. As the membership kept increasing, the Elder Charles Kumi and his local presbytery acquired a piece of land from the Achimota Royal family of Agona Nsaba.
Overseer Emmanuel Gyesi-Addo (now Apostle and IMD of the Church) was the first minister to be transferred to the district. He was transferred from the district after he had served for two years and was replaced by Pastor Eric Nyamekye (now Apostle and current Chairman of the Church) in 1995. Pastor Eric Nyamekye in 1997 saw the need to put up a big church building to accommodate the increasing church membership.
When the current District Minister, Pastor John Kodwo Ackah took over, he continued the project in earnest and has completed it for dedication.
