The Obuasi Area of The Church of Pentecost, under the leadership of Apostle William Boakye-Agyarko, has inaugurated the “Faithful Giants” wing of the Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM). The Faithful Giants comprises young men within the church who are below 35 years.
The inauguration service took place on Saturday, February 13, 2021, at the Bidie Central Assembly auditorium. It was under the theme: “Sharpening Young Men to Possess the Nations for Christ.”
In a brief exhortation based on Numbers 11:1-8, the Obuasi Area Head indicated that when the incessant complaints and groanings of the Israelites became too much for Moses to bear, the Lord instructed him to appoint 70 elders each from the 12 tribes of Israel so that He would put upon them a portion of his (Moses’) spirit. This, according to Apostle Agyarko, equipped the elders to be able to assist Moses in managing the affairs of the Israelites.
Apostle Agyarko noted that consequently, Moses’ burden became lighter since the elders now took upon themselves part of the responsibilities, adding that, likewise, the Faithful Giants wing has, therefore, been inaugurated to augment the work of PEMEM.
Addressing the gathering, the Area PEMEM Leader, Pastor Moses Nartey, revealed that the leadership of the ministry has initiated plans to mentor members of the Faithful Giants wing through various exercises including prayer meetings and periodic entrepreneurial workshops. He also said that the group would also undertake medical outreaches.
As part of the service, the newly-appointed Faithful Giants Area Coordinator, Secretary and Organiser, together with the various District Coordinators, were prayed for and commissioned by the Area Head to commence work in earnest. They were also tasked to bridge the gap between the Youth Ministry and PEMEM.
To climax the historic event, patrons were each presented with “Faithful Giants” branded exercise books. Part of the books were also donated to the Abdulam Orphanage, Gromesah Primary School and Pentecost Preparatory School, Aboabo. In all, a total of 1,000 books were given out.
