Three outgoing Ministry Directors of The Church of Pentecost have formally handed over the administration of their respective ministries to their successors.
The event, which took place on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, at the Headquarters in Accra, was supervised by the Chairman of the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Committee (RCC), Apostle David Tettey Tekper, and the General Secretary, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, on behalf of the Chairman, Apostle Eric Nyamekye. Also present to witness the ceremony was Prophet David Kankam Beditor (Ashaiman Area Head/Executive Council Member).
The ceremony saw the outgoing Children’s Ministry Director, Apostle Fred Tiakor, handing over to his successor, Pastor Prof. William Otoo Ellis, while Deaconess Mrs. Grace Lucy Yeboah-Asuama (outgoing Women’s Ministry Director) handed over to her successor, Deaconess Mrs. Philomina Mireku. Apostle Emmanuel Ofei Ankra-Badu (outgoing Pentecost Men’s Ministry Director) also handed over to Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, the new director.
Both the outgoing Deputy Women’s Director, Deaconess Mrs. Margeret Osei, and the incoming Deputy Director, Deaconess Mrs. Vivian Amfo, were present.
In his remarks, the General Secretary, Apostle Kumi-Larbi, stated that the exercise was very important in the administration of the Church.
He stated that the process has delayed since the Church’s calendar begins in September. This, he said, was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic which affected the Church’s calendar.
According to him, the new directors will officially resume work on November 3, 2020.
Pastor Prof. Otoo Ellis, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, thanked God and the leadership of the Church for offering them the opportunity to serve the Church. He also thanked the outgoing directors for the great work done in the ministries.
While calling for the support of leadership, their predecessors, and all stakeholders to help them to effectively carry out their mandates, the new Children’s Director pledged their commitment to do their best to serve the Church in their new positions.
