Pastor Asamoah Omono Retires

A retirement service was held in honour of the Teshie District Minister of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Osei Kwame Asamoah Omono, and his family at the Samuel Kwadwo Osei Memorial Temple in Teshie on Sunday, October 25, 2020, after successfully serving for 28 years in the full-time ministry.

The service, which was officiated by the Teshie-Nungua Area, Apostle Dr. Alfred Koduah, was attended by the pastorate in the Area and their wives as well as family and well-wishers from all parts of the country.

In a sermon on the topic, “Finishing Well as a Minister” Apostle Dr. Alfred Koduah quoted various Bible texts including Ecclesiastics 7:8; 2 Timothy 4:7. Colossians 4: 14-17 and Philippians 1:1&2, and urged ministers to strive to bring their ministerial service to a close in dignity. He said that Bible characters like Solomon, Judas Iscariot, and Demas did not finish their roles on good notes. He urged them to finish well like Jesus and Apostle Paul.

He cautioned Christians against distractions that can cause them to stray off a good path and their vision. “We must watch out for money, women, frustrations, and bitterness,” he said, adding, “Rather let’s embrace prayers, respect for Bible authority and respect for all people.”

Pastor Asamoah Omono was called into the full-time ministry of The Church of Pentecost in 1991. After his training at the Bible school, he was stationed at Nsesreso in the Sunyani Area from 1992 to 1998. He served in five other stations including Asuboni Rails District in the Nkawkaw Area (1998-2003), Dwenho in the Agona Swedru Area (2003-2006), Apedwa in the Suhum Area ((2006-2012), Fan Milk District in the Anyaa-Ablekuma Area (2012-2017) as well as Teshie District (2017-2020).

As a Mechanical Engineer from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Pastor Asamoah Omono served in various committees and held many positions at various levels.

The Teshie District described Pastor Asamoah Omono as a faithful servant, a great pastor, and a friend to everyone.

The Area Pastorate in their testimony of his good work stated: “He is very sociable, calm and humble. He is also a man of prayer, always encouraging his colleague ministers to make quality time for prayer and meditation and a lover of music.”

The Women’s Ministry also paid a glowing tribute to Mrs. Margaret Akosuah Akyaa Asubonten Asamoah Omono, saying, “She always has good thoughts which radiate her face; she is not biased and treats everyone equally.”

In response, Pastor Asamoah Omono and his family were grateful to God Almighty for his protection and guidance. They were also grateful to the Executive Council of the Church for their good counsel and the opportunity to serve the Lord as a minister.

He thanked Apostle Patrick Kingsley Ennin (his former Area Head) for his support during the difficult years in ministry when his wife, Margeret was sick to the point of death. He was full of appreciation to the Teshie-Nungua Area Head, Apostle Dr. Alfred Koduah, as well as the Area pastorate for their support in his last days in ministry.

He was also grateful to Elder Alfred Quainoo and family who have also ensured that they have a restful retirement.
