The ‘Impact Makers Conference’ of the Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) Ghana, has ended with the youth being fired up to reposition themselves to make the necessary impact in their spheres of lives.
The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, closed the conference on Thursday, January 5, 2023, at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh.
It was attended by about 5,600 students and alumni from three centres – University for Development Studies (UDS), Tamale; Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST), Kumasi and PCC, Gomoa Fetteh.
Addressing the participants, Apostle Nyamekye urged them to reposition their minds, hearts, and hands to achieve success in their daily lives.
“If you want to reposition the church, it is imperative to reposition the youth for maximum impact in society,” he said.
He emphasised that as far as the salvation of humanity is concerned, God has crowned the heads of believers with blessings, stating, “The transforming relationship between believers and God begins with the renewal of the mind.”
He admonished students to desist from occultic and false prophetic activities on campus. He further charged them to move away from mere superstition and avoid reducing Christianity to rings, handkerchiefs, water, and anointing oils, but rather pay attention to the Word of God.
Explaining the Trinity, the Chairman said that God the Father sent Jesus to earth in order to die and save mankind, after believing in Jesus Christ, He brought the Holy Spirit to live with man forever under his instructions.
There was an ordination of 245 new officers made up of elders, deacons and deaconesses performed by the General Secretary, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi.
