PENSA-Pakistan Inaugurated

History was made on Saturday, May 25, 2024, when the Pakistan branch of the Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) was officially inaugurated. The event also saw the induction of the national youth executives into their respective offices.

The inauguration marked the climax of a four-day seminar organised by PENSA International, attended by notable figures including Apostle Dr. Jamil Nasir (National Head, Pakistan), Apostle Ebenezer Hagan (Youth Director), Overseer Kofi Owusu Boakye (PENSA International Coordinator), Pastor Samuel Asare, Pastor Jonathan Ebo Quaye, Pastor Gordon Ansah, Overseer Emmanuel Koduah, Overseer Isaac Brobbey Boadu, Elder Alfred Yamoah, Elder Dr. Samson Ali, along with all pastors in Pakistan, the Global Coordinating Team of PENSA International, and many others.

The seminar commenced on Monday with the theme “Be Strong and Courageous; Leaders of the Possessors of Nations,” based on Joshua 1:6. The Youth Director, Apostle Ebenezer Hagan, opened the session with a talk titled “Leading with Courage in the Midst of Fear.” He emphasised the need for courage in challenging situations, illustrating his point with the story of Joshua leading the Israelites to the promised land despite opposition. He encouraged PENSA leaders to be strong and guide the group towards its God-ordained destiny. Apostle Hagan’s presentation set a positive tone for the entire program.

On the second day, Overseer Isaac Brobbey Boadu, Head of PENSA Establishment, presented on the history, aims, and objectives of PENSA. He continued his presentation on the third day, discussing the leadership structure, the qualities of a leader, and the various departments within PENSA.

Pastor Jonathan Ebo Quaye, Campus Pastor for KNUST and Ghana representative for PENSA International, led the fourth session. He spoke on “How to Make PENSA Services Attractive on Your Campuses,” using scriptural references from Psalm 127:3-5, Hebrews 10:24-25, and 1 Corinthians 9:22. He emphasised understanding the audience’s age group, cultural background, and religious context as crucial to attracting members to PENSA in Pakistan.

Overseer Emmanuel Koduah spoke on the fourth day about “Taking Over the Campuses with the Gospel,” with references from Acts 10:2-3. He highlighted the importance of evangelism on campuses, effective strategies for evangelism, and follow-up discipleship.

The establishment and inauguration of PENSA-Pakistan on May 25, 2024, were celebrated with great joy. The event was blessed by the presence of distinguished guests, including Apostle Ebenezer Hagan, Apostle Dr. Jamil Nasir, and Rev. Kofi Owusu Boakye. Rev. Boakye ministered on “A People of Covenant Unleashed,” with scriptural references from 1 Peter 2:9 and Jeremiah 1:5, encouraging the church to walk as covenanted people equipped to possess the nations.

At the climax of the event, Apostle Dr. Jamil Nasir inducted the national youth executives, followed by Apostle Ebenezer Hagan who inaugurated PENSA Pakistan and inducted the PENSA National Coordinating Team. The inauguration and induction brought immense joy to the participants, who celebrated with clapping and praise. The leadership hopes that this seed planted in Pakistan will grow into a mighty oak.

Closing the event, Apostle Ebenezer Hagan and Apostle Dr. Jamil Nasir expressed their profound gratitude to God, the church’s chairman, the general secretary, the International Missions Director, the executive council, and all who contributed to the church’s growth in Pakistan. They acknowledged that to God be all the glory for the great things He has done.

One of PENSA International’s mandates is to establish PENSA chapters in nations where The Church of Pentecost is present but lacks a student fellowship, and to provide training sessions to equip them to possess the nations for God. In this spirit, the leadership of PENSA International, in collaboration with the Church of Pentecost Pakistan, mobilised and trained young men and women to fulfill this mission through PENSA activities.
