Three new members have joined the board of the Pentecost Press Limited. They are Apostle Dr. Dela Quampah, the Area Head for Ho who now chairs the board; Pastor Dr. Felix Dela Klutse, the incoming Media Ministry Pastor of the church, and Deaconess Isabella Orhin, a Communications and Human Resource professional.
They replace Apostle Ekow Badu Wood, outgoing Board Chairman; Pastor Isaac Annor, outgoing Publications Manager of the church, and Mrs. Mabel Darko.
Speaking at a brief ceremony on August 11, 2021, at the Conference Room of the Pentecost Press, the outgoing Board Chairman, Apostle Ekow Badu Wood, urged the new board chairman and his team to strive for excellence in all their endeavours.
“The Press must operate with profit, longevity and expansion in mind,” he said, adding, “Leadership expects us to enter into publishing on a large scale and increase clientele base with the vision to become a model in publishing in the sub-region.”
Apostle Badu Wood noted that the Pentecost Press is a strategic partner in the Chairman’s vision of “Possessing the Nations” and cannot afford to let the Chairman down.
“We have a great vision but it is not beyond our horizon looking at the resources that we have including our spiritual resources. I will, therefore, exhort you to think against the forces of gravity,” Apostle Badu Wood said.
He also encouraged the new members to get on board and get the work done. “You were selected from the over three million members of The Church of Pentecost; it is by grace that your names were mentioned,” he stated.
Apostle Badu Wood also quoted various scriptures including Ecclesiastics 7:10, James 3:17, Exodus 16:1-2, Haggai 2:18-19 and urged the board to look forward to their task, “Every day is a new day and presents a new opportunity. Let us not be dissatisfied with the present; the old can never be better than the new. We can learn from the experiences of the old but we should never wish that the old would come back,” he explained.
The incoming Board Chairman, Apostle Dr. Dela Quampah, was grateful to the Chairman of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, and the Executive Council for the honour done him and his team to be selected to serve on the board. He said that the new board will live up to expectations by ensuring that ideas expressed in the boardroom impact the organisation positively.
Other Board members include Elder Bernard Bosumprah Esq., Pastor Gideon Amfo, Managing Director, Pentecost Press; Elder Benjamin Anaman, a chartered accountant, and Elder Kwame Antwi, a Management Consultant.
The Pentecost Press is the oldest business entity of The Church of Pentecost. It started in a garage at the Headquarters of the church with two staff and a few equipment. It was incorporated in 1983 and has now become the state-of-the-art printing business offering services to the church and beyond.
