Pentecost University Receives High Commendation

The Pentecost University (PU) has been commended for playing a pivotal role in the higher education space, especially in the areas of producing graduates with integrity, distinguished problem-solving skills, and efforts at consolidating its place as research-led university.

The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, gave the acknowledgement in his State-of-the-Church Address (SOCA) at the opening ceremony of the 18th session of the Extraordinary Council Meetings on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, near Kasoa.

Apostle Nyamekye indicated that the PU, together with the church’s other institutions of higher learning namely, Birmingham Christian College (BCC), UK, Pentecost Biblical Seminary (PBS), USA, and the Pentecost Francophone Theological Bible School (PFTBS), La Cote D’Ivoire continued to provide quality education, promote cross-cultural learning, and offer global perspectives to enriching students’ educational experience.

Apostle Nyamekye who is also the Chancellor of the University recognised the significant strides of the PU in providing significant theological education for the church.

‘In the year under review, PU made significant strides in Theology, Mission, and Pastoral Studies. PU trained and graduated 8,699 Elders, 160 ministers’ wives, and 115 individuals in other certificate programmes related to theology and pastoral studies with 606 ministers pursuing studies to attain BA Theology qualifications,’ he stated.

On ministerial formation for newly called minsters, the Chairman mentioned that 126 ministers were commissioned whereas 78 newly called ministers have commenced their ministerial formation programme at PSTM.

Apostle Nyamekye also mentioned that PU received a 4-year European Commission grant for joint research in robot-based laser manufacturing of electric vehicle components and the receipt of a 3-year European Commission-Africa Union Mobility Grant to offer master’s and PhD training in advanced Digital Manufacturing in Africa. The total grant amount awarded to PU in 2023 was 630,000 Euros.

Thus, PU’s research output, the Chairman explained, has led to a 62.2% increase in publications, and its total financial investment increased by 71.7%.
