A bakery jointly funded by the Pentecost Social Services (PENTSOS) and the General Headquarters of The Church of Pentecost has been commissioned at Busunya, near Nkoranza in the Techiman Area.
The PENTSOS Bakery Project is expected to provide direct employment to 150 young people in the Church, function as a skills training centre to train the youth in bread making and pastries, and indirectly create jobs for over 500 people in the Nkoranza North District.
The initiative is a social enterprise project of PENTSOS, the social services wing of The Church of Pentecost, with an overarching purpose to build the productive capacity of the youth and create job opportunities through skills training.
The facility was commissioned by Apostle Isaac Nii Kotei Djani, Techiman Area Head, on June 9, 2021, assisted by the PENTSOS Director, Elder Richard Amaning, and the Busunya District Minister, Pastor Peter Afful Blood.
In a short exhortation from Psalm 90:17 and 1 Thessalonians 4:11, Apostle Kotei Djani admonished members to work with their hands so that they will not be dependent on anybody and receive God’s blessings.
At the commissioning ceremony were the Nkoranza North District Coordinating Director, Representative of the Traditional Authority, Representative of the District Police Commander, and the clergy.
