Rekindle Your Zeal For God’s Work – Apostle Adjei-Kwarteng To Children’s Workers

Apostle Yaw Adjei-Kwarteng, an Executive Council Member and the Bompata Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, has issued a call to action for children’s workers to rekindle their zeal and reaffirm their love for God and the children.

Apostle Adjie-Kwarteng, who also serves as the Coordinator for the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Committee (ARCC), gave this charge today when he spoke on the topic “Zeal: The Virtue to Reposition your Ministry” at the 2023 Foundation Builders Conference at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh.

The Bompata Area Head noted that zeal is the driving force behind any vocation or ministry, stressing that “without zeal, progress comes to a halt.”

Quoting 1 Kings 19:31, Apostle Adjei-Kwarteng explained that God Himself is driven by His own zeal and accomplishes His work through it.

He further stated that although God does not require zeal, humans must possess it to thrive, especially in the face of challenges.

Apostle Adjei-Kwarteng outlined love, knowledge, jealousy for God, and the joy of the Holy Spirit as the four major components of zeal.

Citing John 21:20, he emphasised the need for children’s workers to develop a more profound love for God and the children.

According to him, the motivation for Children’s Ministry stems from love because when children’s workers genuinely love God, they will also love His church and show a vested interest in the lives of the children entrusted to their care.

He, therefore, urged children’s workers to be zealous for God and jealously guard the children. For by doing so, they demonstrate a possessive concern for the safety and well-being of the children and ensure they are protected from harm and danger.

“Be concerned about the salvation of the children. As children’s workers, let us strive to bring the young ones close to the altar because that is the safest place to keep them away from predators,” he said.

Apostle Adjei-Kwarteng also advised children’s workers to know God personally and to seek knowledge, mainly through the study of the Bible, adding that: “By developing an experiential knowledge of God, children’s workers can effectively carry out their duties.”

Concluding his message, Apostle Adjei-Kwarteng encouraged children’s workers to generate interest and joy in their work.

Stressing the importance of joy, he highlighted that without it, zeal fades, and workers may lose interest in their work; hence they should cultivate joy in order to find fulfilment in their service.

“It is only then that children’s workers can reignite their zeal and make a lasting impact in the lives of the children they serve.,” he said.
