Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, the General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, last Sunday, dedicated a brand new 33-seater Hyundai bus purchased by the Shalom Worship Centre for evangelism, discipleship and general welfare commitments.
He was ably assisted by Apostle Dr. Samuel Ofori (Lecturer, School of Theology, Mission and Leadership, Pentecost University) and Pastor James Orhin Agyin (Shalom Worship Centre Resident Minister and Projects, Development and Estate Manager at The Church of Pentecost Headquarters).
Speaking to PENTECOST NEWS in an interview, Pastor Agyin said the vehicle was, among other reasons, acquired to mitigate the inconveniences suffered by members due to the difficulty in commuting to and from the church premises.
He was also hopeful that the advent of the bus would help resolve this challenge and boost members’ attendance to evening services and other church programmes.
“With this bus, we would be able to convey members to vantage locations after evening service where they would easily have access to the services of commercial transport operators. It will also help increase members’ involvement in area programmes such as conveying church members to the Mandela prayer grounds for the monthly Kaneshie Area prayer meeting,” he said.
In addition to other welfare commitments such as attending funerals, weddings programmes, etc, the bus would be used for evangelism outreaches and follow-up exercises, he further stated.
