Shekinah PENSA Conference Kicks-Off Nationwide

The Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) Pre-Tertiary and Teens Conference of the Youth Ministry of The Church of Pentecost dubbed, ‘Shekinah PENSA Conference 2022,’ has kicked off in a grand style.

The divine experience and encounter conference, which started on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, at the command centre at the Mamprobi Central auditorium in the Dansoman Area of the church, is being held virtually with 520 satellite centres across the country, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm each day. Being streamed live on Pent TV and the social media platforms of the church, the event is expected to end on Saturday, June 11, 2022.

The Shekinah PENSA Conference is under the theme, “Equipping Young People As God’s Army To Possess the Nations,” – Hebrews 13:20-21; Ephesians 4:11-12, 6:10-11.

In his welcome address, the Youth Director of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Ebenezer Hagan, pointed out that the conference was initiated to help minister to the teens in the church.

He encouraged the youth to be expectant of massive transformation in their lives as they patronise the conference.

Speaking on the theme of the conference, Apostle Professor Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua, Vice-Chancellor of the Pentecost University, outlined that the theme brings out three major areas, namely a certain group (young people); who need to be equipped (army), and for a reason (possessing the nations).

Apostle Prof. Agyapong-Kodua urged the youth to engage God and have a purpose that will lead them to the right destination.

“The ultimate purpose for all Christian activities is to facilitate the reclaiming of the kingdoms of the world back to God,” he stated, stressing that young people should not miss the agenda for what they were called to do on earth.

The Vice-Chancellor added that the purpose of the crucifixion of Christ and his resurrection was to purchase for himself a people who would facilitate the reclaiming of the world for God.

“To possess the nations, the Lord needs an army,” he said, adding, “The greatest legacy of any young person is to leave a mark of trust, faithfulness and determination to stand for the Lord anywhere.”

Apostle Prof. Agyapong-Kodua further indicated that the baptism of the Holy Spirit brings empowerment and transformation. Therefore, it is imperative to be ‘crazily’ in love with the Holy Spirit.

He also urged Christian youth to be equipped with the knowledge of God, and be prayerful and determined as Daniel and his friends portrayed in Babylon.

Notable among the speakers for this year’s conference are Apostle Eric Nyamekye (Chairman of the church), Apostle Samuel Osei Asante (Patron of the Youth Ministry and Koforidua Area Head of the church), and Apostle Emmanuel Agyei Kwafo (National Co-ordinator of the Home and Urban Missions).

Others are Pastor Ebenezer Hagan (Youth Ministry Director), Pastor Emmanuel Opoku Mensah (PENSA Travelling Secretary, Takoradi Sector), Pastor Stephen Safo Nsiah (PENSA Travelling Secretary, Mampong Sector), Papa Kyere Nyamekye, Elder Samuel Nkansah (PENSA Ghana Co-ordinator), and Mrs. Theodora Oduro.

Present at the opening session was Prophet Ebenezer Kofi Appiah, the Dansoman Area Head of the church, who chaired the occasion. Others were PENSA Travelling Secretaries from the various sectors of the country.
