The Takoradi Area of The Church of Pentecost has organized a financial seminar for over 500 church leaders within the Area to educate them on the Church’s finance policies.

The seminar, which took place on Saturday, November 13, 2021, at the A. T. Nartey Memorial Temple, was attended by district ministers, district clerks, presiding elders, local and district finance committee chairpersons, finance team members and ministry executives at the local and district levels.

Reading from 1 Corinthians 4:1-2, the Takoradi Area Secretary, who doubles as the Effiakuma District Minister, Pastor Stephen Okyere Acheampong, indicated that faithfulness and knowledge are essential factors needed to thrive in the fast-growing technological world.

He explained that when one is entrusted with a task, it is expedient that the person acquires the necessary knowledge to enable them to undertake that task effectively, efficiently, and faithfully.

He, therefore, urged the participants to be fully involved in the seminar and to apply the knowledge and the skills acquired to discharge their duties with faithfulness and integrity.

Elders Samuel Henry Cudjoe and Joseph Bentum of the Audit Monitoring and Evaluation Department of The Church of Pentecost Headquarters were the facilitators for the event. 

They educated the participants on how to fill the Cash Analysis Book, Daily Offering Book, Assets Book, Payment Voucher, internal controls and policy directives of the Church, among others.

The participants were also taken through some of the findings and recommendations of the national auditors during their recent visit to districts in the Area.

There was a question-and-answer session to allow the participants to seek clarifications.

In attendance at the seminar were Elder Daniel Kobina Quaye (Area Deacon), district ministers, some Area Executive Committee members and the Area Accounts staff, among other stakeholders.
