Tamale Area Chieftaincy Ministry Inaugurated

The Tamale Area of The Church of Pentecost, led by Apostle Sylvester Arhin, has inaugurated a seven-member Area Chieftaincy Ministry committee charged with providing chaplaincy services to the palaces. 

The committee members are Pastor Mark Alhassan Muhammad (Chairman/Leader), Pastor Salasie Amedeka, Elder Peter Baaba, Elder Malgunaa Haruna Alhassan, Elder Joseph Kumah, Elder Adam Nabila, Mr. Moses Nteche, and Pastor Isaac Deku (Coopted).

Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, the National Coordinator of the Chieftaincy Ministry, who is also the Director for the Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM) and an Executive Council Member of the Church, inducted the committee during a colourful event, which took place at the Tishegu Assembly auditorium on October 31, 2022.

Delivering a sermon titled “The Divine Order for Kings” at the event with Proverbs 16:10-13 as his Bible reference, Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh emphasised that God is “a King and The King” whose reign is eternal has no boundaries. 

According to him, God, out of His benevolence towards mankind, bequeathed part of his rulership to kings of the earth and has established ordinances within which they are to exercise their authority.

The PEMEM Director further stated that God has given the kings dignity and power, therefore, they must endeavour to walk in the ordinances of the Lord so that they do not soil their dignity.

He mentioned that the divine order for kings is to delight themselves in righteousness, truth, justice, and wisdom and lead their subjects skillfully (Proverbs 22:29), adding that “it is was ordained that royals should be accountable to both God and his people.”

Apostle Anane Denteh, therefore, called on royals to subject their kingship to the rulership of God, whose reign is limitless and whose authority is endless.  

He also advised Christian royals not to turn down the opportunity to serve as kings or chiefs in their communities since it is a leadership role through which they could positively influence and transform society.

“Kingmakers in the nation should allow Christian royals who prefer to rule by and with the principles of the Scriptures to become kings, unlike other positions that are by appointment or elections, royals are born and nothing can change that identity,” he said.

He also urged kings to be dutiful and to serve their subjects well by seeking their interests at all times.

“Thus, it was imperative o know God ND have his mind in order to enjoy peace and satisfaction,” he added.

Apostle Sylvester Kofi Arhin, also an Executive Council member of the Church, advised royals to surrender their ways, lives, and rule to Jesus Christ, the eternal King of all kings, stressing that “this is the wisest way to rule in power and glory.”

The well-patronised event draws some National Executive Committee (NEC) members of PEMEM, namely Elder Oubor Augustine Nigarim Poyari (NEC Member, Chieftaincy Committee), Pastor Benarnd Aziz Mohammed Abogorago. 

Amongst the royals that graced the programme were Mohamadu Yusif Chief of Salamba, Gewendy Yusif, Mohinaa Moshie Chief, Nii Titibiku (Ewe Chief Odikoro), Mohamadu Issahaku (Tishegu Kpanalana), Adam Abdulai (Tishegu Kpehigunaa), other royals from Tamale, a cultural troupe also from Tamale, the Tamale Area pastorate and their wives, and the members of the Church.

Other dignitaries present were; Mrs Regina Arhin, wife of the Tamale Area Head and Mrs Martha Boakyiwaa Denteh, wife of the PEMEM Director.
