The Church of Pentecost Heads Exposed To Best Leadership Practices


Efforts to enhance the capacities of National Heads and Area Heads of The Church of Pentecost have received a major boost as they have been exposed to best managerial practices at the ongoing 2021 November Heads’ Meeting.

Day One of the week-long meeting which started on Monday, November 8, 2021, at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, near Kasoa, saw university dons handling various topics such as Creating a positive Organisational Climate and employee discipline, Leadership Work Ethic and Productive Code of Conduct and Area Head as Manager.

Professor Justice Nyigmah Bawole, Dean of the University of Ghana Business School, who handled the topic: “Leadership Work Ethic and Productive Code of Conduct,” touched on ten leadership qualities that every leader must cultivate. This includes showing concern for others/subordinates, integrity, self-confidence, vision, vitality, and charisma.

Dr. Majoreen Osafroadu Amankwah, Lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School, spoke on the topic: “Creating a Positive Organisational Climate and Employee Discipline.”

She stressed the need for managers to discipline employees when they go wrong, saying, “If you don’t, it means that you are endorsing the wrong thing because we can’t run our organisations by ignoring the wrong things people do.”

Professor Ernest Yaw Tweneboah-Koduah, a Senior Lecturer of the University Ghana Business School, on his part, handled the topic: “Area Head as a Manager.” He noted that the customer is the most important asset of every institution, including the church.

According to him, the church as an organisation has two customers – internal and external customers. The internal customers, he said, are the office workers and the pastors that work under the National/Area Heads, while the external customers are the larger church membership within their jurisdictions.

Each of the two groups, he said, is very important to the existence of the church.

“The members are the source of the revenue that fund the continuing operations of the church. Without external members, The CoP will not set up the general headquarters and employ people to work,” he said.

Prof. Tweneboah-Koduah entreated the heads to appreciate the efforts of their subordinates and ensure that there is a mutual respect in the way they relate to them.
