The Church of Pentecost Chairman Pays Courtesy Call On Twifo Heman Paramount Chief


As part of efforts to build a formidable union and bridge the gap between the church and the chieftaincy institution, The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has paid a courtesy call on Otumfuo Amoah Sasraku IV, Paramount Chief of Twifo Heman Traditional Council.

This occurred not long at the Tuaanko Palace, in Twifo Hemang, in the Central Region of Ghana, during his ministerial visit to the Twifo Praso Area of The Church of Pentecost (CoP).

He was accompanied by Pastor David Addo-Pappoe (Twifo Praso Area Head, The Church of Pentecost), Pastor Matthew Mpaba (Twifo Nyinase District Minister, The Church of Pentecost), Pastor Seth Kwame Sackey (Twifo Hemang District Minister, CoP), Pastor Samson & Mrs. Rejoice Abradu (Twifo Mampong District, CoP), Pastor Vincent Ephraim Amegah (Twifo Praso District Minister, CoP), and Elder Seth Addo-Kumi (Twifo Praso Area Deacon, CoP).

In a short address, Apostle Nyamekye noted that service to the nation critically relies on the chiefs, and mentioned that in the olden days, priests and kings ruled together.

According to the Chairman of the church, God used Solomon to rule and lead Israel when he based on the Bible while asking for wisdom from Him.

“Therefore, I am confident that if you take the Bible, as your companion in leading your people, Twifo Heman would flourish,” he stated.

The Chieftaincy Ministry, a new ministry in the church, that has the mandate to visit and oversee the chaplaincy needs of royals and chiefs, he iterated has been put in place to help them well.

“Chieftaincy is leadership, therefore if someone says he wants to rule, it is to serve the people,” he said, adding: “It is a sacrifice unto the people, not a place to enrich oneself”.

Otumfuo Amoah Sasraku IV, Paramount Chief of Twifo Heman Traditional Council, in response recalled that The Church of Pentecost, is noted for their enthusiasm and holistic services in the communities, especially during their crusades and conventions.

He thanked The Church for its continuous prayers and support it renders to the community. He iterated that in God’s own wisdom, it was not idol worshipping that made Saul to be enthroned to lead Israel.

He explained that God had a purpose not for Saul to have his own way. He, however ignored the directions of Prophet Samuel to act on his own accord and God sidelined Saul from the throne.

He entreated fellow chiefs to endeavour to serve their people in the fear of God, while acting according to his will and purpose.

“If the chieftaincy institution and the government together, rely solely on the instructions and Word of God, the nation will be a better one for us all,” he asserted.

He, then admonished the clergy to draw near to the chiefs, in order to teach them the Word of God, despite the resilience against such acts by others.

He lauded the Christendom for its massive impact in the nation, which has even had a toll on the National House of Chiefs, where he reiterated that engages in devotions before meetings commence. Such initiatives he said must be commended greatly and encouraged.

Concluding, he urged The Church of Pentecost, to focus more on its international mission activities where members need more directions and prayers.

Present were Nana Adubofo (Mawerehene), Nana Twafohene (Acting President of Twifo Heman Traditional Council), Nana Mensa Abrampa (Abusuapanin of Twifo Heman Traditional Area), Nana Agyeman (First Son of Twifo Heman Paramout Chief), Nana Adwoa Asor Obeng II (Queenmother of Twifo Heman Traditional Council), Nana Gyamfi (Brother of Twifo Heman Paramout Chief), Aunty Victoria (Siter of Twifo Heman Paramout Chief), Okyeame Oppong (Kyeame panin of Twifo Heman Paramout Chief), and Okyeame Akyena (Kyeame ketewa of Twifo Heman Paramout Chief).
