The Pentecost Social Services (PENTSOS) of the Dansoman Area of The Church of Pentecost has constructed and dedicated an ultra-modern bus stop shelter with ancillary works at Korle-Bu to serve clients and visitors of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) and the residents of Korle Gonno.
The facility, constructed in collaboration with James McKeown Worship Centre (JMWC), is situated in front of the ATM farms at the main bus stop.
The commissioning and dedication of the facility was held on Friday, August 12, 2022, by the Dansoman Area Head, Prophet Ebenezer Kofi Appiah.
He indicated that the project was in line with the five-year strategic vision of the Church, dubbed “Vision 2023; Possessing the Nations.”
Speaking at the event on the topic “Faith with Works” based on James 2:14-17, Prophet Ebenezer Appiah advised Christians to demonstrate their faith in Christ through their works (actions).
He indicated that though they are saved by faith in Christ, faith must be accompanied by works.
He also urged community members to adopt a good maintenance culture to keep the facility in good condition at all times.
Espousing on the features of the bus stop shelter, which is considered a first of its kind in Ghana, the Resident Minister of the James McKeown Worship Center, Pastor Dr Perez Sepenu, indicated that the facility has a 220V Power Receptacle, LED Power Lighting System, USB Charging Port, Electronic Advertising Boards, 440W Solar Panel, and an adjoining Gospel Tract sharing post.
The church also constructed concrete slabs to cover the gutters in front of the bus stop. The Contractor for the project was Messers. ModPro MMC, one of the fastest and most innovative Companies in Ghana specialises in tackling office and workspace deficiency.
Also present were the Dansoman Area pastorate and their wives, Mrs. Janet Appiah (Wife of the Area Head), Mr Alfred Oko Vanderpuiye (MP for the Ablekuma South Constituency), Nii Tackie Owuowu IV (Chief of Korle Gonno) and his sub-chiefs, Nii Korle Bu Akwashong I (Chief of Korle Bu Sempe,) and his sub-chiefs.
