A delegation from The Church of Pentecost in Togo, and its parallel church executives on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, paid a visit to the Chairman of the Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye.
Led by the National Head of the Church in Togo, Apostle Lare Banimpo, they were received by the Finance & Administration Director of the Church, Apostle Lawrence Otu-Nyarko, at the Church’s General Headquarters in Ghana.
Among the delegation from Togo were Apostle Adeje K. Antoine (Outgoing President), Apostle Kokou M. Degbo (Out-going Secretary), Apostle Akpagana Cephas (National Executive Member, COP Togo), Pastor Samuel A. Obouribe Lawson (President-elect), Pastor Daniel K. Dogbovi (General Secretary-elect), and Pastor Kossi Bafoudam (National Executive Member, COP Togo).
Delivering the purpose of the visit, Apostle Adeje, the outgoing President of the parallel church said that they came to express their appreciation to the Chairman and the Executive Council of the Church for sending representatives to their Council meetings.
He also used the opportunity to inform and invite the Chairman to the induction and farewell service for the President-elect and outgoing President of the parallel church slated for August 27, 2022.
In his response, Apostle Nyamekye congratulated Apostle Adeje for ten years of meritorious service to the church. He pointed out that one of the successes of a leader is to hand over to another successor.

“Two is better than one, therefore, instead of considering a merger between the two churches, make the conscious effort to work together to possess Togo for our Lord Jesus,” Apostle Nyamekye admonished.
He further congratulated the President-elect, Pastor Samuel A. Obouribe Lawson, and charged him to stay strong in the Lord to in order to effectively discharge the task given to him.
