The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has entreated Children’s Ministry workers to be deliberate in training children in the church as foundation builders.
The Chairman said this on Friday, June 17, 2022, during the closing ceremony of the Foundation Builders’ Conference organised by the Children’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa-Fetteh.
Speaking on the topic, “Foundation Conference,” Apostle Nyamekye said that it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken homes. He called for more attention to be given to the Children’s Ministry to ensure a secured future for the church.
“The Children’s Ministry today will determine The Church of Pentecost tomorrow,” he said.
According to the Chairman, the foundation of the church brings the future in place and it is the target of the enemy, adding that “when you manage the Children’s Ministry, you are shaping our future.”
He advised the Children’s Ministry to engage in evangelistic activities to equip children of the church to win others to Christ.
“Make it evangelistic because we are talking about the future of the church,” he stated.
Apostle Nyamekye asked child workers to jealously guard the foundation because it will determine the future.
Reading from Psalm 78:5, the Chairman stressed that God commanded the leaders of Israel to teach the statutes to their children so the next generation would know the laws of God.
He further stated that being foundation builders should not just be a mantra or slogan, rather it should be a conviction and a determined purpose.
“When we project an effective Sunday School teacher, we talk about a praying teacher,” he noted.
He admonished them not to just teach the children, but to clothe the children with priestly garments and hand them over to the Lord.
He asserted that the foundation of the church is so important to God, saying, “The foundation of the church is Jesus Christ and He is a dependable rock.”
Apostle Eric Nyamekye advised Children’s Ministry teachers to show good examples for the children to follow, cautioning that children have vulnerable minds and, therefore, need to be protected.
