The International Missions Director (IMD) of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe, has indicated that church members are mandated under Vision 2028 to transform their world individually.
He made this call on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at the opening session of the 2024 Apostolisation (Officer’s Retreat) in the Techiman Area when he spoke at the Ministers and Wives session at the Dwomor Central Assembly Auditorium.
Apostle Agyemang Bekoe explained that under Vision 2028, not only are pastors directly in charge of ministry and transforming the world, but every single member of the church is mandated to take control of their spheres, which includes their homes, workplaces, and anywhere they find themselves for transformation.
Speaking on the theme, “A chosen people unleashed,” the IMD explained that a chosen people means selected people.
Drawing inspiration from 1 Peters 2:9, Apostle Agyemang Bokoe disclosed that when God chooses people, “they are hidden for a time but revealed after a time,” adding that, “The Church of Pentecost has gone through the hiding season and is now in the season of being revealed.”
“Vision 2023 was the period God hid The Church of Pentecost, and Vision 2028 is the revelation period,” he said.
He also stated that people whom God chooses are not ordinary people. He, therefore, called on ministers to make their churches extraordinary with the spirit of God present.
Another characteristic he noted is that chosen people do not fear the laws, dangers, and intimidation of the world, saying, “It doesn’t mean there won’t be fear or danger. But in the face of danger, courage is used.”
Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe admonished ministers to ensure that all their sermons and activities throughout the year align with the 2024 theme, “A people of God, unleashed to transform their world,” and Vision 2028 as a whole.
Present at the service were Apostle Isaac Nii Kotei Djani (Techiman Area Head and the RCC Coordinator for Bono and Ahafo Regions) and Prophet Samuel Tetteh Doku (New Tafo Area Head).
The Techiman Area Apotolisation is divided into two sessions. The morning sessions will be attended by ministers and their wives from Tuesday, February 6, 2024, to Friday, February 9, 2024, while the evening sessions will be attended virtually by officers, proposed and potential officers from various zones and selected districts.
