The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has underscored the need for people in leadership positions to apply wisdom in the day-to-day management of their organisations in order to produce desired results.
“We need wisdom to lead,” he stated, while speaking at the 2020 End-of-Year Management Meeting of The Church of Pentecost General Headquarters at the Sophia McKeown Temple at La in Accra, on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.
According to Apostle Nyamekye, the success or otherwise of every organisation revolves around leadership.
He indicated that wisdom is a very important ingredient in effective management since it is one of the virtues leaders critically need to lead.
Reading from Genesis 2:15 (The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it), he explained that God created man to manage the earth and everything therein.
The Chairman further charged leaders to lead with diligence, saying, “Leadership is not about showmanship or power, but about diligence.”
Diligence, he explained, is “careful hard work,” and that by wisdom and diligence, leaders succeed in building thriving organisations (Romans 12:6-9; Proverbs 22:29; Proverbs 9:1; Proverbs 8:1, 15-16).
Commending the Heads of Departments and Sectional Heads of the Headquarters for their commitment to duty which, he said, has helped build a robust church, he encouraged them to continue to work with wisdom and diligence to turn situations around.
The General Secretary, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, on his part, thanked the managers and the senior staff for supporting the top management team in running the organisation.
Present were the International Missions Director (IMD), Apostle Emmanuel Gyesi-Addo, and the Finance and Administration Director (FAD), Apostle Lawrence Otu Nyarko, among others.
