The Women’s Ministry Director of The Church of Pentecost, Mrs. Philomina Mireku, on Friday, July 7, 2023, ended the Ashanti Regional tour, following a four-day working visit to the region.
Accompanied by her Deputy, Mrs. Vivian Ofosua Amfo, and a National Executive Committee Member, Mrs. Abishag Asamoah Boakye, the Women’s Director visited six areas in the Ashanti Region including Bompata, Old Tafo, New Tafo, Asokwa, Kwadaso and Abuakwa; all in Greater Kumasi.
The duty tour began on Tuesday, July 4, 2023, in the Bompata Area, where a leadership seminar was organised for all stakeholders of the Women’s Ministry at the A. T Nartey auditorium, Bantama, after which she met with the women in the Old Tafo Area at the Old Tafo Central Assembly in the evening.
Revealing the purpose of her visit, she said that the Women’s Ministry is practically equipping the women and ladies in the church to influence every sphere through exhibition of Christ-like character, evangelism and service.
She indicated that her visit was to help empower the Women’s Ministry in the region for greater impact in the home, church and country, indicating that the visit has been very fruitful.
Exhorting the women on the topic: “The Family, A Tool For Maximum Impact in the Local Church,” the Women’s Director defined the role of the family and how its fruitful existence helps to empower the local church. She stated that the absence of the family means there is no church, and it is very necessary to secure one’s marriage no matter the challenge.
She added that recognising the husband as the father of the marriage, nourishes the godly growth of the marriage, which releases the peace of God for the virtuous woman to serve God in harmony.
Mrs. Mireku encouraged the congregants to establish a healthy working relationship with all regardless of their backgrounds to approach them with the work of God at any given time. She counselled the women to be submissive to their husbands in every situation, urging them to prioritise safety in their homes.
She admonished that godly discipline is required of the women to shapen the family in a time when their children go wayward to serve as an example for others to follow.
Drawing from the life of the Puritans, the Women’s Director mentioned that the Puritans saw marriage and responsibilities as a calling, which contributed to their greater success in early America, emphasising the need for Christians women to emulate them.
Mrs. Philomina Mireku finally blessed the women and prayed for them to be functional in every area of their lives for maximum impact.
