The Yendi Area Women’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost organised its maiden skills training and personal development programme, dubbed “ABEDENARS Conference,” from November 16 to 18, 2023, at the Yendi Central Assembly church auditorium.
The three-day residential retreat was under the theme: “Repositioning Ladies with Skills Set, for Maximum Impact in the Local Church” (Titus 2:7-8, Prov 31:13) and was targeted at virtuous ladies aged 13 to 35.
The programme was modeled after the ABIDEDOES Conference organised earlier this year by the ministry at the national level.
The highly successful maiden conference drew over 300 women from the thirty-two districts of the Area.
Participants were taken through liquid and bar soap making, brown sugar, body powder preparation, and wig cap fixing.
Some of the personal development and social growth topics treated include Manners and Etiquettes, Having a Winning Attitude, and Handling Courtship and Dating in a Godly Way.
Additionally, a medical doctor took participants through mental health and breast cancer education.
Participants were also taken through financial management training to educate them on simple bookkeeping skills.
The resource persons who took participants through the several training sessions were Pastor John Essah (Area Youth Ministry Leader), Deaconess Patricia Aggor (Area Women’s Ministry Leader), Deaconess Sarah Adomako Bonsu (Assistant Leader), Mrs. Getrude Napari, Dr. Harvoh, and Elder Morgan Aggor (Area Deacon).
