“You Must Be Born Again” Gospel Crusade Ends On A High Note

It was a wonderful sight to behold when scores of students and staff of the University of Education, Winneba, assembled at the Josphus Anamuah-Mensah Conference Hall for the climax of the “You Must Be Born Again” Gospel Crusade last Sunday.

The three-day crusade was organised by the University’s Student Representative Council (SRC) Chaplaincy in collaboration with the Schools Outreach Ministry of The Church of Pentecost (COP).

The interdenominational crusade, which was held under the theme: “Jesus Died That I Might Live” (2 Corinthians 5:15), began from Thursday, August 5, 2022, at the Winneba Presby Park each night.

Delivering a sermon on the topic, “The Authority of the Name of Jesus,” the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, said that the name Jesus refers to the embodiment of the Godhead, that is God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Apostle Nyamekye explained that when Adam was created, God gave him the power to name all creation, saying, “He bequeathed man the authority to give names to His creation because He wanted him to have that authority. (Genesis 2:19)

The Chairman, therefore, pointed out that Adam named creation, and since then, humans give names to creation.

“We all want to be identified by a name, but a name is not just for identification; all that a person is, is vested in his name,” Apostle Nyamekye stated.

He, however, admonished the youth to carry themselves well in order not to destroy their names forever, adding, “When your name is destroyed while alive, then it is better dead than being alive. This is because your name stands in for you.”

Quoting the statement of Dr Charles Blair, the Chairman stated that: “The business of a man is determined by the cause he lives for and the price he is willing to pay to achieve it.”

He further cautioned the student to desist from allowing politics to make them insolent and disrespectful towards authority and management.

Speakers for the crusade were Apostle Lt. Col. Benjamin Godson Kumi-Woode (Chaplain, Ghana Armed Forces), Apostle Nana Yaw Agyei (Kade Area Head, COP), Apostle Samuel Otu Appiah (Winneba Area Head, COP), Pastor Ebenezer Hagan (Youth Ministry Director, COP), and Pastor Richard Atobra (Resident PENSA Campus Pastor, UEW).

Among the university management present were Rev. Prof. Jonathan Armah (representative of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Mawutor Avoke), Rev. Prof. Alexander Edwards (University Chaplain, UEW), and other management, faculty and staff members of the university.

Also present was the National Coordinator for the Schools Outreach Ministry of the church, Elder Desmond Addison.
