Youth Director Pays Working Visit To Mampong Area

The Director of the Youth Ministry of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Ebenezer Hagan, has paid a three-day working visit to the Mampong Area of the Church in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

The visit, which commenced on Friday, August 26, 2022 with a Ministers and Wives’ session at the Mary Afia Amaniampong Temple (MAAT) in the morning, was followed with a session with youth workers and youth members in the Agona and Mampong zones of the area later in the evening.

Addressing the gathering on the topic, “We Can Stand,” the Youth Director challenged the youth to lead a victorious Christian life by standing against sin and the deceit (schemes) of the devil aimed at destroying their faith in Christ Jesus.

Quoting Colossians 2:4 & 8, he urged the participants to be vigilant and grounded in Christ in order to withstand the deceit of the evil one.

According to him, the devil could use anyone to tempt the believer; and when they fall for it, he (devil) will enslave them. 

In contemporary times, he further stated, the devil is deceiving humanity through worldly philosophies (worldviews) and superstitious beliefs.

Reading from Romans 14:4 and Colossians 2:16-18, Pastor Hagan urged the youth not to fail their generation, but to do whatever it takes to stand for the Lord no matter how hard the storms of life may rage

He indicated that God has made available for them the needed strength and power to overcome the devil and his cohorts in the Holy Spirit. He further explained that, despite the power of sin, God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, has given humanity power to overcome it. 

“Jesus Christ died to sin and ended its power over us once and for all. Through His death, we have our victory over sin,” he said.

To be able to stand and be well grounded in Christ, the Youth Director advanced the youth to  constantly seek the infilling of the Holy Ghost, take daily devotions seriously, and be actively involved in Church and youth activities. 

He also charged them to do their best not to give their body to sin nor allow the negative aspects of social media to have an adverse impact on their Christian life.

After the sermon, the Mampong Area Head, Apostle Samuel Kwabena Asare, advised the youth to hold on to the message received as he led the house in a time of intense prayers. The prayer session resulted in 57 participants receiving Holy Spirit baptism.

Present at the event were Mrs. Beatrice Asare (Wife of the Area Head), Mrs. Priscilla Hagan (Wife of the Youth Director), ministers of the Church within the Agona and Mampong zones and spouses, the leadership of the Area Women’s Ministry. 

The Youth Director also fellowshipped with PENSA AMUSTED and the Ejura Zone on Saturday, August 27, before drawing the curtains down on his visit on Sunday, August 28, 2022.
