The President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Rev. Prof Paul Yaw Frimpong Manso has pledged to work with ecumenical bodies in the country to bring national development.
According to him, working closely with GPCC National Executive Council (NEC) members who are open minded, would team up with other ecumenical bodies including Ghana Catholic Bishop’s Conference, Christian Council of Ghana among others to make history during his tenure of office.
He said this during his Induction Ceremony at the Revival Restoration Centre Assemblies of God in Accra.
Rev. Prof Frimpong-Manso stressed that, they would work as a team to achieve a common goal because “none of us is smarter than all of us” and that good leaders work through people.
The President said he would work with NEC members to promote good doctrine and teachings of holy living, discipleship and not forgetting the Pentecostal dimension of ministry that makes them unique to project Christianity.
Touching on how to contribute to humanitarian service in the society, the President noted that, the Council would continue to play its advocacy role of supporting the poor, needy and the vulnerable in the society.
In ensuring the Council contribute to national development, the President stressed that, the Council would offer constructive criticism of issues that affects the development of the nation and commend appropriately on matters that needed commendation.
“In Ghana when you commend or criticise a particular government on a certain project, you are then tagged as being political, but will not scare us, we will continue to speak to the issues,” he said.
Rev Prof Frimpong Manso, who is also the General Superintendent of Assemblies of God, urged Ghanaians to share their views on national issues without being tagged as belonging to any political affiliation.
