The Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) has elected a seven member-Executive Council with Apostle George Yeboah as Chairman to steer the affairs of the Church, for the next four years.
The election climaxed the 62nd Annual Ministerial and General Council Meeting of the Church, held in Accra.
Apostle Yeboah, who becomes the eighth leader of the first Pentecostal movement in Ghana, holds a Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counselling and a former Territorial Apostle of the Accra East Territory of the church.
With him to run affairs are, the Reverend Samuel Amponsah Frimpong, General-Secretary, Apostle Enoch Osafo, Field Director, Rev. Samuel Addai Kusi, Missions Director, Apostle Prosper Agbaglo Dogbey, Evangelism Director, Apostle Joseph Arhin, Christian Education Director and Apostle George Morklah, is the Prophetic Director.
The Council meeting is held to deliberate matters of the Church and seek the face of God for its growth, the prosperity and peace of the nation, wisdom and direction for the national leaders and the wellbeing of all citizens.
This year’s meeting was held under theme: ‘Stewards in Nation Building” drawn from the Church’s 2019 theme: ‘Fulfilling the Requirement of a Steward’ as directed in 1 Corinthians 4:2.
The Clergy, Laity, Elders, Deacons and Deaconesses as well as prophets across the country and abroad joined with one accord to express their gratitude to God and initiate programmes for the growth of the church.
Apostle Dr Amoani, the outgoing Chairman, in his opening address, commended President Akufo-Addo for setting-up the Emile Short Commission to investigate the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence.
He condemned the rising of party tugs and militias in politics, saying their negative activities progressed gradually from the by-elections in Akwatia, Atiwa, Walensi and Talensi, with resultant injuries and agony to innocent people.
He expressed the hope that the Commission would come out with pragmatic recommendations to be followed by measures to disband and deter people from forming such groups.
Apostle Amoani urged the authorities of the security agencies to address the lapses in the operations of the Police Service, especially during by-elections, to build the absolute trust of Ghanaians in their operations.
Ghanaians, he said, should protect and defend the values of the nation by not giving room to anything that would tarnish the good image of Ghana, which had become a beacon of hope and the gateway to Africa.
Plant more Churches
Apostle Yeboah, on behalf of his compatriots, urged the Clergy to be united in the body of Christ, and strive to develop the potentials of church members for the progress of the Church.
He praised their predecessors for their good work in forging the Church ahead.
Apostle Dr Emmanuel O. Donkor, the General Secretary, also praised the Council members for winning more souls and planting churches for the expansion of God’s Kingdom.
He asked them to continue to work hard, especially in infrastructural development, evangelism and church planting activities, human resource development, as well as empowering the governance institutions.
Apostle Michael Nimo, a former Chairman of the Church led the prayers.
