The New Chairman of Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) Apostle George Yeboah has pledged the church’s continuous partnership with the government to empower the youth and women so they could contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic development of the nation.
According to him, majority of the church members are youth and women, therefore for the nation to experience meaningful growth, his leadership would focus on empowering them to contribute their quota to the overall development of the nation.
Apostle Yeboah who took over from Apostle Stephen K. Amoani made the pledge at his induction service which was held in Accra.
He was inducted together with the incoming General Secretary, the Reverend Samuel Amponsah Frimpong, Field Director, Apostle Enoch Osafo, Missions Director, Rev. Samuel Addai Kusi, Evangelism Director , Apostle Prosper Agbaglo Dogbey, Christian Education Director , Apostle Joseph Arhin, and Prophetic Director Apostle George Morklah.
Delivering his speech at the service, the Chairman noted that, his leadership would ensure social justice and equity for all as part of their contribution to make the world a better place.
Touching on unity, Apostle Yeboah indicated that, he would work with his leadership to deepen the bond of unity that already exists in the Church and the country.
“I therefore call upon all of you to play a role in creating a strong front that will promote peace to the glory of God,” he urged.
Quoting from the bible, he said, a house divided against itself cannot stand, therefore as Christians and Ghanaians, the need has come to work together in peace to promote development in the country.
In pursuance of the spirit filled lifestyle, the Chairman pointed out that, CACI as a classical Pentecostal denomination upholds holiness to God as a core value.
Apostle Yeboah noted they would work hard to eradicate sin and corruption because, ‘we have a responsibility to let our light shine for all men to see’. He said his leadership would place emphasis on holy living among ministers and church members since Christians are the light and salt on the earth.
In a fraternal message, the General Secretary of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) Rev. Emmanuel T. Barrigah commended CACI for a successful election and congratulated the new executives.
Rev. Barrigah praised CACI for their immense contribution towards the growth of the Council and pledged to work with the new leadership.
“I want to appreciate the way you have cooperated with the Council and you have played a great role to bring the Council this far. I also want to congratulate the new executive Council on their assumption and to look forward to a better cooperation in the days to come,” he noted.
Some religious bodies and churches also gave their fraternal message as the new executives assumed office.
The ceremony brought together many dignitaries, religious bodies and churches to witness the induction of the new leaders as they steer the affairs of the Church for the next four years.
