The Greater Accra Region of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has inducted and inaugurated newly-elected zonal executives of Agomenda-Ayikuma in the Shai-Osudoku municipality.
The new executives are Rev. Nelson Ocloo, Chairman, Pastor Joshua Amehlor-Jackson, Vice Chairman, Rev. Moses Tetteh, Secretary, Pastor Agyei Asafo, Treasurer, and Rev. Gilbert Asigbey, Executive Member.
The induction and inaugural service was organised by the Regional Secretariat which brought together members from various zones in the Greater Accra region.
Speaking at the ceremony, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Shai-Osudoku District Assembly, Mr. Daniel Akuffo commended the leadership and the planning committee for successfully putting together a memorable programme.
Mr Akuffo commended GPCC for shaping the growth and development of the country and impacting the society through the gospel of Christ.
Congratulating the new executives, Mr. Akuffo cautioned them to be faithful as stated in 1 Corinthians 4:2, that required stewards to be found faithful.
“You are expected to work towards the unity of the church both spiritually and physically as well as to mobilise the church towards evangelism,” he said.
He said the leadership should provide a united platform to engage members and Ghanaians in general on national policies to ensure godly leadership and accountable governance.
The DCE entreated Ghanaians to be vigilant in the wake of attacks on the church.
“with recent attacks in Burkina Faso on the Catholic Church by unknown terrorist group killing the priest and other members of the Church, it is a wake call on all the Churches in Ghana as it is rumoured on Social Media that their next line of action is Ghana, Togo and Ivory Coast,” Mr. Akuffo cautioned.
Giving a sermon at the ceremony, the GPCC Regional Secretary, Rev. Johny Apeakorang urged the newly elected executives to take the work of God as their own business as a way to promote the vision and mission of GPCC.
“You should be business-minded in handling the work of God,” he noted.
The Secretary mentioned that some members of the Council were not committed and challenged the new executives to work hard so they could get them commit to GPCC.
Rev Apeakorang noted “we need more hands to do the work of God,because GPCC is the largest Christian ecumenical body in the Country” he said.
He said even though GPCC is not a church, members have their own mission and vision to help spread the gospel.
The new Chairman, Rev. Nelson Ocloo in his acceptance speech expressed excitement to serve the Council and appreciated members for having confidence in them.
Rev. Ocloo pledged to work closely with the executives and members to project the vision of the Council and spread the gospel as they contribute to national development.
Ministers of God present prayed for them for more strength and anointing for service.
A love offering was taken for them to start the day to day administration at the zonal level.
