The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), representing over 31% of the Ghanaian population, has unveiled an ambitious Social Action program aimed at embodying the ideals of the Great Commission by contributing to the overall well-being of society.
As a Council committed to sharing Jesus’ concern for the poor and the oppressed, GPCC recognizes the importance of extending their impact beyond denominational levels.
The Council disclosed their plan during their last National Delegates Conference which brought together various Heads of Churches across the across the Country.
Addressing participants, the President of the Council, Apostle Eric Nyamekye said the provision of basic social services is deemed crucial in reflecting the love of Christ and promoting the values of the Kingdom.
According to Apostle Nyamekye, to maximize the impact of their initiatives, GPCC seeks to establish partnerships with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Government agencies, adding that these collaborations would facilitate the undertaking of projects that bring tangible benefits to communities, emphasizing a unified effort towards social transformation.
“GPCC will sensitize its respective regions to mobilize resources for targeted social service interventions during GPCC weeks. This coordinated effort will harness the collective strength of member churches to address specific needs within their regions, ensuring a widespread and meaningful impact,”- he pointed out.
The Social Action program is a testament to GPCC’s commitment to fulfilling the Great Commission beyond spiritual realms, actively contributing to the transformation of society. By integrating social services into their mission, GPCC seeks to exemplify the love of Christ in tangible ways and positively impact the lives of the less privileged. The program aligns seamlessly with the Council’s vision for holistic community development and empowerment.
