Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council Gathers for Annual Conference with a Focus on Peace and Transformation

The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has brought together leaders, general secretaries, and regional leaders across the country for its annual Conference of Heads of Churches.

This year’s conference, held at the Pentecost Convention Centre in Gomoa Fetteh, is themed “The Church: God’s Instrument for Peace and Transformation.”

Apostle Immanuel Tettey, the General Secretary of the GPCC, explained the choice of theme in light of the upcoming general elections. “We chose this theme essentially because we are in the year of general elections, and the church is God’s instrument for peace,” Apostle Tettey stated. He emphasized the biblical association of Jesus Christ as the Prince of Peace and quoted a powerful declaration regarding the peace of God that surpasses human understanding.

Transformation of Lives

Speaking about the transformative role of the church, Apostle Tettey noted, “The church is God’s instrument for the transformation of lives and nations.” This acknowledgment forms the core of the chosen theme for this year’s conference.

When questioned about the continuity of such conferences in the future, Apostle Tettey expressed optimism. “In the coming years, if Christ arises and we are still in this life, we’re going to have relevant things,” he affirmed. He highlighted the inclusion of renowned figures, both within and outside the Christian fraternity, who bring valuable insights to benefit the nation.

This year’s conference has already featured diverse speakers, including Prof. Stephen Addei, not an ordained minister but recognized for his knowledge and dedication to the word of God. Additionally, representatives from the Office of the Special Prosecutor engaged with participants, promising a session of great significance.

Apostle Tettey concluded by mentioning Reverend Dr. Kwabena Opuni Frimpong, who addressed the role of the church in peaceful elections, leaving a powerful impact on the attendees. He assured that future conferences would continue to host equally influential ministers and speakers, fostering an environment of spiritual enrichment, knowledge transfer, and national development.
