GPCC Pays Tribute to Late Apostle Ntumy

The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has expressed heartfelt appreciation for the indelible contributions made by Apostle Dr Michael Kwabena Ntumy, the former President of the Council. Apostle Ntumy, who passed away on December 27, 2023, served as the President of the GPCC from 1998 to 2008, leaving an enduring legacy of dynamism and rejuvenation within the largest ecumenical body in Ghana.

During the memorial and burial service held on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at the Forecourt of the State House, Accra, the GPCC commemorated Apostle Ntumy’s visionary leadership, acknowledging the positive impact he brought to the Council. The tribute highlighted how his presidency welcomed numerous independent churches into the GPCC, fostering a spirit of unity and collaboration.

The GPCC tribute stated, “His election as President brought dynamism and freshness to the Council, which translated into many independent churches joining the fold of the Council.”

Apostle Ntumy’s exceptional commitment to the unity of churches in Ghana and his extraordinary passion for the Kingdom’s cause were underscored by the GPCC. The tribute recognized him as a visionary leader who initiated constitutional reforms, allowing Charismatic Church leaders to be elected as one of the Vice Presidents. Additionally, Apostle Ntumy played a crucial role in securing a plot of land at East Legon, now housing the National Secretariat of the Council.

The GPCC described Apostle Ntumy as a caring and selfless leader who prioritized the welfare and progress of his colleagues, subordinates, and their families. Despite his busy schedule as Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, he consistently attended events hosted by GPCC member churches, demonstrating his commitment to fostering relationships and unity.

Apostle Ntumy’s advocacy for the less privileged was highlighted by his service on the Ghana Aids Commission and his role as the National Patron of the Blind Teachers’ Association of Ghana.

The GPCC leadership extended sincere condolences to Lady Martha Ntumy, the children, and the wider family of The Church of Pentecost. The Council acknowledged and celebrated the profound impact Apostle Ntumy had on the ecumenical landscape, leaving a legacy that continues to shape the GPCC’s mission and vision.
