SEVENTH-day Adventists at Bantama in Kumasi in the Mid-Central Ghana Conference (MICG) last Saturday launched their Radio Evangelism Fund as part of activities to celebrate Media Evangelism Day.
The fund is believed to serve as a special account to financially enable the church afford radio airtime for evangelism to share the Three Angels’ Messages to the world.
It took the combined efforts of both the Communication Department and Personal Ministries of the church to make the celebration a memorable one.
The church took turns to use the occasion to also promote upcoming celebration of Global Youth Day and Youth Week of Prayer.
Launching the fund during Sermon time, popular media practitioner and Vice President of the Society of Adventists in Media, Ghana (SAM), Mr Collins Amo Poku better known in media circles as “DJ Tofeakwa” charged Seventh-day Adventists who seem to be sleeping on performing their evangelism role to wake up.
Quoting from Ellen G. White’s Evangelism page 105, he said it was necessary that as a church “we take every justifiable means to bringing the light before the people”.
He was of the firm belief that by utilising the press and advertising agencies, there would be justification “to call attention to the work”.
“Means will be devised to reach hearts. Some of the methods used in this work will be different from the methods used in the work in the past”, he further quoted this time from page 88 of the Church Manual, 19th Edition, Revised 2015 to buttress his point.
He however, pledged the support of the SAM for the church in joining forces to evangelise for the Lord.
Before the launch, Church Pastor who doubles as the Communication/Publishing/ Public Affairs/Religious Liberty Director of the MICG, Alexander Marfoh had emphasised the need to use available means to evangelise.
He announced that as the church advanced in tune to the intricacies of modern worship, the church would soon be inaugurating and dedicating its baptistery to the glorification of the Lord.
Elder in charge of Communication, Frank Kwadwo Boateng commended both communication department and personal ministries for their efforts to aid in the advancement of God’s cause.
