CENTRAL Ghana Conference (CGC) under the auspices of the Northern Ghana Union Mission (NOGH) of the Seventh-day Adventists has ordained two Pastors to officially join the gospel ministry of the church.
The CGC also used the occasion to climax its church leaders retreat at the Adventist Girls Senior High School, Ntonso in the Kwabre East District in the Ashanti Region.
It was on the theme: “Forward In the Spirit of the Pioneers” as CGC President, Pastor Yaw Asamoah Kwarteng led the retreat and presented the two ordinands – Pastors Denis Wireko and Michael Konadu Donkor – to the congregation.
Pastor Wireko is blessed with a wife, Victoria Wireko and three children equalling family number with Pastor Konadu Donkor who is also blessed with a wife, Hilda Dwamena Boateng and three children.
Both are Tanoso and Nkawie/Toase District Pastors and have won 592 souls.
After the ordination prayers were said by Pastor Dr. Felix Yaw Adu Gyamfi, the President of the NOGH, Pastor Dr. Kwame Kwanin Boakye and the Executive Secretary, Pastor Dr. Kwame Annor Boahen charged and welcomed the ordained Pastors.
Pastor Kwanin Boakye emphasised that the ordained pastors be motivated and guided by the word of God only.
He quoted 2 Timothy 3:17 to buttress his point, saying “the man of God will be equipped by the word”.
He said in much as the Pastors were to be shepherds of the Lord’s flock and sought to revive evangelistic activities of the church, it behoved the congregation to accord them with the necessary support.
The former Vice Chancellor of the Adventist University of Africa, Kenya, Pastor Prof. Brempong Owusu-Antwi in his sermon urged the ordained ministers to build a wall between righteousness and sin.
He said the ordained ministers and church leaders should never relent in their efforts to influence evangelism of the church a great deal, saying such was what the Lord required of them.
