THE Northern Ghana Union Mission (NOGH), the headquarters of Seventh-day Adventists in five regions in Ghana is poised to making good use of technology for development while working for the Lord.
To that effect, introduction of Biometric Time Machine to check on lateness and absenteeism of workers is still on table to be attended to.
The NOGH operates from Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Northern, Upper West, and Upper East Regions which constitute nine conferences and a mission.
There are about 17 workers at the NOGH who are expected to go through the new system and improve on their attendance to work.
It becomes a novelty as part of innovative strategies to increase growth at the union.
In an exclusive interview with GhanaSDA News, the Executive Secretary of the NOGH, Pastor Dr. Kwame Annor Boahen said times and seasons have changed and the NOGH as well as the entire church must live accustomed to the changed society.
He said while working noble efforts for the Lord it was important to ensure that workers exhibited punctuality, that’s by reporting to work on time and responding to work schedules at all times except otherwise.
The new system he anticipated, when introduced could come along with its own challenges and urged workers to be patient and bear with leadership of the Union.
“In this era of advancement in science and technology, the bible confirms knowledge shall increase and we as a church aimed at proclaiming the advent message of the Lord cannot live in isolation to modern ways of improving productivity. We need to embrace the biometric system for a positive direction”, he stated.
