The Assemblies of God Church in Brong Ahafo has organized a three days workshop for Pastors and Church leaders in in Sunyani.
The three days program is under the theme “The role of a Pastor or a Leader in evangelism, winning souls for Christ.”
Regional Suprintendent of A.G Brong Ahafo, Rev. John Felix Yeboah in an interview with this reporter said, “Today people has relax when it comes to evangelism and that call for us to organize this three (3) days training. Our aim is to plant 3,000 Churches in Ghana and you can’t start something if you don’t have any knowledge about it.”
“Everybody should know his/her responsibility, if you are a Christian, you should know that evangelism is not the responsibility of the Pastor alone, Christians should help in winning souls for Christ and the Pastors are there to nurture and teach the souls.”
He said there’s a purpose in God’s calling for each believer and the most important thing is evangelism.
According to him, A Pastor leads, feeds, nurtures, comforts, corrects and protects. “The Pastor’s goal is not to please the sheep, but to feed them, not to tickle their ears, but to nourish their souls. He is not to offer merely light snacks of spiritual milk, but the
substantial meat of biblical truth.”
Speaking on the current energy crisis in the country, Rev. John Felix Yeboah said the blame must stop and the engineers of V.R.A, E.C.G, Gridco and and all stakeholders should come together and find a lasting solution to the current problem.
“The ‘Dumsor’ has cause harm to almost all the churches in the country, sometimes you may be in the middle of church service and the lights off, so many church instruments has damage as a result of this power outages.”
“I suggest the engineers shoud not rely on hydro, but should think outside the box and convert solar and wind into energy.”
Dr. Rich Frazer of SOS International speaking at the workshop said every believer has been called to preach and share the word God.
“We are on the mission of God, So we need to work to sustain the mission of God.”
He called on Christians not to go to only those that need them, but to those that needed most.
“You and i has a responsibility to carry on, You have nothing to do but to save souls. It is not your business to preach so many times, and take care of this or that society; but to save as many souls as you can to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance.”
Rev. Francis Ohene Agyekum, District Pastor of A.G at Dormaa East entreated participants to build partnership in the ministry.
“Build partnership with trusted people, don’t depend on your annointing alone, don’t on what you’ve learned, don’t depend on what you know alone, seek something from somebody, because somebody may be of help to you.”
He charged Men of God to support themselves because they are all fighting for one goal and same objectives.
“Lets support ourselves, not even when things are not going well, intimes of diffculties, lets pray for one another and it will help us to stand firm.”
Pastor Francis Ohene Agyekum who was speaking on the topic “The Moment of Gethsamane” advised Christians to endeavour to seek the will of the father.
