As part of the catalytic role and the ownership of the Evangelism Committee of Ghana to the Church’s, Para-Church Organisations, and the Ecumenical Councils, an Extraordinary General Meeting was held on Tuesday 19th December 2023 at the Wesley Towers in Accra Ghana.
The meeting brought together the Steering Committee of GEC, heads of Churches and Para-Church Organisations, Representatives from some Ecumenical Councils, and other passionate people for Evangelism.
The Newly appointed National Director was formally introduced to everyone present by the Chairman of the Steering Committee of GEC, Most Rev. Dr. Paul K. Boafo who doubles as the Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of Ghana.
The Director, Rev. Bright Nyamedor was privileged to present the vision 2027 of GEC with the theme ‘GHANA MUST GO’. He stated that over the next four years (2023 – 2027), Mission Research, Discipleship Building, Leadership Development, Evangelism, Strengthening of Ecumenical Unity, Administrative Structuring, Innovative Use of Information Technology (IT), and Financial Mobilization will represent the key areas that will occupy the attention of GEC.
The Director humbly reminded everyone present that GEC’s ownership is still the Churches and the mandate is to serve all the Christian faith community in Ghana and beyond.
He also assured them from the vision document that GEC is committed to conducting cutting-edge research into the needs of the Churches in Ghana and the gaps that have to be filled. On Discipleship, GEC in collaboration with her international partners is repositioned to provide tailored content materials, training, and any other support to the Churches.
Two sub-committees, Research and Media were inaugurated and members were inducted by the Steering Committee led by the vice chairman, Apostle Eric Nyamekye who doubles as the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost and the president of GPCC.
The vision document was to be scrutinized by the Churches, Para-Church Organisations, and the Ecumenical Councils for adoption at the Annual General Meeting in March 2024.
