National Director’s Consultative Meeting with all Heads of Churches and Ministers in Nkawkaw and its Environ
The Ghana Evangelism Committee on Thursday 23rd November 2023 held a consultative meeting with heads of churches and all ministers in Nkawkaw and its environment. This is an initiative of the National Director as part of the strategic approach for the successful implementation of the vision 2027 of the GEC.
The meeting was chaired by the Nkawkaw Area Head of the Church of Pentecost, Prophet Foster Kwasi Aniakwaa, who is also the GPCC zonal chairman. In attendance were some GPCC executive members, all ministers of the Church of Pentecost in the area, officers of the Church, and others adding up to over 246 participants.
Prophet Aniakwaa exhorted the participants of the urgency of the great commission and the intentional approach of the Church to reach the unreached. He encouraged them to fully participate in the conversation and make contributions when needed.
The National Director of the Ghana Evangelism Committee, Rev. Bright Nyamedor took the participants present through 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 focal areas of GEC.
Rev. Nyamedor briefed the participants on the works of the GEC for the past 49 years, established in 1974, and the quest to rebrand the GEC to effectively play the catalyst role in the three core mandates of GEC which are Mission Research, Evangelism, and Discipleship to the Churches in Ghana.
The National Director was also privileged to present the analysis of 2021 census data and its implications for the Ghanaian Church. The objective was to analyze the census and provide information for the leaders of the churches to make Church-planting decisions, to help the church prioritize areas of greatest need and urgent to the Church’s mandate, and also to set a clear direction for the Ghanaian church for the next ten years when another census is conducted.
As directed by the host minister, Prophet Aniakwaa, the participants held hands in unity to pray earnestly for the church and the Nation as a whole. Prayers were also said for grace to the National Director and his wife for the responsibility assigned to them.
On behalf of the Steering Committee Rev. Bright Nyamedor extended his gratitude to Prophet Foster Aniakwaa, the Area Head, Church of Pentecost Nkawkaw, and GPCC Chairman for their logistical support and warm reception, and all heads of Churches and ministers.
