The Church of Pentecost, James McKeown Worship Centre (JMWC), Korle Gonno in the Dansoman Area on Sunday, 25th April, 2021 inaugurated a new Ga Assembly and ordained new Officers at the Church Auditorium.
The inauguration and ordination ceremony were undertaken by the Area Head of Dansoman, Prophet Ebenezer Kofi Appiah during the Climax of the church’s week-long revival with the Area Head dubbed “Prophetic Encounter with the Area Head”.
Opening the ceremony, the Resident Minister of the Church, Rev. (Dr.) Perez Sepenu informed members that the vision for opening the dedicated Ga Assembly is to build an Assembly that is culturally relevant and to meet the spiritual, physical, social and psychological needs of the indigenous Ga population within the catchment area of the Church. This he said is in line with the overarching vision of the Church of Pentecost which is to become a global Pentecostal Church that is culturally relevant through vibrant evangelism, strategic church planting, discipleship and holistic ministry.
