Great Commission Church commissions six new pastors

bnApostle Professor Samuel Asuming-Brempong, the Chairman, Great Commission Church International (GCCI) Ghana, has charged pastors to let their lips preserve knowledge.

He said pastors are the messengers of the Lord Almighty and people must seek instructions from them.

Apostle Asuming- Brempong was speaking at Madina in Accra at the weekend when he commissioned six new pastors for the work of the Christian ministry.

He told the pastors that they are entering the ministry at a time that the church universal is facing challenges.

The commissioned ministers include Reverends Paul Morgan-Adorsu, Prosper Gbeve, Alex Boakye-Yiadom, Dick Sam Ezu, Paul Kosi Odeitey and Samuel Arthur.

He urged them not to run away from problems, but to see them as an opportunity to excel to new and greater heights in the ministry.

Apostle Suming-Brempong admonished the ordained pastors not to lord it over the people but rather serve them, and to live good exemplary lives so as to win more souls for Christ.

Apostle Joseph Felix Kwesi Mensah, the Chairman, GCCI Apostolic Council, in his homily, urged Christians to be totally committed to the fulfilment of the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ; declaring that “be faithful even to the point of death”.

He said Christians must let the love and forgiveness of God reflect in their lives by loving their neighbours and forgiving all who have offended them.

He reminded the newly ordained pastors to be prayerful and to take their bible studies very seriously.

“Make sure this church will find you, people who have something to offer them,” Apostle Mensah said.

Rev Morgan-Adorsu on behalf of his colleagues expressed gratitude to the Church for the honour done them; stating that “we will live up to your expectation”.

GCCI was started in April 1991 on the campus of the University of Ghana, Legon, by seven founding ministers namely Apostles Mensah, Joseph Kwabena Antwi, Asuming-Brempong, Komla Ebenezer Hagan, Samuel Vincent Ansah, Derek Sarpong and Richard Kwami Adanu.
