Association of Methodist Men’s Fellowships Holds 28th AGM

executive 001The Accra Diocese Association of Men’s Fellowships has held its 28th Annual General Meeting in Accra at the Immanuel Methodist Church, East Airport.

In his welcome address, the Diocesan Chairman, Bro Bennet Quist-Awumee, explained the main thrust of the annual general meeting and also enumerated the achievements of the association during the preceding year.

Illustrating the theme of the 28th Annual General Meeting; “Witnessing to Christ: Becoming more truly men in the vineyard of the Lord”, the Methodist Bishop of Accra, Rt Rev Titus K. Awotwi Pratt, said “being in the vineyard of the Lord means we have been given an assignment or task which requires skills to execute.” He alluded to the call of Abraham, “a man prepared and ready to offer sacrifice, accept and obey his creator” and through these characteristics he was blessed by God.

Rt Rev Awotwi Pratt called on Christians who wish to be truly men in the Lord’s vineyard to be ready to stand for the truth. “Our Christian lives should be seen in the things we do,” he stressed. He added that, do be in the Lord’s vineyard, we should meet acceptable Christian living standard, extol our Christian identity and act according to the ways of the gospel.

Rt. Rev Titus Awotwi Pratt also noted that, as Christians, we should seek the wellbeing of our employees to ensure job security, see to the improvement of their working conditions as well as adding value to their standards of living.

Citations were presented to members of the Association of Men’s Fellowships for their immense contribution to the growth of the church and the association’s work.

At a thanksgiving service after the annual general meeting in Accra, at the Immanuel Methodist Church, East Airport, the new executive of the Accra Diocese Association of Men’s Fellowships were inducted into office.

The chaplain of the Accra Diocese of the association, Very Rev. Stephen K Owusu, who preached the sermon at the induction service called on the men to demonstrate their capabilities towards the work of God and not in the arms of women and in the number of bottles they could consume.
