The Gethsemane Bible and Leadership Training Institute in Accra has held its maiden graduation during which 14 trainees graduated from the school.
It was established a year ago with the aim of equipping pastors and church workers with theological knowledge and leadership skills.
Reverend Thomas Larbi, President of the Institute, addressing the graduation ceremony, expressed the school’s commitment to deliver quality leadership knowledge to enable graduates to operate effectively in various fields of endeavour including church administration and ministry.
“Our curriculum is designed to meet necessary ministerial needs and impact knowledge and training with the aim of bringing out the best from the student,” he said.
On their expansion plans, Rev. Larbi said the school was making efforts to secure a property with more classrooms to enable it to admit more students.
In addition, he said there were plans to introduce ICT, music and theatre programmes as part of efforts to offer students a holistic training.
“The school does not only admit the literate, but also those who cannot read and write and yet possess the desire to acquire knowledge and skill for their call in ministry and service to the nation,” he said.
He thanked all partners for the support, but called for more assistance especially in the area of logistics and infrastructure.
He congratulated the graduands for the achievement and urged them to effectively use the knowledge gained to support their respective organisations, churches and communities.
