GHANAIANS have been advised to exhibit a high sense of responsibility and trustworthiness in their chosen professions in order to contribute to national development.
The Reverend Mawuli Dzidula Agudogo, Accra Presbytery Chairman of the Global Evangelical Church, gave the advice during a send-off service for the immediate past Presbytery Executives at the El-Shammah Chapel of the Church.
“Whatever your hands find to do, do it well and with all your abilities as unto the Lord. We need to remember that we are all but God’s stewards and the day of accountability will surely visit us one day,” he said.
The Accra Presbytery Chairman said, there was no need for workers to “cut corners” and use unacceptable means to accumulate wealth, rather, they should rely solely on God who is faithful in the provision of the needs of all”.
He commended the past executives for the immeasurable contributions, noting that their efforts had largely resulted in the purchase of a vehicle for the presbytery securing, fencing and starting the Oyibi project, among others.
Rev Agudogo pledged that the new executives would build on the solid foundations laid by the outgone executive.
“Within the next four years, we would also work towards obtaining our own office space while resourcing the Presbytery at all fronts”, he said.
Rev. Felix Mensah Agbo, the outgoing Presbytery Chairman, on behalf of his colleagues, expressed their heartfelt appreciation to the current leadership for the honour done them, and urged the new executive to be united to attain their goals.
The ceremony was attended by many evangelists, pastors, directors of the church, the Rector of the Global Theological Seminary, Rev. Dr. Christian Gbekor, and Rev. Emmanuel Barrigah, Director of Church Life and Nurture, who delivered the sermon of the day.
The past executive included Rev. F.M. Agbo, Chairman; Mr. Carl Fiati, Male Presbyter, Evangelist Helen Felicity Ametewee, Female Presbyter; Ebenezer Senyo Agbeko, Treasurer and Mrs. Elizabeth Hamenoo, Catechists’ Representatives.
