The founder of Solid Rock Chapel International, Rev Dr Christie Doe-Tetteh, has acknowledged the giant strides women were making to work in areas that were hitherto reserved for only men.
She said it was not common in the olden days to see lady pastors, who dedicated their lives to God’s work.
She said all hardworking women, who allowed God to define and refine their lives, were capable of performing daunting tasks in life.
Rev Dr Christie Doe-Tetteh made these remarks last Saturday when she preached the sermon during the Apostolic Ordination Service for Prophetess Felicia Ama Acheampong, Founder and General Overseer of the Aroma of Christ and Prophetic Ministry.
The ordination service was performed by a College of Bishops and Apostles, led by Rt Rev. Dr Nana Anyani Boadum, the Founder and General Overseer of the Jesus Generation Worldwide Church.
Other members of the ordination team, were Rev Dr Samuel Bentil, Grace International Christian Centre, Rev Dr Thomas Ohenebena, New Creation Baptist Church, Koforidua; Rt. Rev Dr Ahmed Quarshie; Free Methodist Church, Tema; Bishop Maurice Odei Asare; Abundant Life Family Chapel and Rev Dr Colleen Opoku Amuabeng; Precious Seed International.
The rest are Bishop Peter Osei Akoto; International Charismatic Church, Anyaa; Prophet Isaac Antoh; Conquerors Chapel International; Apostle Abraham Lamptey; Believers Home Chapel and Lady Rev Adelaide Heward-Mills.
Rev Dr Christie Doe-Tetteh said frontline ministry work is not an easy one especially for women, adding that, it was not all women that were called upon to carry such a heavy load.
She admonished the newly ordained Apostle not to allow her own prejudices to come between her and God.
“God has elevated you and you should therefore listen to him and focus on your assignment,” she said.
