2013 NOVEMBER HEADS' MEETING ENDS AT PENTECOST CONVENTION CENTRE
This year’s November Heads’ Prayer meetings has ended successfully with the leadership of the church charged to go and impact the generations. The Executive Council, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Area/National Heads, and Ministry Directors prayer session popularly called "November Heads Meeting” was held from Monday 11th to Friday 15th November, 2013 at the Pentecost Convention Centre - Gomoa Fetteh. The theme for 2014 which was one of the main subjects for discussion is “Fanning the Pentecostal Fire to impact generations” (2 Tim. 1:5-6).
These conferences are usually organised in November to strategise for the coming year through fasting, prayers and sharing of the word and waiting upon God.
During this annual time with God, the theme for the ensuing year is shared, deliberated upon and prayed about. In-depth teachings are made and prayers are offered for the Church, individuals, the nations and all pressing and topical issues.
Traditionally, only Heads in Ghana and some Heads in the West African Sub-Region attends the conference but this year's conference was quite extraordinary in the sense that, the core leadership of the Church across the world, all Head Office Ministers and other functionaries in the Church were invited to the programme. This was because, the five year vision for the Church of Pentecost, covering the period 2013-2018 was deliberated upon. The Chairman of the Church, Apostle Dr. Opoku Onyinah, said "we thought it would be appropriate to invite all of you to join us discuss the vision that the Lord has placed on our hearts. We expect to hear the voice of the Lord through our corporate conversation on this document”.
In his welcome address, Apostle Dr. Opoku Onyinah, extended a special welcome to delegates from all the External branches of the church, Invited Ministers' Wives, some Retired heads, Headquarters Ministers, Pentecost University College (PUC) and Pentecost Theological Seminary (PTS) lectures, Directors, Finance Board Chairman and all the invited guest. He extended the right hand of fellowship to the leadership of Eglise Pentecote du Togo, the other Togolese group of the Church. They were invited to join the leadership of the Church to have this special time with the Lord.
The atmosphere at the 500-seater auditorium of the Pentecost Convention Centre, the venue for the conference was ecstatic. There were times of spontaneous praises and worship. There were frank discussions on the five year vision document and on issues of concern. Workshops, which aimed at finding the best approach to implementing the vision document was organised. Led by the Rector of the Pentecost University College, Pastor Dr. Peter Ohene-Kyei, participants were put into various groups to discuss various sections of the vision document.
Speakers at the conference included the Chairman, Apostle Dr. Opoku Onyinah, Apostles Ekow Badu Woode, Albert Amoah, Dr. S. K. Baidoo, Agyemang-Baduh, Prophet James Osei Amaniampong and Proffesor Stephen Adei.
Participants left the conference fully charged to implement the vision God has given and to move the Church forward.
