Dzodze (V/R), Aug.
31, GNA – Hundreds of spiritual and charismatic church delegates are attending
a three-day international conference ‘2016’ for religious ministers, from
Tuesday through Thursday, at Dzodze in the Ketu North District.
The delegates arriving from Togo, Benin and Cote D’Ivoire are attending the conference on the theme: “Knowing and Developing your Spiritual Identity”.
It would be organized by the Headquarters of Power Mission Church International (PMCI) at the Dzodze – Penyi Senior High School.
Apostle-General Emmanuel Astiko, Leader and General Overseer of PMCI, in an interview with Ghana News Agency (GNA), said: “It is rewarding to always be in the presence of God”, since it is in His presence that one could find direction.
He said: “Christians should commit themselves to national development and be law abiding.
Apostle-General Astiko asked for God’s guidance for the pursuit of policies that would lead to the growth and development of the country and asked the clergy and ministers of state to endeavour to be role models by living lives as enshrined in the bible and the constitution.
The Leader and General Overseer said corruption when condoned could result in low productivity, scare investors and undermine the rule of law and good governance.
He called on Ghanaians to report cases of corruption to the law enforcement agencies for appropriate action to be taken, because bribery, nepotism, embezzlement and fraud are prevalent in the society.
Bishop Andrew Kwaku Dirisu said without the truth, it would be difficult for the nation to have a decent livelihood and urged pastors not only to commit themselves to church activities, but also to national development.
He said the Power Mission Church International remains committed in partnering with the Ketu North District to ensure that the lives of the youth are improved.
