Agona Swedru (C/R), Aug. 9, GNA - The Western Presbytery of the Young People's Guild (YPG) of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, has celebrated its 30th Anniversary with a youth convention organized to give thanks to God.
The four-day convention which took place at the Enchi College of Education under the theme; “Celebrating Christ; our focus for the mission”, saw the gathering of members of the guild, drawn from the various districts within the Presbytery.
Reverend Joshua Asare, the Enchi District Minister on behalf of the Western Presbytery Chairperson, in sermon charged the youth to glorify God and also to realise the need to empower themselves through prayer and fasting.
He said glorifying God was a means to destroy the works of the enemy according to the Bible.
He admonished the youth to be good examples to the world by living lives that glorified God and attracted others to his kingdom.
Other men of God took turns to preach to the congregation about the need to focus on winning souls for Christ.
The celebration also brought together members of the clergy from the Presbyterian Church and representatives of other Churches as well as dignitaries from local banks and institutions in the area.
The Western Presbytery YPG was established in 1988 as the Regional arm of the parent YPG body covering some areas in the Central and Western Regions.
Its aim is to bring together the youth of the Presbyterian Church in the area and make them ambassadors of Christ Jesus.
