The Tema District Assemblies of God has officially sworn in a new set of executives and departmental representatives into office. The induction service, which took place at Central Assemblies of God Church in Community 4, Tema, was presided over by the outgoing District Pastor, Reverend Emmanuel Ofori.
The newly elected executives include Rev. Joseph Kojo Ahunya, who will serve as the elected Tema District Pastor, Rev. Joshua Agbodeka as District Secretary, and Rev. Desmond Anderson as the District Treasurer. Seven other departmental representatives were also inducted into service to support the new leadership.
Rev. Andrews Nelson Awintia, the Greater Accra East Regional Superintendent, delivered a sermon at the occasion, urging the new executives to make a difference by taking candid decisions, detaching themselves from the crowd, and relying solely on God throughout their tenure of office.
“The call to leadership is a call to higher responsibility, and the reason for the call is to make a difference,” he emphasized.
International evangelist, Rev. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, who was the guest of honour, encouraged the newly elected executives to walk in their calling and demonstrate leadership characteristics by upholding the ministry’s reputation.
“Don’t be distracted by your position. Stay focused and get your priorities right,” he advised.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, the Tema Regional Office; Rev. Ahunya expressed his vision to set up a fund to support the welfare of active and retired pastors within the district. He also highlighted his hope to unite, revive, and share love among the church members.
For the most part, the induction service marked a new beginning for the Tema District Assemblies of God. The new executives have been charged with the mantle of service to the Lord through shifting, growing, and transforming the church. As they take up their new roles, they are expected to lead with a strong sense of responsibility, make a difference, and prioritize the needs of the members.
