Dr McWilson Atakro, the West Volta Presbytery Synod Moderator of the Evangelical Presbyterian (E.P) Church, Ghana has called on Presbyters to help build the Church of Christ.
He said they should not only help build the E.P Church, Ghana but also support in the propagation of the great commission.
Dr Atakro was speaking at the consecration of 14 Presbyters of the E.P Church , Ghana, Kaneshie District in Accra.
The presbyters from the Seraphim Congregation include: Dzifa Abra Azumah, Bridget Seyram Diapim, Diana Ampah, Paulina Olivia Adowa Vondee- Anokwafo, Cate Joycelyn Akosua Honu, Alfred Agbesi Aniabre, Albert J.E.K Adoh, Peter Kwasi Fiamor, Frederick Attah Kumah Kodzo Manteaw and Wisdom Kofi Hiamabe.
The presbyters from the Nsakina Congregation include: Caroline Atakey, Florence Kweku Agblenu, Evans Makafui Komla Kwashie and Victor Innocent Komla Tsao.
The presbyters were taken through the fundamentals of the Church; history, constitution, doctrines and administrative structures.
They were also taken through sacraments, the liturgy, fasting and prayers, faith and preparation of sermon.
The West Volta Presbytery Synod Moderator urged the new Presbyters to be hospitable, kind to members, be respectable, gentle and approachable.
Dr Atakro said the presbyters must assist their pastors at all times to build and grow the congregation spiritually.
He said the unity of the Church should be of higher priority to the new presbyters, adding that blaming one another would not help promote the interest of the Church.
“We are to work together as a family to raise the image of the Church,” he said.
Dr Atakro called on government to reconsider the decision to take out Religious and Moral Education from the Ghana Education Service’s curriculum because it would not augur well for the country.
He said Religious and Moral Education has helped and would continue to help the building of morally right individuals in the country and taking it out would be detrimental to the nation.
