Graduands

THE PRINCIPAL of Garden of Eden Bible College, Rev Dr Eric Akli, has appealed to government to break away from the partisan barrier which can derail the progress of the nation and rather focus on appointing experienced people to steer the affairs of the nation.

Rev Dr Akli made the appeal in his welcome address during the fourth graduation and ordination ceremony of the Garden of Eden Bible College at the auditorium of God?s Tabernacle of Praise at Madina, last Saturday, November 30, 2013.

Twelve students of the college graduated, 11 received diplomas while one student received a degree.

The theme for the ceremony was: ?Impacting the society as a Christian leader?.

He indicated that the college was founded in August 2009 with the sole function of nurturing converts who had been called to the five fold ministry of Jesus Christ as well as equipping them for work of evangelism.

The principal continued that the college also offers certificates, diplomas and degree programmes and is affiliated to the Pan-African Bible Seminary.

The Guest Speaker, Bishop Stephen Offeh of Flames of Victory, urged the new pastors to live their lives worthy of emulation and desist from indulging in extravagancy.

He added, ?Riding in a sophisticated car or staying in a first class residential area has nothing to do with ones anointing.?

The Student Representative President (SRC)of the Garden Of Eden Bible College, Ms Peace Addy,  expressed worry about the fast-fading image of pastors and appealed that the new breed of pastorage should sit up to the challenge to regain  their lost image.

The overall best student, Adjetey Jonathan, called on both the clergy and members of the Christian community to show more commitment and exhibit Christian practices even outside of the church.

He charged Christians to show more love to the less-privileged ones in society.
