New Life Bible College (NLBC) held its 14th graduation ceremony over the weekend at Dumasu near Sunyani.

In all, 23 pastors comprising three women graduated with Diploma in Theology, Biblical Studies, and Executive Certificate in Leadership, Church Planting Ministry and School of the Prophetic Ministry after two-year study.

Principal of New Life Bible College (NLBC), Rev Maxwell Kwasi Sarpong, called on the new ordained pastors to rely solely on God in all their endeavours and not follow what other men of God are doing which is tarnishing the image of Christianity.

He also charged Christians to invest in the work of God.

Outlining some of the challenges facing NLBC, Rev Sarpong mentioned the lack of finance, transportation and access to internet.

He therefore called on all to support the College.

For his part, the Founder of New Life Bible College, Dr Bishop David Donkor, called on parents to give their children the needed education, which will give them knowledge and help them to identify themselves.

Dr Bishop Donkor also called on graduates in the country to start doing something on their own with the knowledge they have acquired and not rely solely on government for jobs.

Krontihene of Sunyani, Dr Nana Bofotia Boamposim II, also used the occasion to condemn attitudes of some Christians in the Sunyani traditional area who always invoke curses upon the slightest provocation.

According to him, about 95% of the cases settled by the Sunyani Traditional Council (STC) are curse-related ones and people involved are mostly Christians.

This, he stressed, it is a bad practice and must stop.

“The life of Christians must be an example which will bring people closer to Jesus Christ, but it is worrying that some Christians would be invoking curses upon a little provocation. This is very bad and must stop,” Dr Nana Boamposim II advised
