The Global Evangelical Church (GEC) has received a four member delegation from the United States of America led by Reverend Mrs Pamela McLaughlin, wife of the founder of Mount Olivet Baptist Church, Virginia, USA.
Other Members of her team were Rev Valani Harris, the Director of Ministries of the Church, Pastor Karen Dones of the Greater Smith Temple and Mummy Gladys Werts, an elder of the Church.
The all female team was met on arrival by Rev Prosper Dzomeku, the Director in charge of Missions and Evangelism of the Global Evangelical Church.
The team, which was in the country from May 30 to June 7, held several church activities with some branches of the GEC in Ho and Sogakope.
They also organized special sessions with the Accra and Tema Presbytery Women’s Ministries.
Rev Mrs McLaughlin and her team also held a closed door meeting with the Synod Committee Executive of the GEC and also a seminar for church leaders.
She expressed her gratitude to God, the leadership of the GEC and the entire membership of the Church, for the success of the trip and the warm reception given to them.
Rev Dzomeku, on behalf of the GEC, conveyed the Church’s appreciation to the team for their periodic visits which go a long way not only to encourage but to strengthen the existing ties between the two churches.
Rev Pamela McLaughlin is the wife of Rev Wesley McLaughlin, the founder of Mount Olivet Baptist Church, Virginia, USA. She is currently the Director of Christian Education, Women’s Ministry and Performing Arts of the Church.
Her relationship with the Global Evangelical Church dates back to 2004 during the administration of the Very Rev Dr Emmanuel Komla Gbordzoe, a former Moderator of the GEC.
The couple were instrumental in the building of the Awate Todzi GEC chapel.
Rev Mrs McLaughlin has established special working relationship with the Ho-Fiave congregation where she plans to undertake education-related projects.
Whenever she is in the country, she meets with the Women’s Ministry in various congregations to encourage them as well as fellowship with selected congregations.
The team has since left the country.
