After several unsuccessful attempts by some men of the church to come together to form the Men’s Fellowship in line with the statutory demands of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, the Executive members of Prince of Peace Presbyterian Church visited Hope Congregation on 19th May 1991 and tasked Bros. Ernest Armah, E. Ashiley and a few others to organize the men of the church to form the fellowship.
By dint of hard work and with the cooperation of the Prince of Peace Men’s Fellowship, they managed to secure all the study material on Men’s Fellowship and after a series of meetings of this new group, the constitution of the fellowship was approved and adopted on 27th March 1992. The fellowship was consequently inaugurated on 15th August 1992, and a certificate of registration was signed for the fellowship by the National Executive on 13th June 1994.
As at the time of inauguration, membership of the fellowship stood at 28 with the following as the first executive officers: Bros. Edward Ashiley (President), Eric Ofori-Nyarko (Secretary), Kwabena Otu-Danquah (Asst. Secretary), Edwin Adjei (Financial Secretary), Ernest Armah (Organizing Secretary), Samuel Mante-Akrofi (Asst. Org. Sec.), Michael Ansah (Music Director). By the grace of God, the fellowship continues to grow year after year and currently, total membership stands at about 140 with about 50 of them being very active.
- To foster strong, healthy and brotherly relationship amongst members.
- To help meet the spiritual and material needs of members.
- To rally round and support members in times of hardships and celebration of memorable events.
- To encourage all men in Hope Congregation to join the Men’s Fellowship.
The group meets every Monday from 7:00pm to 8:30pm.
