Papa Ashley’s Chronicle

Rev Frederick Kotey Ashaley was posted to the Hope Congregation as a Probationer in September 2017 and took over from Rev Andrew Shadow as the second minister of the congregation.

He began his service at Hope Congregation as a third Minister and was assigned varied roles under the tutelage of the Minister in Charge, Rev Emmanuel Obeng Ntow. No sooner had he taken office than his dynamism and zeal for the vocation he had chosen began to show.

Having left a career in Finance to accede to the Lord’s call of service in his vineyard, the flair and passion be brought to the service bore testimony to a true calling.

Elevation

Not surprising, Rev Ashaley was elevated to the position of a Second Minister of the Hope Congregation in 2018, a year into his probationary service.

He filled the role with ease and vigor in his output. Rather than being overwhelmed by the volume of work that fell on his shoulders, Rev. Ashaley exuded dexterity and poise that came with the increased responsibilities.

After 12 years of distinguished service as Probationer, Rev Ashaley was ordained as a full-fledge minister of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, at the Emmanuel Congregation, Dansoman in June 2019.

His diligence, humility, selflessness, commitment came through every task that he was assigned. From acting as a Minister in Charge occasionally, chairing meeting of session, presiding over standing committees of session, providing pastoral care to distressed and infirmed congregants and driving the spiritual growth of congregants and the congregation itself, Rev. Ashaley has been outstanding.

Roles

Among the many services he has rendered to the congregation are serving as an overseer of the EMEFS Preaching Point, Director of Evangelism, Coordinator of the Prayer Tower, launch and Produced the Daily Devotional Guide, -“ Daily Words of Hope”, Coordinator of the Congregational Bible Studies, coordinator of the Discipleship Training, the Friday Midday Online Prayer, Youth Minister f both the Hope Congregation and the Sakumono District, Coordinator of the Invalid and Communion Administration, Chaplin of the Boys and Girls Brigade, Caretaker Minister, Abundant Grace Congregation, Agent in-charge, Hope Congregation COVID-19 Containment Committee and in all these, Papa Ashaley has been phenomenal.

He has exemplified effective Christian leadership in every aspect of his service to the congregation. He took on a servant position and embrace the changing scene of his three-year service very graciously.

He demonstrated believe in the word he preached by inspiring resilience in the face of difficulties brought on by the frailties of men.

We give glory to God for blessing the Hope Congregation with such a versatile member of his ordained.

Rev Ashaley, as you leave us, we pray the God of heaven whom you have served so admirably to go with you. May His presence go before you to smoothen every rough path. May He elevate you and bring down every mountain before you and may his grace be sufficient for all that is ahead of you
