A nine-member executive committee of the Young People’s Guild of the Hope Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Sakumono-Estates, Tema has been inducted into office at a ceremony held on Sunday January 21,2018. They are Seko Fialor (President), Samuel Apeakrah (Vice President), Genevieve Amaniampong (Secretary), Stephanie Doku (Assistant Secretary).
The rest are David Mireku (Male Organiser), Romana Mensah (Female Organiser), Pascal Ayanu (Financial Secretary), Charlotte Atinyo (Treasurer) and Samuel Dukpo (Evangelism and Prayer Secretary).
Rev. Emmanuel Obeng Ntow, Sakumono District Minister of the PCG, inducted the Executives into office. He commended the outgoing leadership of the guild for their service to the church especially mobilising the youth for church work and encouraged the newly elected leaders to build on that by fishing out for young men and women in the congregation who are not yet members of the YPG.
He urged the old executives, who have not reached the YAF age group to continue to serve as members of the YPG and work in a concerted manner towards building a strong youth group in the church. Rev Ntow also advised the new leadership to realise that they have been called by God to serve and therefore execute their roles and responsibilities diligently.
“You need to fish out the youth and organise the YPG into a formidable team that will help the church. Take up this challenge and God be your helper, ” Rev Ntow admonished the new executives.
The Young People’s Guild is the youth wing of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and consists of members from ages 18 to 30 years. The ministry to this peculiar group is aimed at guiding them to remember their creator in their youthful days as contained in Ecclesiastes 11:2-10 and nurturing them to direct their strength to the worship of God.
Capacity building is consciously done by the Church at this stage. Their activities include Bible study, prayer, symposiums on issues such as career guidance, preparation for marriage, among other topics. The Motto of the Guild is “Knowing His will and to do it”
Greeting: Y, Response: PG. If one goes further to say “YPG” then the response is ” Service all the way”.
