Rt Rev Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, who performed the commissioning, said the fifteen ministers were made up of distinguished persons who had excelled tremendously in the gospel ministration from the Special Ministerial Training (SMT) at the Ramseyer Training Centre, Abetifi Kwahu.
He urged the new ministers to empower themselves as they begin the ministration of the gospel. He noted that it took only the invitation of the Holy Spirit to gain liberty and peace to pursue the task ahead, observing that the anointing of the Holy Spirit would set one apart as righteous and sacred and also confer on one spiritual authority .
The Moderator was assisted by the Clerk of the General Assembly Rev Dr Godwin Nii Noi Odonkor and some members of the General Assembly Council.
