The one-day General Assembly became necessary following the Church’s inability to hold it in August 2020 as planned due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the subsequent restrictions imposed on all public gatherings, including church activities.
Major highlights of the Assembly would include Opening Devotion, Opening Ceremony by the Moderator of the General Assembly of the PCG, Rt. Rev. Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante which will include his address to the Assembly, report by the Clerk of General Assembly, Rev. Dr. Godwin Nii Noi Odonkor, presentation of the Church’s 2021 budget, and Prayer Sessions.
The Senior Minister, Hon. Yaw Osafo Maafo is expected to represent the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as Special Guest of Honour.
The General Assembly will review activities of the Church in the previous year, plan for the ensuing year, and serve as a platform for fellowship, interactions and networking among Commissioners and Corresponding Members.
The 20th General Assembly will also take decisions that will guide the activities of the Church in subsequent years.
Members of the PCG and the entire Christian Community are kindly urged to pray for the success of the 20th General Assembly 2020.
