Peace be unto you.
The attention of the leadership of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has been drawn to an online publication on [amaghanaonline.com] dated January 28, 2024, with the headline “Ghanaian Presby Pastor Sampson Afoakwa jailed in Canada for defiling church member’s 13-year-old girl.” This headline is ambiguously connecting the said allegedly convicted Pastor to the Presbyterian Church of Ghana.
Although the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) has Congregations in Canada, it must be noted that the said allegedly convicted Pastor is a Minister of the Presbyterian Church of Canada (PCC) which is a different legal entity from the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG).
The Presbyterian Church Ghana continues to hold fast to its core values of discipline, hard work, integrity, humility, unity, and moral principles, among others. It is our prayer that the word of God affects all aspects of the lives of Church members and Church leaders in the body of Christ.
