The Moderator addressing the welcoming party mentioned that three (3) Presbyteries were selected by him for visits this year, starting from the Volta Presbytery. He spoke on the 2024 Ecclesiastical Theme of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana “Jesus Christ, the Alpha, and the Omega” anchoring on Isaiah 41:4; 44:6; 8:12. Delivering a pastoral message, “I am the first and the last” said Jesus. He assured congregants that the Lord has not left and He is not done with us. And that, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana is a prayerful Church and members must adhere to that. If people worship happily, the church will grow and our numerical target of two million by 2028 would be fulfilled. He indicated that currently, the PCG has a membership of over one million, three hundred and sixty (1,360,000). He exhorted that, all PCG members should hold fast to the Gospel and keep our fervent prayers.

He further talked about the Bicentenary Celebration of PCG and encouraged all to be actively part. He also informed members of the strategic goal of the church to grow more than 2,000,000 numerically by 2028 and also to plant 1,000 Congregations of which the Volta Presbytery is expected to plant not less than 30.

He also encouraged the Presbytery to think through the remissions from GAC, especially the percentage contribution.
