The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana the Rt Rev Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante took his visitation to three Presbyteries namely Danmge Tongu, Central and West Akyem.
The visit forms part of the Moderator’s commitment to deepen grassroots participation in his administration and to also obtain first-hand information from the people.
Wherever the Moderator visited, hundreds of church members gave him a rousing. Church members in the PCG paraphernalia, amid drumming, singing and dancing struggled to catch a glimpse of the Moderator or shake hands with him.
Addressing the gatherings at the various Presbyteries, the Moderator touched on three aspects of witness which included Spiritual Witness, Moral Witness and Social Witness.
He urged agents of the Church to ensure that church members who come to worship God especially on Sundays get ample time to worship through singing, worship and praying.
“True Presbyterian worship that is Christ Centered. More singing and more worship with focus on youth and children.”
The Moderator informed the gatherings that, in recent times the current form of assessment of the church had become an albatross on the majority of congregations and therefore hinted of introducing a new form of assessment in the form of percentage.
He urged agents of the Church to support it when the General Assembly accepted this year.
At Dangme Tongu Presbytery, the Moderator visited Krobo Odumase Presbyterian Girls Senior High School where he addressed the students. He advised the students to take their education seriously and tasked them to desist from indulging in disrespectful acts and be disciplined in all their endeavours.
