Ghana Baptist Convention honours past leaders
The Ghana Baptist Convention held a send-off service for Reverend Dr Stephen K. Asante and Reverend Dr Nii Amoo Darku, former President and Vice President last weekend.
Other Executive Committee Members of the Church were part of the send-off.
Rev Ernest Adu-Gyamfi and Rev Enoch Thompson will succeed the outgoing President and Vice President respectively.
The ceremony was held amid singing and dancing by the members of the Convention, especially members of the Baptist Churches in Kumasi.
Rev Adu-Gyamfi said it was important that the Convention celebrated the goodness of the Lord for making the former leaders available to serve his purposes in their time.
“As we send you off, we are not in any way discarding you, we take courage in the conviction that the Lord is with you and that he will be with us also”.
He said the current leaders will continue to tap into the rich resources of skills, knowledge, experience, and dedication of the former leader.
He prayed for good health and also wished them success in their current and future ministries and divine assignments.
Rev Dr Asante advised the in-coming leaders to be disciplined saying that would bring sanity into the administrative management of the Convention.
Rev. Dr Fred Deegbe, Chairman, Ghana Baptist Convention Denominational Board, expressed satisfaction with the good work of the outgoing leaders and prayed for God’s guidance and protection for past, current, and future leaders of the Convention.
The Executive Committee members of the Convention expressed their sincere appreciation to the leaders for the service rendered to the Convention and thanked God for their lives.
