The International Women’s Ministry Director of The Church of Pentecost, Mrs. Philomena Mireku has asked ladies of Pentecost University to support the Vision 2023 of the Church. She made the call during a working visit to the University on Wednesday 17th March 2021. The visit was the first time that a ministry director of the Church has paid a working visit to the University.
According to Mrs. Mireku, the purpose of her visit was to share the mandate and new vision of the Women’s Ministry with female staff (Pentvars Ladies Club) and students of the University as well as to solicit their support.
Referencing Titus 1:2-3, she said the Vision 2023 and the Constitution of The Church of Pentecost have put a magnanimous and clear mandate on the Women’s Ministry; to play a strategic role in the welfare and spiritual growth of women, children, and the whole Church. This she said “calls for a broader collaboration with stakeholders like Pentecost University.”
She also shared aspects of the draft new vision document of her Ministry with the highlight on seven “Strategic Priorities;” one of which is “to facilitate the economic empowerment of women and young ladies in the Church, especially in deprived areas.”
She, therefore, asked for inputs from members of the Pentvars Ladies to improve the vision document. She said, “Pentecost University being the intellectual wing of the Church, you understand the pressing issues of young women, children, and the Church; we, therefore, implore you to study the draft vision document and contribute to its development.”
The Women’s Director who was accompanied by her deputy Mrs. Vivian Amfoh also donated an amount of ten thousand Ghana cedis (GHS 10,000) to the Church of Pentecost Chairman Education Foundation (COPCEF).
Commenting on the meeting, the president of Pentvars Ladies Club, Mrs. Lydia Andoh-Quainoo described the visit as both honorable and progressive”. She said, “this is the first time a woman of her standing in the Church visited and sought our ideas for the ministry. So, I think it is both an honor to us and a progressive move by the director.” On her part, the Head of Department of Nursing and Midwifery assured Mrs. Mireku that the ladies at Pentecost University will study the document intellectually and contribute to it.”
The Registrar of the University Mr. Amoani thanked the women leaders for their visit on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor. He assured them that the University and its experts are available to contribute in any means possible to the new vision of the Women’s Ministry and the general improvement of women.
