Pentecost University has begun a three-day retreat for its Management and Staff. This is the first in the year 2023, taking place on the University’s main campus in Sowutuom, Accra.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua who delivered the welcome address said the main reason for the retreat is for the staff body to show gratitude to God and rededicate themselves to the University for the year 2023. The VC commended them for their commitment in the year 2022 and urged them to do more this year. He said, “brothers and sisters, this is our first meeting in the year and I officially welcome you to the year 2023.” He added that “let me take this opportunity to commend you for the previous year and urge us to rededicate ourselves to the University for the year 2022” He concluded by exhorting the members to adopt hearts of gratitude to God and one another.
On his part, the Head of Ministerial Formation at the Pentecost School of Theology and Mission, Aps. Dr Christian Tsekpoe said the PU has become a solid University brand that we should be cherished. Dr Tsekpoe whose presentation was on the “PU Brand” described both tangible and intangible aspects of the brand that make it stand. He attributed the brand resoluteness to factors such as good governance within the University, determined staff, symbols that people want to associate with and the Pentecostal goodwill. Dr Tsekpoe said “the PU brand command respect in many places, which can be linked directly to the leadership, the reputation of staff, and strong publicity among others. He, therefore, challenged the staff to cherish the University’s brand and work hard to enhance it.
The Management and Staff Retreat is an important item on the Pentecost University’s calendar. It’s a period of intensive workshops, prayer and strategizing for the University A+ agenda.
