The Vice-Chancellor of Pentecost University wooed the support of Ministers and Wives of The Church of Pentecost for the new phase of the University. Prof. Agyapong-Kodua made the appeal during his presentation at this year’s Global Ministers and Wives Conference of the Church at the Pentecost Convention Centre which ended on 28th January 2022.
In the address which centred on activities of the Pentecost School of Theology and Mission (PSTM), the VC reiterated the unique position of the University in the Church’s future. He outlined the various interventions the University is doing to support the Church’s Vision 2023 and expansion. Some of which he said included the training of over 8000 Elders of the Church; training and graduation of 450 Ministers’ wives; enrolment of 442 CoP Ministers in their BA Theology programme; and the ongoing training of 127 fresh ministers of CoP. These, Prof. Agyapong-Kodua said, will go a long way to equip them for maximum impact in the local churches and beyond.
Also, the VC outlined programmes that are developed to give executive training to various heads and Ieaders in the church. He said, “Beloved, by the grace of God, Pentecost University is rolling out executive training including Pentecostal Leadership.” He said this will enable the Church of Pentecost to document most of its own unique leadership models that it gathered and used over the years. He said these models will be valuable resources for businesses and other corporate organisations.
Apart from the activities at PSTM, the VC hinted to the congregation about the Pentecost Engineering Village. The PEV he said will be leading the Industry 4.0/5.0 agenda in Ghana and Africa. “Because of this, the University is collaborating with local and international institutions to stock the PEV with in-depth researchers and modern technological devices that will provide enhanced digital solutions to industry”… Prof. Agyapong-Kodua added.
The VC concluded by thanking the Chairman of the Church of Pentecost and his Executives, the various Heads, and the Ministers and Wives for their immense support and interest in PU. He also called on them to contribute and support the growth of the CoP Chairman’s Education Foundation (COPCEF) so that more scholarships, bursaries and infrastructure can be provided. He challenged them to continue to contribute to the growth of the University so that it can effectively serve the Church and the nations.
