Rev. Prof. Ivy Drafor- Amenyah, Director of Research, Innovation and Consultancy Center of Pentecost University has urged lecturers and administrators to observe Godly values in dealing with students.
She made the comment when delivering an message in a two-day Prayer and Fasting Retreat of Management and Staff of Pentecost University.
Speaking on the theme “Building Godly Values for a Christian University”, Prof. Drafor- Amenyah admonished staff of the University to exhibit high sense of morality in all spheres of their professional lives.
“Beloved, we mark students’ scripts in our private study but let’s remember that we can’t mark them anyhow if we have Godly values”, Rev. Prof. Drafor- Amenyah added.
In a seven-point message, she encouraged staff to change their spheres of influence in the university’s administration. She further urged them to be courageous and speak out for the changes that will take the University to a world-class level. “I tell you, colleagues, that change is not for cowards, and to get it in the new Pentecost University, we should be courageous and speak out”, Prof. Drafor-Amenyah said.
She added that “however, it is the Godly values we imbibe in us and moral uprightness in the discharge of our duties that will give us the courage to speak”.
She, therefore, entreated staff to connect with the right fellowship, keep their conscience alive and take personal responsibility to develop an intimate relationship with God in order to develop the needed virtues.
