Accra, Dec. 14, GNA – The Right Rev. Dr. Setorwu Kwadzo Ofori, Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church (GEC) has bemoaned the practice of the youth, in particular, and Ghanaians in general, where a premium is placed on anything foreign at the expense of the local one.
“The problem we have as a nation and Africans is the fact that we do not use what we have. We have been trained…not sure where the training came from though, to admire what others are doing and often despise our own,” he said.
The Rt. Rev. Dr Ofori was speaking at a ceremony to mark the official moving of the Global Theological Seminary (GTS)from Adenta, in Accra, to its permanent site at Adaklu Wumenu, near Ho, the Volta Regional capital.
Speaking on the theme: “God is the Provider,” the Moderator said God in his infinite wisdom and mercies, has blessed Ghanaians and Africans with rich resources that could be garnered for development.
He said it was about time “we looked internally and made use of all the resources, human and natural to change our negative narratives.
“Let us develop the taste for our God-given resources and distaste for foreign ones.”
On the training of pastors and the GTS, the Moderator said the GEC has decided to train its own pastors and church leaders.
“After the initial sound doctrinal training they receive from GTS, they are allowed to further their education from other evangelical institutions,” he explained.
Dr. Archibald Letsa, the Volta Regional Minister and a Presbyter of the GEC, encouraged members to get themselves vaccinated against the Covid-19 pandemic.
He urged them to debunk the myth that injecting the vaccine was the mark of the beast.
The Volta Regional Minister also called on Ghanaians to patronise the newly commissioned Ho Airport for their safety, comfort, to save time and to keep the facility in business.
Rev. Dr Komi Hiagbe, Rector of the Seminary, expressed gratitude to the leadership and the entire membership of the Church for relocating the facility to their permanent site which would contribute, in no small measure, to finalising the government’s accreditation.
