The Right Reverend Dr Setorwu Ofori, the Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, has urged Ghanaians to tolerate divergent views and remain united to ensure that the impending general election are peaceful.
“Teamwork and tolerance must be the watch words of every Ghanaian as they are critical to ensuring that election 2016 is peaceful.”
The Moderator was preaching at a thanksgiving service to climax this year’s Global Men’s National Conference held at Ho, the Volta Regional Capital.
The Conference was on the theme: “Thy Kingdom Come: The Role of Men in Kingdom Business.”
He said just as with the triune God, there is unity among God the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit and as humans created in their image, we must also embrace one another and work as a team in every sphere of our national life.
Rev Raphael Mac Attih, Synod Clerk of the Global Evangelical Church, who was the main Speaker for the Conference, called upon men to stretch their efforts beyond their perfunctory duties, take initiatives in order to contribute their quota to national development and also to fulfill their God given mandate as leaders.
He said a number of works are suffering setbacks because most of the men who are supposed to be in charge are rather on the touch-line or are mere spectators.
“Even some of those men who are involved in certain activities are only performing lightly- they are neither hot nor cold,” he observed.
He said Ghana could be transformed and made a better place for all, if men assumed their rightful positions and perform their roles and responsibilities to the fullest.
Rev Attih challenged men to gird up their loins and get into action so as to redeem their sunken image and provide the needed leadership for the society.
The National Coordinator of the Global Men’s Ministry, Rev Emmanuel Bredzei said, there is a new wave of revival blowing through the ministry, which he promised would be sustained.
There were solidarity messages from Francis Ganyaglo, Deputy Volta Regional Minister, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Men’s Fellowship, Children, Youth and Women’s Ministries of the Global Evangelical Church.
