Reverend Stephen Wengam, who serves as the General Overseer of the Assemblies of God in Ghana, has lauded President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his ability to manage state concerns amid challenging periods such as the COVID-19 and the present economic troubles.
Reverend Wengam lauded the president for his bold efforts, such as the Free SHS program, the Planting for Food and Jobs program, and the construction of the National Cathedral.
In addition to this, he pleaded with the administration to make more efforts to alleviate the suffering of the people.
When Reverend Wengam led a small group of officials and members of the Executive Presbytery of the Assemblies of God in Ghana to talk with the President, one of the people in that group was speaking.
Reverend Wengam provided the President with an update on the Assemblies of God’s national and international effect, and the President took notes.
He made much of the fact that the Assemblies of God is the biggest Pentecostal denomination in the world, with a total membership of 70 million people throughout the world.
A total of 6,000 congregations and 3,800 pastors are part of the Assemblies of God Church in Ghana, which has a membership of 600,000 people.
Reverend Wengam told the President of Ghana that there are members of the Assemblies of God involved in every part of national life in Ghana, including in a number of positions in the current government.
The Assemblies of God have also made a considerable contribution to the socioeconomic life of Ghana, particularly in the fields of health and education via the construction of hospitals and schools.
The General Superintendent and all of his staff were given congratulations, and President Akufo-Addo thanked them for giving him inspiration.
He pleaded with the people of the nation to pray more.
Reverend Stephen Wengam and the other members of his team went to the Presidency to present the President with the new leadership of the Assemblies of God in Ghana.
It was also to debate problems of national development and further enhance the link between the church and the state.
