The Methodist Church in the Bia West District of the Western North Region welcomed a new leader as the Very Reverend Nana Addo Acquah was officially inducted into office as the Adjoafua Circuit Superintendent Minister.
At 45 years old, Very Rev. Acquah brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having served in various capacities within the Methodist Church over the past nine years. Initially responsible for a single society in the Sefwi Bekwai Diocese, he now oversees Methodist Church activities in 20 societies comprising the Circuit.
The induction ceremony, officiated by Diocesan Bishop Right Reverend Robert Felix Bassaw, emphasized the importance of humility and servant leadership. Bishop Bassaw urged Very Rev. Acquah to work collaboratively with congregants to foster both the physical and spiritual growth of the Circuit, cautioning against the misuse of authority within the church.
Addressing the congregation, Very Rev. Acquah expressed gratitude for the honour bestowed upon him and pledged to fulfil his responsibilities effectively. He emphasized the need for unity among members, particularly as the country prepared for the upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections in December.
Born in December 1978 in Ekwamkrom, Gomoa Central District, Central Region, Very Rev. Acquah pursued his education in Kumasi before obtaining a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agricultural Science from the University of Cape Coast. He later earned a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Education Winneba and a Masters Degree in Divinity from the Trinity Theological Seminary in 2015.
With his diverse educational background and years of ministry experience, Very Rev. Acquah is poised to lead the Adjoafua Circuit with compassion and dedication. Married with four daughters, he looks forward to working closely with congregants to enhance the spiritual upliftment of the Church and foster a sense of unity and purpose within the Circuit.
