EPCG Moderator urges Christians to embrace patience, self-control

, Ghana – The Reverend Chief Superintendent of Prisons George Akuamoah-Boateng (rtd), Ho East Presbytery Moderator of the Evangelical , Ghana (EPCG), has counselled Christians to embody patience, tolerance, and self-control as they await the day of the Lord.

During a send-off service for Rev. Frank Kwame Anku, a former Synod Clerk of at the Kekeli Congregation, Flats Ho, Rev. CSP Akuamoah-Boateng delivered a Homily, emphasizing the significance of these virtues in facing trials, persecution, and temptations.

The theme of the Homily, drawn from Joshua 24: 1 – 3, 14 – 25, I Thessalonians 4: 13 – 18, and Matthew 25: 1 – 13, centred on “preparing for the day of the Lord.”

Rev. CSP Akuamoah-Boateng stressed the need for Christians to renew their covenant with God daily, enabling them to withstand the desires of the flesh and the world.

He encouraged believers to emulate the wisdom of the five wise virgins by engaging in daily meditation on the word of God and prayer, relying on the Holy Spirit for spiritual empowerment rather than depending on others.

In bidding farewell to Rev. Anku, who served as an ordained minister of the church since 1986, the Synod Moderator praised his extensive contributions, including roles as Synod Clerk from 2001 to 2008 and SSNIT Flats District Pastor from 2013 to 2015.

Rev. Anku, who also lectured at the church's University College in Ho, concluded his service by retiring in 2022 as the Vice Principal of the church's Seminary at Peki.

As a token of appreciation, the church presented Rev. Anku with an undisclosed amount of money, accompanied by additional donations from individual members of the congregation.
