The Right Reverend Prosper Samuel Dzomeku, Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church (GEC), has called on Parliament to swiftly pass the anti-Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) bill.
Rt. Rev. Dzomeku made this statement during his sermon at the Ordination Service of 32 Ministers of the GEC at the Trinity Chapel in Kotobabi, Accra.
Preaching on the theme of “Holiness and the Word of God” based on Psalm 119:9-11, he emphasized the need to intentionally nurture and guide the youth and children, particularly in the face of foreign cultural practices that have permeated the nation.
According to the Moderator, intentional training of the younger generation with the Word of God is the antidote to the moral decadence currently affecting the nation.
He stressed that the Word of God has the power to purify and sanctify, and teaching sound doctrine to the youth will enable them to withstand external pressures, providing hope for the future.
Rt. Rev. Dzomeku called on the newly ordained clergy to prioritize not only the adult population but also the ministries focused on youth and children.
The Ordination rites were led by the Moderator, with support from the Synod Clerk, Rev. Dr. Yohanes Ahiabu. Presbyter Eyram Atsu and Presbyter Joyce Dieu Donne Ahiabor read the Scriptures for the day in English and Ewe, respectively.
Rev. Godfred Ofori, one of the newly ordained Ministers, expressed gratitude on behalf of his colleagues to the Church‘s executive members, family, friends, and congregations for their support.
The ceremony was attended by past Executives of the Church, current and former Synod Committee Members, various dignitaries, as well as family and friends of the ordained Ministers.
