Pentecost University has welcomed fresh ministerial students to its campus in Gomoa Fetteh near Accra.
In view of that, a welcome ceremony was held today Wednesday 17th February 2021 at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC).
Speaking to the students, the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Aps. Eric Nyamekye admonished them to take their intellectual and spiritual development seriously. He said, “the church will invest heavily in your stay here; I, therefore, admonish you to be intentional about your own spiritual and intellectual development.”
Aps. Nyamekye further admonished the new ministerial students to encounter God at a personal level as Moses in the Bible did. Their studies are to draw them closer to God. He said, “our world does not need more pastors but men of God whose minds are saturated with Godly principles.”
On his part, the Vice-Chancellor of Pentecost University, Rev. Prof Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua welcomed the students to the PU community. He referenced the vision 2023 of The Church of Pentecost “to possess the nations through influencing world views in order to bring all men to the saving knowledge of Christ and therefore challenged the fresh students to be studious and diligent in their academic work.
He said, “for us to possess the nations, we need to master what we have, master what others know, and present alternatives in very compelling, spiritual and knowledgeable manners.”
Prof. Agyapong-Kodua further threw more light on the University A+ agenda and asked the new students to get involved. “Friends, when I say University A+, I mean Pentecost University at another level, distinctive in training deeply rooted Christians who are intellectually sound and able to solve problems; as such as you join us, you need to prepare to gain more knowledge with the mind of Christ.
Mr. Michael K. Gyimah, the Chief Information Officer of the University taught the new students how to access the PU library resources.
On the other hand, Mr. Dedzah Dickson Danny from the Corporate Affairs office took them through personal branding and social media usage that will enhance the University A+ agenda.
The new students took the matriculation oath of the University administered by the Registrar, Mr. Foster Amoani.
