Methodist Church to cushion congregation with entrepreneurial skills
The Methodist Church of Ghana would intensify its economic empowerment drive among members to cushion them against the hardship in the country.
The Church would offer entrepreneurial skills training among others to position the congregation to earn extra income to support their livelihoods.
According to the Church’s Presiding Bishop, Most. Rev. Dr. Paul Kwabena Boafo, in addition to this, the church will continue to preach hope and the guaranteed salvation when one “accepts Jesus as Lord”.
He was speaking to the media on the sideline of the inauguration of the Ho Diocese and induction ceremony in the Volta Regional capital of Ho.
“At the church, we give proper orientation where we teach how to make life meaningful.
“The first point is accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life. The second point is where our young people are taken through various workshops, orientation and various educational program.
“We take them through the use of their hands, entrepreneurial skills. This is what we do”, he detailed.
He said the church will not encourage members to engage in economic activities which will degrade and pollute the environment.
He stressed that the inauguration of the Ho Diocese will bring the various opportunities and capacity building programs closer to the youth of the church
The ceremony saw the induction of Rt. Rev. Matthew Zikpi as the Bishop of the Ho Diocese and Brother Lawrence Antonio as the Lay Chairman of the Ho Diocese.
