Venerable Felix Annancy, the new Archdeacon of the Oda Archdeaconry of the Anglican Church, has said there was the need for the church to come out a clear policy on evangelism to help end the slow growth of the church.
He urged his fellow clergy not to be discouraged with the current trend of the church but to remain focused, work as a team and remain committed to God who called them to service and he will strengthen them.
Venerable Annancy was speaking at the silver jubilee and thanks giving service of his ordination into the priesthood in 1988 at the Akuse Saint Anthony Church on Sunday.
He said no one person could achieve much without the support of others and thanked members of the clergy, the Anglican Church, his friends and members of his family who had helped him throughout his 25 years in the priesthood.
Reverend Professor Elom Dovlo, Deputy Director of Distant Education, University of Ghana , who was the guest preacher, said the manna of old, had not stopped falling from the heavens.
He said just as manna was to meet the basic needs of the Israelites in the desert, God still continues to provide for the needs of the current faithful in the form of their basic necessities like good health, peace and many other basics of life.
As part of the celebrations, the Most Reverend Gershon Allotey Okine, former Archbishop of the Anglican Province of West Africa who ordained Venerable Annancy into priesthood, prayed for him for God’s continuous guidance and support.
