Divine Healer's Church ordains 28 pastors

Accra, April 30, GNA - The Divine Healer's Church in Accra on Saturday ordained 28 pastors in Accra with a call on them to serve God and the church diligently and to lead exemplary lives worthy of emulation. The Reverend Apostle Amaziah Aflah Armah, General Overseer of the church, exhorted the newly ordained pastors to serve as messengers and watchmen in the Lord's vineyard and to teach and feed the Lord's family.

"I exhort you to seek Christ's lost sheep abroad and bring them back to Christ. Remember to be committed to your call and work with sincerity to enhance the faith of your congregation and the church at large," he said. "Let the word of God be your guard and always seek the face of the Lord and ensure that all your deeds will justify His Holy name," he added.

Among the new pastors was the Rev. Pastor Emmanuel P.K. Aubin, an Editor at the Ghana News Agency. The Rev. Apostle Maxwell Foster Aryeetey, General Secretary and his Assistant, the Rev. Apostle Isaac Kwabena-Adade led the new pastors to re-affirm their faith before the congregation. A certificate, license and Holy Bible were presented to each of them as a sign of their elevation. The ordination was postponed from February 26 due to a court action taken by the youth of the church challenging the eligibility of the General Overseer to lay hands on the new pastors. After consultations, they withdrew the case out of court and paved the way for Saturday's ceremony.
