Tema Anglican Archdeaconry inaugurates Women's Fellowship Executives

The Tema Archdeaconry of the Anglican Women's Fellowship in the Diocese of Accra at the weekend inaugurated new executives to oversee the growth of the guild.

The executives, with a quadrennial term, are expected to ensure the spiritual growth and development of the guild in all 10 parishes in the Archdeaconry.

They include; Sister Lucy Addotey, President, Sister Matilda Ansah, Vice President, Sister Mercy Gloria Dennis, Secretary, Sister Mary Magdalene Mends, Assistant Secretary, Sister Naomi Mills Nartey, Treasurer.

The rest are; Sister Henrietta Sackey, Financial Secretary, Sister Mercy Inkoom, Organising Secretary, Sister Elizabeth Iphraim, Assistant Organizer, Sister Cynthia Attoh, Chaplain, Sister Helena Agyemfrah, Assistant Chaplain, Sister Grace De-Graft, Porter, and Sister Marian Martey, Assistant Porter.

Speaking in a homily during the induction ceremony at the Christ the King Anglican Church in Sakumono, Reverend Canon Anthony Eiwuley, Tema West District Chairman of the Archdeaconry said, God chooses people to take up leadership in order to expand his kingdom.

According to him, people may exude natural traits, but God in his infinite nature, would uplift them to be Christian leaders.

He said in exercising authority and service, leaders ought to exemplify Christ and lead with obedience and integrity.

A servant leader, he intimated should be steadfast and must have a strong bonding with Christ and should at all times be guided by His words.

"A leader is spirit driven and passionate, emulates the leadership traits of Christ and leads without restrictions" he added.

He said true servant leaders are selfless, empathetic, inspirational and good team players who work collectively for the ultimate interest of their fellowship.

He called on the new executives to cultivate the desire to do God's will and serve him with the pureness of hearts.

Rev. Canon Eiwuley further called on members of the fellowship to support the newly inducted executives and complement their efforts in building a formidable and Spirit-filled fellowship.

Sister Lucy Addotey, President of the fellowship on behalf of the newly installed executives, pledged their unwavering commitment to the course of the fellowship.

"As leaders, we won't renege on our responsibilities. We would work assiduously to grow the fellowship", she added.
