Global Evangelical Church ordains 25 pastors

The Global Evangelical Church on Sunday ordained 25 pastors with a call on them to depend on the direction of God in the performance of their duties in the Ministry.

The pastors successfully served on probation for two years.

The Right Reverend Dr Edem Tettey, Moderator of the Church, officiated and administered the oaths to the pastors.

In a sermon on the theme: “When God speaks,” Right Reverend Dr Emmanuel Komla Gbordzoe, former Moderator of the Church, urged Christians to seek the direction of God in all things.

He said it is important for the Christian to discern the voice of God in all actions and avoid being led into sin by voices that are opposed to the will of God.

Rt Reverend Gbordzoe said to be successful Christians one must be able to identify and side-step the control of misleading voices.

He said while God speaks to everyone, most are unable to listen because of the contrary voices, which make them confuse and redirect their focus from the will of God in their personal, business and spiritual life.

Rt Reverend Gbordzoe said the wide spread deviant behaviours such as sexual immorality, inordinate craze for money and occultic practices being exhibited by humanity because of physical needs call for action from all.

He said sticking to immoral behaviours retard progress in the ministry, business and personal life, adding that Christians must recognise and deflate unholy practices through the word.

All the ordained pastors signed legal documents enjoining them to work for the Church in various parts of the country and perform pastoral duties.
