Leaders Are Appointed To Transform Lives -Bishop

The Kumasi Diocese of the Methodist Church Ghana has inducted the Very Reverend Stephen Kwaku Owusu as its new Synod Secretary.

The Right Reverend Christopher Nyarko Andam, Methodist Bishop of Kumasi used the occasion to admonished leaders to strive to be selfless and always seek the welfare of the masses.

“Leadership is a call to duty and those who find themselves in such positions should always be committed to the cause of humanity,” he said. He said every leader is endowed with his or her own potential and ought to be used to transform the lives of the people to achieve social prosperity.

Touching on the proliferation of self-styled prophets, the Methodist Bishop expressed worry at “how some of their prophecies are twisted for selfish gains. “Prophecies of today have all been centred on the acquisition of visas and other trivial issues. They do not demonstrate God’s own true vision for the people, and I think it is about time that the people are told the truth,” he said.

Rt Rev Nyarko Andam, preaching on the theme “You are Mine, I Have Ordained You”, entreated the new Synod Secretary to liaise with the laity and stakeholders to step up the church’s outreach programmes.

He asked him to strengthen evangelism at all levels to salvage the society from evil.Very Rev Owusu thanked the church for the confidence reposed in him, and promised to work in humility, and also abide by the church’s principles for growth.
