Chairman Nyamekye Marks First Day At Work

The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost (COP), Apostle Eric Nyamekye experienced his first day on the job on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 after a short handing-over ceremony was held at the Headquarters at La in Accra.

The event, which was witnessed by the General Secretary, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, and the International Missions Director, Apostle Emmanuel Gyesi-Addo, saw Apostle Eric Nyamekye formally taking over the administrative responsibilities of the Church from his predecessor, Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah (retired).

Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah presented to the new Chairman a signed copy of his hand-over notes as well as some personal documents which, according to him, would be very helpful to the new Chairman in discharging his duties. He then ceremonially put Apostle Eric Nyamekye in the Chairman’s seat to signify his assumption of office.

Speaking at the ceremony, the outgone Chairman remarked that: “Ten years ago, I was officially welcomed into this office to begin official duties as Chairman of The Church of Pentecost. As soon as I began work I purposed in my heart to find a successor. It therefore gives me great pleasure to hand over to the new Chairman, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, to lead the Church.

“I am very content and happy with what God has accomplished for His church for the last ten years and for the smooth transition of leadership He has granted us. I trust that He will continue to be with Apostle Eric Nyamekye as he leads the Church to higher heights. It is my prayer that, under his leadership, the Church would record more successes than ever before.”

Apostle Nyamekye, in his response, thanked God for the great feat He has achieved for the Church and for counting him worthy to serve in the highest office of the Church.

“I am grateful to God for what He has done for His church. I consider myself very privileged to be called to serve in this high office. Indeed, not everyone would have the opportunity to serve as Chairman of the Church. I have always said that I am probably not the best candidate for the office, there are others who are better than I am, but it is the Lord who has favoured me, so I am very grateful to Him.

“I am also grateful to Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah for the support and orientation he has given me especially since my election. He has clearly shown that he is very delighted about what the Lord has done, so I know that I can always count on his support and that of Apostle Dr. Michael K. Ntumy,” he said.

Apostles Kumi-Larbi and Gyesi-Addo also expressed some of their fond memories about the outgone Chairman and expressed their eagerness to commence work with the new Chairman in order to advance the Kingdom business.

As part of his first day in the office, the General Secretary together with Pastor Nicholas Darko (Finance and Administration Director), and Elder Nicholas Kumankoma (Chief Human Resource Manager), gave the Chairman a tour of the departments and offices at the Headquarters.

The tour also took them to the premises of PENT TV, where the Chairman was met by children of Kodie District in the Suame Area of the Church, who were on an excursion to the Headquarters.

Apostle Eric Nyamekye offered a word of prayer for them and joined them to take a group photograph to the delight of the children.




“Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him a name that is above every name” (Philippians 2:9 NIV)

Jesus was the name divinely given before His virgin birth. “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus…” (Matthew 1:21, NIV).  So with this ineffable name Jesus wrapped Himself around with the garment of our humanity.

Other names are dear but the name of Jesus is dearer. This familiar yet precious name, according to Dr Herbert Lockyer (1886-1984) occurs some seven hundred times in the New Testament.

Joshua saved the people of Israel by leading them through River Jordan. He fought their battles and was steadfast in his allegiance to God and his people. Jesus is our heavenly Joshua, who fought the grim battle on our behalf at Calvary, providing thereby a blood-bought deliverance for sin-bound souls.

Jesus is now our Leader, our Protector, and our Defender and will never cease in His care for us until He has us safely in the sheepfold on the other side. There is power in the name of Jesus.  Jesus’ name is the weapon to fight the believer’s enemy – the devil. This name is above every name. There is no other name like the name of Jesus.  Anyone who believes in his or her heart and confesses Jesus as Lord is under the canopy of His mighty name.


Have I truly surrendered my life to Jesus, the only Saviour of the world?


Thank you Lord Jesus that in humility you have been highly exalted. Your name is our strong tower and our hiding place. Amen.

I am pleased to welcome all of you here in the name of God the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit and on behalf of the national youth executive.

I am very much excited in my spirit to say that, 2018 Area youth camp, marks the beginning of a landmark in the growth processes of the COPSA.  I want to dress up the headaches that come with organizing a camp, in these words; It has not been easy, but it is worth it and it has become possible.

We want to express our gratitude to the National head of COPSA, Apostle Dr. Dela Quampah for his personal interest in the youth and his burden to ensure the youth instrument in the Church is vitalized. Together with his entire executives, the Youth ministry is grateful.

We also express our gratitude to Johannesburg area Coordinator, Pastor James Alfred Quaicoe, our host district Pastor and his executives and the Jhb area pastorate for their burden to ensure we run this maiden camp, successfully without deficit. We are aware of all those sacrifices and your bits to ensure the camp happens; May your labour never be in vain and may your reward be great.  

Our theme is “Sound basic gospel produces sound youth” carved from 1 John 2:24-25, and our slogan is, “back to basics.” and this camp shall empower us to repent from possible high mindedness and the temptations that come from being overly aware, interested and updated with all other things in the world but scripture. Some of you will understand after this camp the biblical reasons to “why we don’t do what we don’t do and why we do what we do

Please let it be on records that, the reflection of Dr. Dela  Quampah (national head) is true; “the purpose of COPSA youth ministry is not Youth Camp”, in that spirit , I want to charge all participants to go back to your various local Churches and light up, by attending your scheduled youth services and penetrate our communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The primary purpose for camp 2018 is to Challenge the youth for a cause, through the foundational instruments of our fathers (Tenets); I am very optimistic that, we can change the course of affairs in the World today through our tertiary institutions, but these ideas will be still born if you graduate and you decide to leave COPSA also.  In relation to scripture, I can tell you for a fact that, we are living in desperately dangerous times and we must be able to consistently and persistently engage the conditions around us with scripture and our biblical lifestyles and Christian TREND settings.

You are my witness that, today our high schools and tertiary institutions have become the cesspools of immorality, rebellion and the hotbed for anti-Christian worldviews and the future Parents, teachers, journalists, politicians, engineers, doctors, lawyers, scientist, bakers and business men and women are currently studying on that campus; that makes our campuses a strategic harvest field.

Since you are in that college, university and high school, can you please explore the opportunity for us to come into such environment with PENSA, which is long overdue? All you need to do is to get interested and hit a button to send a whatshap message to 071 847 0271. The incentives for doing that are many.

I want to specially thank all our facilitators who accepted our invitation to come and impart anointing, knowledge and experience. To our first – time campers, you are warmly welcome to fellowship in our spirit filled environment.

Let me close off by this; if you snooze at this camp, you will lose. Catch both the letter and the spirit as we sharpen our basics. Never forget that Sound basic biblical teaching will produce Sound YOU!

God is not Judging you


Some people see God as a judge who has exacting demands on man. When they fall short or when things gowrong in their lives, they think that God is judging them. My friend, the truth is that if you are a believer, Goddoes not bring any charge against you. Instead, He justifies you because of the blood of His Son. In fact, God’s Word goes on to say that the One who has the right to condemn you, chose instead to die for you and is risen at the Father’s right hand to be your righteousness! (Romans 8:34)
But what the devil tries to do is to get you to believe that God watches you with a critical eye and punishes you when you do wrong. He has deceived many sincere Christians into believing that if they have done something wrong, bad things have a right to come upon them and their families. And when these things happen, he convinces them that they are suffering God’s judgment because of their wrongdoings. In the meantime, these sincere Christians struggle with condemnation because they think that they are the cause of their problems.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Ever since the cross, where Jesus was judged in your place for every one of your wrong actions, thoughts and words, God no longer judges you, His child. You need not accept condemnation because Jesus took all your punishment at the cross. So when you start to feel condemned for your actions or when you experience negative circumstances, say, “It is written: It is God who justifies me. I am completely forgiven and made righteous before Him. I refuse to accept any condemnation and I reject every symptom of the curse that I am seeing in my circumstances!” Then, simply stand on the truth of God’s Word, and watch Him deliver and bless you!

Father God this is the day you have made, we shall rejoice and be glad in it. Thank you Lord for your amazing grace that saved us from your wrath, through your Son Jesus Christ. Help us to understand that there is no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus. Give us this day our daily bread. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from all evil. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We pray all this in the unequalled name of your Son and our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen…. Stay blessed and Shalom.

Devotion by Pst David Mwamba Zuze

Where is your Faith – Pastor David Mwamba Zuze

Mark 4:35-41 New King James Version (NKJV)
35 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” 36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace,[a] be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How[b] is it that you have no faith?”41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!
For us to benefit from his grace and power,him being on the boat is not good enough. We need to have a full revelation of who he is! The challenge with humanity and more especially Christians is not necessarily the absence of God,but the lack of understanding of what it means to have Jesus in ourselves. 
-It’s one thing to know that Jesus is in the ( boat) ourlives. It’s another to believe in his ability.
-Just to remind you in case you have forgotten that nothing is impossible with him.
-He created all that we see out of nothing.
Today let’s reflect on his immeasurable power. 
1 John 4:4 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Stay blessed and Shalom.
