Reverend Dr Lawson Kwaku Dzanku, Clerk-elect of the General Assembly of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana (EPCG) Wednesday noted that the Church was sick and therefore needed urgent healing.

“The Church is sick, we are all sick, we need urgent healing at all levels of our Church life and discipline,” he said.

Rev. Dr Dzanku said this in his address at the EPCG Pastors Association January meeting in Ho.

He said, “the Church is sick financially, our financial woes are deep and we implore heaven to open our hearts and minds to the way out of this quagmire.”

He said that it was only a holistic healing that could bring new life and vitality into every aspect of the ministerial engagements of the Church.

Rev. Dr Dzanku appealed to members of the Church to allow God to heal them and use them as his instruments of holistic healing and revival of the Church.

He noted that membership of the Church continued to dwindle and described the situation as an age long challenge.

Rev. Dr Dzanku said there was therefore an urgent need for the Pastors to gird their loins and put their shoulders to the wheel to synergize the membership drive effort of the leadership.

He called on them to work concertedly to stem the tide.

Rev. Dr Dzanku appealed to them to “re-invirogate and re-energise the youth ministry of the Church, saying that the youth had the passion, energy, and drive to help build the Church to make it a formidable and leading agent of the commission of Jesus Christ.

He appealed to members of the Church to discard unattractive and un-evangelistic Church activities so that the Church could experience true holistic healing “and bounce back as a strong agent of this soul winning business.”

He appealed to those in leadership positions, especially in the church to eschew apathy, indifference, and lack of commitment.

Rev. Dr Dzanku said the Church’s water project would soon start production and appealed for the injection of the highest sense of selflessness, probity, and accountability from those who would manage it.

“Uphold the tenet of good stewardship to sustain this noble project,” he advised.

Rev. Dr Dzanku promised to run an open door administration and deal with issues objectively and dispassionately.

“Critiques are unpaid teachers therefore I will not discount them but rather use them to empower members of the Church spiritually, materially, and socioculturally.

Rev. Dr. Dzanku will be inducted into office in Ho as the third Clerk of the General Assembly of the Church on Sunday, 9th January, 2022 for a six-year term.
