In a communiqué issued at the end of the 2016 synod held at the University of Ghana, Legon, the church asked government to initiate the adoption of national core values such as honesty and moral uprightness to be taught and inculcated to enable children eschew evil as they grow.
Besides, all churches and faith based organisations must intensify efforts in inculcating good moral values in their members.
While the Synod commended government for its progress in undertaking development projects and the provision of educational infrastructure, it also urged government to enhance its partnership with the private sector to address youth unemployment.
The Synod also called on Ghanaians to engage in their political activities and exercise their franchise in the December general election, in a peaceful manner.
It said since no single political party’s manifesto could make Ghana a great and prosperous nation, Synod appealed to the political parties and civil society organisations to be committed to contribute to the drawing of a single credible national development plan for the country.
The Synod urged Ghanaians to be security conscious as they engage in their daily activities as well as public functions.
Meanwhile, the church also made key resolution and decisions during the Synod meeting, including intensifying teachings on living the Kingdom life, teachings on the prudent use of God-given resources as well as teachings on various forms of prayer at all levels of the Global Evangelical Church.
It also announced key actions that include establishing a development and relief fund to be called Congregational Infrastructural Development Programme (CIDeP); separating the proposed Global Evangelical University College and the Theological Seminary; establishing an Internal Education Unit; and formulating a policy to retain students and the youth in the church.
The theme for the 2016 Synod was: “Thy Kingdom Come- Living the kingdom life.”
