He said the value of the Church should be felt every day, everywhere and touching everybody, just as Jesus Christ’s work on earth, went beyond his miracles to affect the lowly placed and the voiceless.

Rt. Rev. Dr. Ofori slammed some church leaders for visiting their flock with spurious doctrines, as “spiritual pimps,” who were enslaving followers.

Inducted along with Rt. Rev. Dr. Ofori were Rev. Raphael Mac Kwesi Attih, as Synod Clerk; Professor Reimmel Kwame Adosraku, Lecturer, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and Mrs Christiana Esi Bobobee, Stool Lands Administrator, as male and female Presbyter Executives respectively.

The team of four, forming the Synod Committee Executive, the management pinnacle of the Church, becomes the first to run a six-year non-renewable term, as prescribed by the reviewed constitution of the Church.

Rt. Rev. Dr. Ofori said their election was a call to stewardship of God and the people, a core duty for all elected and appointed leaders.

Rev. Dr. Fred Deegbe, Immediate Past General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana in a sermon, said challenges were part of life and therefore, every leader must be prepared to face them.

He said leaders in all realms, were not all-knowing, so just as Moses, leading the Israelites out of captivity had to consult God to provide water for the Israelites, so must all leaders seek the counsel of God.

Highlights of the smoothly run programme was the handover of a Bible and the Constitution of the Church by Very Rev. Dr Edem Tettey, the Immediate Past Moderator, to Rt Rev. Dr. Ofori, followed by the rendition of the Great Hallelujah Chorus in Ewe.

A schism in the Evangelical Presbyterian (EP) Church, Ghana in the early 1980s led to the formation of the EP Church of Ghana, which was later changed to the Global Evangelical Church.

Rev Winfred Hayford Azornu, a staffer of the EP Church Ghana Headquarters represented the Church.
