Following the recent high ascendancy of ministerial errors among a cross section of the clergy within Christendom, the head pastor for Trinity Foundation Ministry at Achiase off Barekese road Rev Francis Owusu Ansah has identified the absence of unity, mentor-ship and the haste on the part of some young minister to assume leadership role as factors fueling the foregoing?abnormalities.
According to His Honor Bishop Addae on the latter, the failure on the part of? majority of today’s church leaders , springing to assume sensitive roles in the Lord’s vineyard in subjecting themselves to the tutelage of? servants of God with genuine calling for proper grooming is seriously affecting the reputations of the business of the father, characterized by contorted doctrines, low standard of pastoral ethics, diversion of ministry, wrong ministration of the gifts of the spirit and a host of others.
Speaking to the moment in an interview following the celebration of the Church?s 10th Anniversary under the theme, ?God is good?? Rev. Francis Owusu? indicated that “To assume the seat of a shepherd , it is expected of one to recognize the importance of falling under the feet of those who have for years and experience chart the cause of a particular? ministerial office.
Aspiring preachers must understand that the achievement of others, offers them a key to unlocking their own goodly excellence, hence the need to be associated with spiritual mentors? with all humility, not as an act of worship but rather to learn the cause of their success and how to produce a heavenly results , acceptable before the father,” he noted
Majority of the servants of God who rush into ministry he indicated are at the long run spotted missing the mark of the great commission due to the fact that they didn’t receive much or no exposure to the grooming of a spiritual father which would have ushered them to a maturity stage to handle a ministry on their own.
“Leadership is not just learned by scanning words, sentences or paragraphs only from the scriptures, it is grasped by the mind and the spirit of those who search for it in the lives of true, faithful, righteous and matured men of God.?
Many ministers of God he stressed are frustrated in their attempt to produce the expected results of the?great commission and have a result switched to a different purpose notably the commercialization of the gospel.
“Like the biblical Esau, some preachers of our time have traded the inheritance of the reputation of the kingdom of God for the pottage of dollars and cents. They have become day and night traders, bartering the wealth of the eternal for the pittance of the temporary,” he noted.
