Professor Samuel Afrane, the President of the Christian Service University College, has called for Christians to take centre stage in the fight against wickedness and unruly conduct in the society.

He said he found it deeply troubling that people were increasingly becoming uncaring and unforgiving.
The nation, he indicated, could not travel that path and asked Christians to lead the way to help everybody to recognize “our shared humanity”.
Prof Afrane was speaking at a public symposium organized by the Ashanti Region Scripture Union (SU) in Kumasi.
“The impact of SU work on society: past, present and future” was the theme chosen for the programme held to climax 150 years of reaching people with God’s word.
Activities marking the event included evangelistic outreach, health walk and screening, rally, a day of prayer and congregational worship at selected churches.
Prof Afrane asked church leaders not to over concentrate on numerical increase at the expense of the spiritual growth of the people.
He counselled that more emphasis was put on helping them to do what was right, noble and dignified.
He urged the SU and other Christian bodies to target the youth – aid them to be God fearing and to reject acts of misconduct.
“There is the need to intensify the ministry among families and the youth particularly, to secure their future and that of the country”, he added.
The Reverend Samuel Odarno, the Founder of Trinity Foundation West Africa, appealed to school authorities, to open their doors to the SU to teach students the word of God.
He said this was the way forward to turn them away from sexual immorality and the practice of occultism.
