Clergy urged to win souls, not riches

Rt. Reverend Samuel Prosper Dzomeku

The World Evangelical Church moderator, Rt. Rev. Samuel Prosper Dzomeku, called on the clergy to win souls for the Kingdom of God and refrain from the temptation of collecting wealth.

He said the behavior of some men of God, who instead of winning souls, engaged in aggressive wealth collecting, had made the appeal suspect to the public as they believe people are pursuing the ministry because of the money.

The Rt. Rev. Dzomeku was preaching a sermon at the ordination service of 34 church ministers at the Worldwide Evangelical Church, Trinity Parish at Kotobabi in Accra.

Preaching on the theme: “The Reward of the Faithful Steward,” the moderator said, God is the rewarder of his servants and not of human beings.

He therefore recommended to the ordinands not to trust people and to overburden their followers, for God is faithful and would supply all their needs.

He urged them to generously share the word of God to have the necessary impact on their lives and the lives of others.

The moderator warned them to refrain from the practice where sermons were preached to touch people’s pockets to give and not their hearts for repentance.

He reminded ministers of their primary duty to win souls for Christ, adding that they must fulfill it faithfully.

The Moderator assisted by the Reverend Dr. Yohanes Ahiabu, Clerk of the Synod, performed the rites of Ordination.

Rev. Mrs. Love Srebi, one of the newly ordained ministers, on behalf of her colleagues, thanked God for His grace upon them.

She also expressed her gratitude to the Church Executive, Synod Committee, Elders Church Executives, Global Theological Seminary Faculty and their families, who were present to witness the ceremony, for their respective roles resulting from the success of their Ordination.
