Crystal Chapel International situated at Ngleshie-Amanfrom in the Greater Accra Region has staged its maiden ordination service which saw the passing out of three pastors, seven ministers and five elders.
At the February 23 event, leader of the church, Apostle David Mintah Addy expressed delight at finally having men and women who have shown dedication to the cause of Christ.
“It’s taken five years to have our first ordination service as a church but I am content that we now have ministers eager and willing to win more souls for the kingdom of God as well as expand Christ’s territory. It’s great to have ministers to fulfill the great commission,” Apostle Addy submitted.
Key speaker, Most Reverend Dr. Richard Ahiagbedey of the Adonai International Ministries urged the newly ordained minsters to eschew greed and serve the body of Christ.
The three pastors ordained are Solomon Amaglo, David Amponsah and Eric Keelson. The seven ministers (deacon) spans Grace Letsu, Awutey Oxford Senyegbe, Francis Jackson Attipoe, Mabel Commeley Otoo, Miriam Commiorkor Otoo, Beatrice Goka and Caroline Gyan Danso while the graduating five elders include Peter Apawu Abboah-Offei, Esther Manu, Patience Ofori, Juliet Mawutor and Fidelis Buchi Ofili.
Song ministration was by gospel duo Willie and Mike, the Crystal Choir, High Powered Voices as well as singing duo Mabel and Miriam.
In session for the ordination was Rev. Mrs. Ernestina Ivy Hiadzi of the High Powered Ministries International, Bishop Dr. Fidel Owusu Agyei; Presiding Bishop of Potters Hand Apostolic Mission, Apostle Jonathan Essel of the Jesus Mission International and Apostle Maxwell Martey of the International Kingdom Worshippers Church.
