Victory Congregation Fafraha Holds Thanksgiving Service in Honour of Rt Rev Prof Cephas Omenyo The Victory Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at Fafraha in Accra has held a thanksgiving Servicer in honour of Rt Rev Prof Cephas Narh Omenyo, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana on Sunday 18th December 2016 at the Church auditorium.

The Service attracted people from all walks of life including family members, friends, colleague ministers in the ministry and many more.

Rt Rev Prof Omenyo was the first Minister in Charge of the Fafraha Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana between 1998 and 2008. Rt. Rev. Prof Omenyo is a professor of African Christianity and has served as a Minister of the PCG for the past 31 years.

Until his assumption of office as Moderator, Rt Rev Prof. Omenyo has been a Senior Member of the University of Ghana, Legon for the past 21 years. He has worked as a lecturer at the Department for the Study of Religions and served as Hall Master of Akuafo Hall and Dean, Faculty of Arts.

At the time of his election as Moderator, he was the Provost of the College of Education and doubled as the Acting Pro Vice Chancellor for Research, Innovation, and Development from October 2016.

Preaching the sermon, Rt Rev Prof Omenyo envisages a mission-minded church that is sensitive to the Holy Spirit and responsive to the needs of society in Ghana and abroad. For him, when the Holy Spirit moves, it is for missionary work.

The Spirit-filled church must be mission-minded for the Presbyterian Church exists by virtue of missionary works and will continue to exist by missions.

He therefore outlined his vision for the Church which revolves around key thematic areas including Renewal, evangelism and church growth; Discipleship; Diconia (support for the needy); Social justice; Ecumenism and Safeguarding the integrity of creation and renewing life of the earth.

Because the day coincided with 188 birth of the PCG, the moderator paid tribute to early missionaries who sacrificed everything including their lives and come to the then Gold Coast to established the Church on 18th December, 1828.

He said after 188 years the contributions of the PCG to the socio-economic development of Ghana cannot be over-emphasized.

The Victory Congregation presented him with a well designed plaque.
