Having dutifully served the Chris­tian community for over 40 years and having reached the time to bow out, a send-off service was held in Accra at the weekend for the past General Superintendent of the Assem­blies of God (AG) in Ghana, Rev. Prof. Paul Frimpong-Manso, and his wife, Rev. Mrs. Gladys Frimpong-Manso.

The ceremony was held to honour their over 40 years of service to the church, having served as local officers through to the top.

Touting the dedicated services he has provided to the church over the years, the General Superintendent, AG, Ghana, Rev. Dr. Stephen Wengam, referred to his predecessor as a man of many parts as he made great strides during his tenure.

He said Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Man­so mobilised local assemblies in the church for remarkable endeavours and repositioned them as key Christian denominations in the country.

Again, Rev. Dr. Wengam noted that his predecessor was able to build 3,000 churches within five years, which had led to phenomenal growth in the church.

“During his tenure as pastor at the Gospel Centre AG, Old Tafo, he assist­ed in raising church membership from 50 to more than 1,000 and planted 12 strong branches in the Old Tafo area,” he added.

Rev. Dr. Wengam stated that it was during Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Man­so’s tenure that the church saw the construction of an ultra-modern head office complex, a technical university, the establishment of the AG Minis­ters’ Pension Board, and the setting up of the AG Television Station.

The King of Akyem Abuakwa, Okyenhene Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin, who was the Special Guest of Honour, said the church, the Chris­tian Council, and the country at large were privileged to have a man after God’s own heart.

He emphasised that Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso was a man with vi­sion, integrity, and an understanding and adept knowledge of the word of God, adding that his service to God and man had strengthened Christians in the country.

“As you officially retire from active duty, me, my wife and family, and the entire Okyeman appreciate and send you our best wishes.” After all your hard work and dedicated services to God and humanity over the years, I am glad you are retiring , and I appreciate you for being an exemplary, bold leader for the past decade,” he added.

Rev. Prof. Frimpong-Manso re­marked that the successes chalked during his tenure were by the grace of God and added that, though he was retiring, he would continue to serve God and the church.

He used the opportunity to urge young pastors to seek the face of God in all the decisions they made. He added that success could only be guaranteed by God and not man.
