The Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Opoku-Onyinah will retire from active service in 2018 once he steps down as chairman of the church.
Dr. Opoku-Onyinah made this known at the ongoing 43th General Council Meeting currently on-going at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC) at Gomoa Fetteh in
the Central region.
The chairman who has served two terms in office will see his second term in office ending in 2018 leaving him with only one year in active service. But he has petitioned the General Council to retire at a premature age of 64 instead of the 65; a decision which has been approved by the church’s council.
Apostle Dr. Onyinah stated that “God has spoken to me to step aside once my term ends, and I want to obey.” This means the chairman will hand over the chairmanship to a new person and retire as well in 2018.
Dr. Opoku-Onyinah was appointed chairman in 2008 to succeed Apostle Dr. Michael Kwabena Ntumy and he was re-elected again in 2013 to serve another five-year term as the head of the church.
Apostle Dr. Opoku Onyinah was born on the 22nd July, 1954 at Aduman in the Ashanti Region. He was the maiden International Missions Director (IMD) of the church from 1991 to 1996. He is also the President of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic
Council and a member of the Peace Council.
