The Right Reverend Dr Setorwo Ofori, the Moderator of the Global Evangelical Church, has noted that the country is now in an era where ministers of the Gospel are refusing transfers.
 
“We are now living in the world where a lot of people called into ministry refuse to accept transfers because of lack of basic amenities in the location,” he stressed. 
 
Speaking at the commissioning of 12 ministers and the ordination of 19 others, he said their calling had dimension of transfers and therefore, encouraged them to see it as a core mandate of service.
 
He urged the ministers to emulate Jesus’s exemplary life by knowing that  “one cannot develop theology without movement”.
 
“Abraham moved upon instruction,” he explained.
 
Rev Ofori said there was the need to move from one location to another to experience new things, such as geographical areas and new people to enrich one’s capacity building in the Lord.
 
His sermon was on the theme: “Calling, postings and transfer.”  
 
Rev Patricia Akpene Tegbe-Agbo, the Public Relations Officer of the Global Evangelical Church and also the only female among the ordained ministers expressed gratitude to the authorities and the congregation.
 
She lauded the enormous support given them in diverse ways before, during and after the course.    
 
She said it took humility, patience and the fear of God to achieve greater heights.    
 
The Global Evangelical Church, a vibrant Bible-believing Church, accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and believes in the full manifestation of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit.
 
The church has a membership of about 135,000 congregants, 289 ministers in active service and 870 congregations spread throughout the country.    
 
It has branches in the United Kingdom, United States, Norway, Cote d’Ivoire, Togo and Kenya with missionary efforts in other countries.
