THE GREAT Eternal Harvest International Ministry (GETHIM) in Kumasi has marked its fifth anniversary with the launch of a Theological University, the Global Bible College.

The special guest of honour at the function, which took place at the Asafo Adjei Hospital complex in Kumasi was Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Asante, Head of the Religious Department at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

In his address, Rev. Prof. Asante urged Christians to lead upright lives. He expressed regret that many people called themselves Christians and yet did not relate to their fellow men well to reflect the true teachings of Jesus Christ.

He urged those who believe they have a calling to do the work of God to receive their training at the Global Bible College, which would begin its academic programme by the end of the year.

According to Very Rev. Prof. Asafo Adjei Anane Frimpong, Founder of GETHIM, the Global Bible College would admit people who have little or no formal education into a special modular adult education programme.

He thanked Bishop Edward Duku, who is based in South Africa, for providing the institution with educational materials and helping with the development of the new university's curriculum.

The Very Rev. Frimpong expressed happiness that GETHIM had within five years set up a medical complex and was now establishing a theological university.

Those at the launch included Very Rev. Charles Frimpong of the Standing Together Mission, Kumasi; Rev. Mrs. Ernestina Ofori of Christ Our Hope Ministry; Very Rev. James Obeng Boakye of the Royal Gate Chapel; and Rev. Dr. Moses Gyawu, Overseer of Alive Gospel Church.

Others were Bishop R.S. Addae, Moderator of the International Ministry Council of Great Britain (Ghana Chapter); Nana Akosua Akyiama III, Queenmother of Old Juaben; and Nana Owusu Ansah Sikatuo, Morsohene of Ashanti Akim.
