Accra, April 24, GNA—Apostle Daniel Kwami
Noble-Atsu, Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the

Ghana Pentecostal Council has called on churches to consider

putting up youth resource centres to cater
for their training and counselling.
This, he said, would enable their gifts and talents to be

harnessed for accelerated growth of the church and the nation.

Apostle Noble-Atsu made the call at the opening of the 35th

Annual conference of the Accra Presbytery of the Global

Evangelical Church in Accra on Friday.
About 100 delegates from the region are attending the

three-day conference which is under the theme; ”Harnessing all gifts

for Accelerated Growth”
It is aimed at deliberating on issues affecting the church and

also map out strategies to face the challenges.
Apostle Noble-Atsu said the youth were the future of the

family, the church and the nation and that their future would largely

depend on the type of training or grooming they receive.

The Regional Chairman expressed regret that, the youth were

exposed to pornographic and “Sakawa” filth on the internet and the

HIV/AIDS menace, whilst schools and other associations

encouraged them to engage in premarital sex by using condoms.

The Reverend Christian Gbekor, Accra Presbytery Chairman

of the Church, called on parents to take active interest in the

education of their wards to enable them to grow to become useful

citizens.
He said the Church would soon venture into grass-cutter,

mango and other projects to raise funds to support the activities of

the Church.
