Churches asked to set up Youth Resource Centres
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

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

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
