The Moderator-Elect of the Evangelical Presbyterian (E.P) Church, Ghana Rev. Dr. Seth Senyo Agidi has disclosed that, the church under his tenure will strengthen its collaborative efforts with other stakeholders to uplift both the spiritual and social status of individuals in the society, in order to drive the socio-economic development agenda of the country.
Reverend Dr Agidi, who is the church’s Director of Programme, Ecumenical and Social Relations, was elected at the just ended 6th General Assembly meeting and will take over from Right Reverend Francis Amenu, in January 2015 for a six years term.
At a cocktail reception organised in his honour by the Rotary Club of Ho, of which he is member, Rev. Dr. Agidi noted that core tenets of Rotary is in sync with the church’s mission of improving the well being of individuals, since it is not enough for the church to only feed people spiritually with the gospel.
“When the spirit is strong and flesh is weak, the flesh will draw back the spirit and vice versa” he said and pledged to work with all stakeholders including the Rotary club to improve the welfare of every individual.
He also announced his intention to engage in unity talks with the Global Evangelical Church, which broke ranks with the E.P church some years ago.
Rev. Dr. Agidi further disclosed his intention to embark on a membership expansion drive so as to double the church’s membership by intensifying and extending the gospel of Christ to every ‘nook and cranny’.
Mr. Rockson Dogbegah, President of the Ho Rotary said the election of Rev. Dr. Agidi to the high office of Moderator of the E.P Church is symbolic to the club’s core value of ‘Service above self’, and congratulated him on his elevation.
He assured Rev. Dr. Agidi of the club’s unflagging support throughout his tenure in driving the socio-economic development of the region and Ghana as a whole.
