Churches in Ghana have resolved to intentionally identify, promote, and strategically support political actors who have proven moral standards at all levels of the political space.
It is part of plans of the church to use a well – coordinated and strategic approach to encourage Christians with high moral integrity to participate in politics at all levels of governance in the country.
This is relative to the broader agenda of the church to influence sound morality in national development.
The Church pledged commitment to “champion the inclusion of morality at all levels of our educational structure.In this regard, they recommended that the STEM flagship Program should be expanded to include Morality; thus, Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Morality (STEMM)”.
These were contained in a communique issued by Apostle Eric Kwabena Nyamekye ,President, Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) who also doubles as Chairman of The Church of Pentecost on September 22,2023 at the end of the 2023 All Ministers Annual Conference (2nd Edition) held at Pentecost Convention Center at Gomoa Fetteh.
In recognition of the critical role of the Church in the development agenda of the nation, the conference was held under the theme: “Moral Vision and National Development:The Role of The Church”.
Over two thousand (2000) Reverend Ministers and Christian Leaders drawn from the various Christian Ecumenical Councils and representing the broadest spectrum of the Church in Ghana (Protestant, Catholic, Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches as well as Para-Church Organizations), participated under the auspices of The Church of Pentecost (CoP) as one of the follow-ups to the National Development Conference, held from July 26 to 27, 2023 under the theme, ‘Moral Vision and National Development’.
Among the recommendations after the conference was also for the Church to invest in building the capacity of Christlike and morally sound media personnel and provide the needed logistics with an intentional agenda to provide ethical and quality content in order to set the pace for media discourse and agenda setting.
