The Diocesan Chaplains for the Association of Methodist Men’s Fellowships have been inducted into office by the Presiding Bishop of Methodist Church Ghana, Most Rev. Titus K. Awotwi Pratt, at Bantama Ebenezer Methodist chapel, Kumasi. He was assisted by the Connexional Chaplain, Very Rev. Nana Appau Gyekye, the Connexional Men’s Chairman, Bro. George Opare Baidu and Bro. George Omane, past Men’s Connexional Chairman.
In his post induction address, the Presiding Bishop reminded the congregation that, as a result of his extensive travel on horseback to preach the Gospel throughout the United Kingdom, the founder of Methodism, John Wesley is synonym with evangelism. “It is a heritage we have to embrace.
