The Youth of seven Apostle Areas; Kumasi, Dunkwa, Wiawso, Sunyani, Konongo, Techiman and Bolgatanga met at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, for the annual Youth Camp. This was after the Youth camp of five Apostles Areas at the University of Cape Coast the previous week. The Youth Camp was held from Thursday 10th to 13th August 2017.
It was under the theme: Glory be to God our Father (the purpose of our calling).
The Apostles present were Samuel Oppong-Brenya, Amos Osei-Du, Benjamin Darko, Edward Hayford Nzimah, Otchere Ayarkwa, George Nortey, Paul Yaw Kyeremeh and Samuel Arthur. Also present were Bishop Charles Kesse and all District Leaders in the seven Apostle Areas.
Various programs were conducted for the Youth. The programs included discussions on the Apostle's Creed and Holy Communion, Health Talk on general diseases and Relationship and Marriage. The Youth were very privileged to be taken through a career seminar by the Chief Executive Officer of Public Sector Reform in Ghana, Mr Kusi Boafo. On Saturday, the Youth embarked on a health walk, games and finally, Bible Quiz.
The summit of the Youth program was the divine service conducted by Apostle Samuel Oppong Brenya on Sunday the 13th August, 2017. The text chosen was from Proverbs 8:32 “Now therefore hearken unto me, ye children; for blessed are they that keep my ways”.
The Apostle admonished the Youth to strain for every word from the altar of grace and to consider these words soberly. He quoted Acts 17:11 and Psalm 1:1-3 to buttress this point. He said hearing and thinking about something means little, “You must change your life by what you hear in order to profit from it; the scripture should affect your life”. He said the youth must hear the word and put it into practice – dwelling more on James 1:21-25.
The attendance recorded was 2895.
