Before the re-demarcation of the Apostle Areas in Ghana Nkawkaw was part of the Koforidua Apostle Area. Nkawkaw was carved to create a new Apostle Area which is now cared for by Apostle Andrews Boakye. The former Koforidua Apostle area is now under Apostle Robert Asampong.
Apostle Oppong-Brenya’s first visit was a divine service for Ministers and their families at Nkawkaw on the 13th of August 2016. The Apostle based his sermon on 1 Corinthians 16:19. “The Churches in Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the Church that is in their house.” He urged the Ministers and their families to accord greater importance to the Church at home and act as effective instruments in the care of the congregations entrusted to them. At the divine service two Shepherds and a Community Evangelists were ordained. Three hundred and fifty Ministers and their families attended the divine service.
At Kyebi the text word was Luke 8:14. “And that which fell among thorns are they which when they have heard, go forth and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.” The Apostle reminded the congregation that it is not only cares and everyday problems of life that can distract us from our faith but also riches and pleasures of life.
He compared the days of Noah, Lot and our present generation. In the days of Noah they were feasting and taking wives and getting married. In the days of Lot they were feasting and trading as well as planting and building. In our generation increasing secularism, occultism, Spiritism and esoteric thoughts are the order of the day.
The Apostle said no man may be a servant to two masters, stressing that we cannot be servants of God and wealth quoting Luke 16:13.
One hundred and twenty four members attended the divine service
