The Moderator said the lives of Christians should be living testimonies of what authentic Christian faith and practice is and impact greatly on Christians.

He urged the new Presbytery Chairperson to ensure that during his tenure of office more people would come to know Christ than ever before and cautioned him against anything that could bring the name of Jesus Christ and Christianity in general into disrepute.

The Right Rev Omenyo advised the new Presbytery Chairperson to sow seeds of evangelism and love among the congregations.

He called on the people to support the chairperson to succeed and raise the image of the Presbytery at all levels.

Rev Dr Anokye Nkansah in an address thanked the Church members and the people of Asante Akyem for the confidence reposed in him and pledged that he would work hard to ensure that the Presbytery moves from the current status to another higher level.

Rev Anokye Nkansah commended former the chairpersons of the Presbytery for his dedication and exemplary leadership, which had made the Presbytery as it is now.

He promised to implement the mission, vision, strategy and development plans of the Presbytery, and to promote evangelism to win more souls for Christ.
