MT. Olivet Methodist Men’s Dansoman Circuit fellowship holds first annual general meeting
The Association of Methodist Men’s Fellowship (AMMF) of the Dansoman Accra Diocese of the Methodist Church Ghana, over the weekend, held their first annual general meeting.
The meeting on the theme, “The transformed man in Jesus Christ ”, was, among other things, to assess the strengths and challenges of the association and the diocese, since its separation from the Accra Diocese in 2023.
Jacob S. Arthur Chairman of the Dansoman Accra Diocese, in his address lauded the service and dedication shown by brothers of the AMMF since their separation.
He stated that the numerical strength of the diocese had increased membership This, he added, was as a result of the creation of three new circuits and six new branches.
Hon. Jacob S. Arthur noted that aside the growth in number, evangelical engagements, connexional activities, capacity building workshops and diocesan games, the diocese continued to face immense challenges.
“The difficulty in attracting the youth and men in the church to join the men’s fellowship, slow pace of circuits in fulfilling financial obligations to the diocese and the late submission of quarterly and annual reports are among some of the challenges we as a diocese and the AMMF face,” he stated.
The diocese chairman pleaded with members to be proactive in church duties to see the growth of the AMMF and the diocese to increase the reach of the church in spreading God’s word.
Hon. Jacob S. Arthur Chairman Circuit, speaking on behalf of the men of the Dansoman Accra Diocese, urged members of the AMMF to avail themselves to the service of the church.
He asked them to prepare themselves to live and behave like Jesus with respect to the theme, adding that, “Jesus was selfless and always ready to help others, and this is what you all must do.”
Hon. Jacob S. Arthur stressed the need for all Christians to question themselves before they took any action and to ensure that wherever they found themselves, whether in school, work or in church, they should be agents of change and pristine role models for fellow Christians and non-Christians alike.
