The Lead Pastor of the Cedar Mountain International Church in Accra, Rev Dr Stephen Yenusom Wengam, has been given the nod to lead the church as its General Superintendent.
This was made public known during the 30th biennial General Council Meeting of the church.
The event which was attended by over 3000 members of the church was held at the University of Cape Coast.
Rev Dr Wengam who is 50 years will be taking over from Rev Professor Yaw Frimpong-Manso who has been superintending over the church for for 12 years.
Rev Dr Wengam in his victory speech indicated that his immediate step is to “unite Assemblies of God, Ghana for true spiritual revival and greatness .”
He said he brings in “ visionary and progressive leadership of integrity, shift, speed, open heavens, and fulfillment of the Great Commission.”
The Revered Minister recalled that the Assemblies of God, Ghana used to be the leading Pentecostal Church in Ghana.
He added that the church was the first “to establish a Bible School, a Radio Ministry, use social action activities to win souls, and transform communities. It was also the first church of Assemblies of God worldwide to produce a President and a Chief Justice of the Republic of Ghana”.
Rev Wengam assured all and sundry of the church that “we will regain our position to become the leading Pentecostal Church.”
“Ours is a church destined for greatness and greatness is our portion. Remember, we are products of the Azusa Street Revival.”
Rev Dr Wengam catalogued his journey to the highest office of Assemblies of God, Ghana indicating that it has been “ rough and tough as I endured odds, resistance, false accusations and misrepresentations.”
The new Superintended of the church expressed his profound appreciation to God for raising him for that assignment “it’s a victory for the ordinary local pastor who may never become District Pastor, Regional Superintendent or Executive Presbytery Member but who now has hope that indeed God still raises Davids from obscurity to prominence. The lesson to all is that we should not put the law above grace.”
