The second African General Superintendent of Assemblies of God, Ghana,Rev. Dr. Simon Asore and one-time Member of the Council of State has passed on.
A family Spokesman told newsmen that he died at the age 76 after a protracted illness.
Rev. Asore is best remembered for his statemanship and unyielding pursuit of peace.
In his unique position as Member of the Council of State and President of the Ghana Pentecostal Council, he is on record as being the voice that clamed religious tensions, particularly between Christians and African Traditional Religion adherents over the issue of the ban on noise making during festivals.
By his role, he contributed to inter-faith co-existence in the country.
In an upcoming book on the history of Assemblies of God, Rev. Asore is cited for bringing about major constitutional changes in the church.
It was during his tenure as General Superintendent that the church’s constitution was amended to, among others, give full status to local Assemblies of the church, thereby ending the era of affiliate and associate churches.
