A Theologian and Executive Member of the Dominion College of Bishops, Dr. Nathaniel Ashong-Dennis has called on the clergy, to focus on propagating the gospel and preach peace as the elections approach.
He said Ghana claims to have a higher percentage of its population being Christians, yet violence associated with political and electoral issues are recorded every election year.
He was speaking at the Second Induction of the Bishops of Bishops of the Dominion College of Bishops in Accra
Dr. Ashong-Dennis, therefore, urged men of God to be circumspect in their utterances and help maintain the peace the nation is enjoying.
The Dominion college of Bishops was born out of the vision to bring divine order to the body of Christ due to influx of Bishops in the charismatic Churches, but lacks unity, direction and voice.
The college determined to gather people or ministries with similar vision and mission to create a congenial atmosphere for growth.
It also seeks to make resources available to create opportunities for fellowship, training and other activities designed to build, maintain and sustain the vision of the individual.
This year’s induction ceremony was marked with a call on the graduants to make a difference in society as consecrated men of God.
An Executive Member of the College, Dr. Nathaniel Ashong-Dennis urged them to portray the life of Jesus Christ and help foster peace in the country.
One of the inductees and a Managing Editor of the the Religious Department of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, Bishop Election Rev. Albert Ken Dapatem talked about the importance of men of God acquiring formal training in their calling.
He said all men of God should be satisfied with their field of calling and not strive to be what they are called to become.
In all, one archbishop, five senior bishops and five apostles were inducted.
