The Bishop of the Northern Accra Diocese of the Methodist church of Ghana, Rt.Rev Prof. Joseph Edusa-Eyison has called on churches to use innovative ways such as the use of social media for effective evangelism.

Rt. Rev. Prof. Edusa-Eyison also urged churches to consider preaching in local languages, rather than English.

These according to him are effective and efficient ways of evangelism.Speaking at the 1st Annual Synod of the Northern Accra Diocese of the Methodist Church of Ghana, Rt. Rev. Prof.  Edusa-Eyison called on churches to focus their evangelism on the youth because they are the future of the nation.

The Northern Accra Diocese of the Methodist church of Ghana was inaugurated on December 2, 2018, with its headquarters at Madina.

The maiden Synod which is a conference of the leadership of the church at which key decisions are taken to forge ahead in the future.

The Theme focused on Intensifying the church’s teaching ministry for disciple making.

The Bishop of the Northern Accra Diocese of the church, Rt Rev Prof. Edusa-Eyison urged church leaders to ensure they own and operate social media handles to reach a wider audience with their evangelism.

“All circuits are encouraged to have email addresses and computers and all ministers and encouraged to be on some social media platforms own personal computers and be computer savvy. This will aid in our growth in an attempt to become the pace setters for others to follow”

He explained why he felt it neccesary for churches to preach in local languages.

“In theology we know that about 70% to 80% of sermons that are internalised are preached in the mother tongue.You may speak nice English but when they speak your language (local language)you internalise it better. It is for each church to determine which (local) language it will want to use”

Rt. Rev.  Prof. Edusa-Eyison called for more collaboration between government and the church in the educational sector.
