The President of the Baptist Ministers’ Conference, Rev. Dr. Charles Owusu Ampofo, has emphasised the need for the President to assent to the LGBTQ+ Bill.

He said it is crucial for the president to assent and explained that the practice is “anti-scripture”. According to him, Christians are guided by the bible and that anything outside the bible is “anti-scripture”.

Rev. Dr. Ampofo was addressing the 61st Annual Ministers’ Refreshers’ Course, Retreat and Business Conference of the Ghana Baptist Convention at the Baptist Women’s Retreat and Resource Centre at Ejura, in the Ashanti Region, on Tuesday.

The theme of the Conference was: “Ministerial ethics, accountability and responsibility in the 21st century”

Rev. Ernest Thompson

The President of the Ghana Baptist Convention reminded the ministers of their oath at their ordination ceremonies that require them to be disciplined, ethical, accountable and responsible and to uphold their ministerial ethics.

He noted that there are bad nuts among the good, making it difficult for people to distinguish between a true Minister of God and a bad one.

On the prudent use of social media, Rev. Dr. Ampofo noted that inventions are intended for a noble course, but have become weapons of mass destruction because of wrong usage, and advised the ministers to educate their respective congregation on the use of social media to impact their lives positively.

Touching on the upcoming 2024 elections, Rev. Dr. Ampofo said elections should not be seen as war, for which reason the citizenry must be faithful to the country and go about the exercise peacefully and ensure that Ghana is intact after the elections since Ghanaians are not ready to migrate.

He further advised the media to conform to their ethics and be circumspect in their reportage and avoid exaggeration and sensationalism.

Rev. Dr. Ampofo expressed appreciation to Hon. Mrs. Irene Naa Torshie Addo-Lartey, Administrator of the District Assemblies Common Fund, as the Guest of Honour, for her great support for the ministry over the years.

Mrs. Irene Naa Torshie Addo-Lartey in turn thanked the church for the honour of inviting her to address such a pivotal topic.

She noted that Ethics are the cornerstone of our conducts and stressed that accountability is crucial and demands openness to the community for development.

She also cautioned politicians to be mindful of their speeches during the electioneering campaigns.

The Administrator of District Assemblies Common Fund assured that both the President and the vice President cherish the role of the church.

Rev. Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi, Chairman of the National Peace Council said since 72 percent of Ghanaians are Christians, it is the responsibility of pastors to advise their respective congregations to desist from insults to ensure peace and harmony among the citizenry and safeguard stability of the country.

Present at the conference were; Collins Ntim, MP Offinso North, Mr. George Kofi Baah, Director of Finance of the District Assemblies Common Fund, Rev. Enoch Nii Narh Thompson, Executive President, Ghana Baptist Convention and Rev. Steve Yenusom Wengam, General Superintendent, Assemblies of God, Ghana.
