The Ministers' HandbookeBook - 2016
Ghanaian Christianity comprises different streams: the Roman Catholics, Methodists, Presbyterians, Anglicans and classical Pentecostals as well as the historically younger neo-Pentecostals or charismatics as they are popularly known in Ghana. Priests, pastors, ministers, deacons, church leaders and officers of all these recognizable strands of Christianity have over the years, admired the ministry of the Most Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, Apostle General of the Royalhouse Chapel churches worldwide. Quite a number of them have publicly declared their high regard for the excellent way in which weddings, funerals, induction and ordination ceremonies and other social functions are performed at Royalhouse Chapel. They have also expressed the need for a pastors' and ministers' handbook which will serve as a guide for conducting various social functions in the manner in which Royalhouse Chapel does them. This book is intended to meet that need. Its timeliness and importance lie in two basic facts: first, the scarcity of contemporary resources for weddings, funerals, and other occasions; second, the opportunities offered to pastors, ministers and deacons to reach out and minister to friends, families and loved ones of people who are wedded, bereaved or ordained. Very few occasions offer such great opportunities for a harvest of souls and pastoral care as do weddings, funerals and the other social functions that are covered in this book. On such occasions, people open their hearts to the Spirit of God in ways they have never done before. Through this handbook, the pastors or ministers on duty can prepare and avail themselves to be used by God as instruments of blessing, comfort, and encouragement. They can also be guided to offer professional and godly assistance at such functions. This is one of the hallmarks of the ministry of the Apostle General of the Royalhouse Chapel churches.
