About 50 pastors of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ghana (ELCG), a member of the International Lutheran Council (ILC), attended the opening session of the pastors’ conference held at the ELCG’s seminary in Accra, Ghana.

Pastors Conference and Ordination Nov 2015 2

The pastors’ conference has 6 sessions scheduled over 2 days. Session 1: Preaching of the Saving Gospel by Rev. Steven Schumacher, Session 2: Leadership in the 21st Century by Rev. Solomon S. Ayagri, Session 3: Understanding Prayer by Ps. John S. Donkoh, Session 4: Creation by Rev. Dr. Albert Collver, Session 5 was originally supposed to have been done by Rev. Dale Kaster but due to illness the Rev. Dr. George Black will present instead, and Session 6: ELCG The Way Forward by the Rt. Rev. Dr. Paul Kofi Fynn. The presentation most significant to the immediate future of the ELCG is Bishop Fynn’s which we will cover  in more detail tomorrow.

Although the seminary was dedicated just on 2 February 2014, the ELCG has completely repainted the seminary as part of its ongoing maintence program to keep various church properties in good condition. Arguably, the seminary looks better today than it did when it was brand new on its dedication day.
