Avoid sabotaging new ministry leaders – Pastor’s wife counsels women

Having observed the dwindling zeal of the church towards ministerial work, the wife of a branch minister of the Church of Pentecost has encouraged women to develop a deep love and commitment towards the work and the church at large.

Speaking on the topic “Commitment” at a prayer meeting organized by the Teshie-Nungua Area Women’s Ministry, Mrs Felicia Broohm urged the women to develop the kind of commitment that Ruth had towards her mother-in-law Naomi in book of Ruth 1:16-17.

“We should be ready to be committed to the Lord in all circumstances whether we get our problems solved or not. Ruth was ready to follow Naomi even if it meant she would not marry again,” the wife of Coco Beach District Minister said.

With hindsight of past experiences in the ministry, she noted that sometimes when ministry leaders are changed, people get hurt and change their attitude. Accordingly, she admonished the women to grow out of the negative attitude for the collective good of the church.

“Outgoing women leaders should not attempt to sabotage the work of incoming executives or sit aloof as if they are not concerned about what is happening in the ministry.”

Mrs. Boohm further urged deaconesses, officers’ wives, and ministry leaders to adopt a serving spirit and not to relegate service at the house of God to the background.

“As women leaders, it is our duty to clean the churches and make sure that people are comfortable in the house of God.

“These days, our deaconesses appear tired and are not participating in the cleaning services. Let’s try as much as possible to play our role. We must work if we want our rewards.

“When we were new on the job, we worked with all our hearts but now it appears our love has grown cold. Let us wake up to our responsibilities as women leaders and support the church for greater growth,” she said.

To conclude, the speaker admonished the women to desist from recommending to people prayer centres where they believe can offer quick solutions to their physical and spiritual problems, but rather lead them to the church.

“How can you leave our great God and pursue others for solutions? God is in our churches and is ready to solve our problems, we only have to keep on fasting and praying,” she admonished.
