The General Superintendent of Assemblies of God Ghana, Rev Stephen Wengam, has paid glowing tribute to the church's contributions to national development. 

He mentioned in particular, AG Ghana's contribution to education development in Ghana with about 350 schools across the country, the establishment of street children rehabilitation centres and the provision of relief for the distressed in society through the Assemblies of God Care (AG Care) amongst others in the country. 

"AG Ghana continues to produce quality human resources in politics, the judiciary, the medical field and all other sectors of Ghana's economy," he noted.

Rev Wengam made these comments when he led a seven-member delegation from the Assemblies of God Ghana headquarters to pay a courtesy call on the Inspector General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare in Accra. 

The meeting was to introduce the new leadership of the church to the IGP.

The delegation also discussed matters of national interest and sought areas of collaboration between the police and the church towards national development. 

The General Superintendent commended the IGP for his forthrightness and visionary leadership which has improved the image of the police service.

He further outlined the vision of the new leadership christened 'The Transformation Agenda' majoring on massive evangelisation of Ghana, adding that the construction of the Assemblies of God Centenary Village, administrative and structural reforms will be brought to bear.

He said the church will pursue intense revival and the improvement of the welfare of rural pastors amongst others.

The IGP while expressing his appreciation for the visit bemoaned the growing level of indiscipline in society, despite Christians being about 70% of the population. 

He admonished the church to work harder to transform society.

The delegation also paid a courtesy call on the Director-General of National Signal Bureau, Mr Kwabena Adu Boahene, who is a deacon and member of Assemblies of God Church.

The General Superintendent commended him and the laity for their contribution towards the growth and development of Assemblies of God in Ghana.

Mr Adu-Boahene requested more prayers for the security agencies and the country, especially in these challenging times.
