Thanksgiving Service for the family of Pastor and Deaconess Ottong

Share This

On Sunday, the 4th of March 2018, the family of Pastor (Prof.) and Deaconess (Prof) J. G. Ottong went to church to celebrate their Send-forth/valedictory service after a period of meritorious service in God’s vineyard. The service took place at the Apostolic Church (Amika District Headquarters), Calabar, Cross Rivers State.

The Chairman of the ceremony, Pastor J. I. Enya, in his Opening remarks noted that the Pastor (Prof) Ottong was the first District Pastor of the Amika Assembly and has been consistent in service for the last 6 years. Taking his scriptural reading from Titus 3 verse 13, he told the congregation that they were duty bound to provide for the material requirements of their pastors as they sojourn from one station to the other. He further drew from Galatians 6 verses 9-10 and charged the church “not to grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith”.
