A cross section of the graduates at the ceremony
The Teshie Nungua Area of the Church of Pentecost, under the leadership of Apostle Dr. Alfred Koduah, has graduated its second batch of students from the Pentecost skills Development Center (PSDC).
The graduation ceremony which took place recently at Emmanuel Kwadwo Kyei Memorial Temple, Baatsona, had 68 students from the four departments; Catering, Cosmetology, Fashion and ICT.
Delivering the welcome address, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the school who is also the Area Women’s Leader for the Teshie Nungua Area of the Church of Pentecost, Deaconess Cynthia Araba Siaw Agyepong, expressed gratitude to God for a milestone that the center had chalked and thanked the immediate Past Area head and wife, Prophet James Osei and Georgina Amaniampong for the support the Centre has received over the years.
She was also grateful to Apostle Dr. Alfred Koduah for also supporting the Centre since he took over as the Area Head last year.
Deaconess Mrs. Siaw Agyeopng indicated that since the inception of the center some three years ago, it has been able to empower young people with employable skills to start their own business and have also trained young people with the potential to let them be what they want to be in future.
She was full of praise to the graduating students and urged them on to work with the skills they have acquired.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Area Head, Apostle Dr. Alfred Koduah stressed the need for parents to educate their children, saying, “Education is very important and if Christians want to break the cycle of poverty, then there is the need to educate our children.”
Apostle Koduah encouraged Christians not to delight in poverty but to strive to educate their children so they can compete with others children in this postmodern era.
He also encouraged the grandaunts to work with their skills and not stay at home waiting to be employed by the government.
