- According to the chairman of the church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, such ceremonies should be simple and less expensive in order to save money
The Chairman of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has advised members of the church to cease the organization of expensive and lavish marriage ceremonies with immediate effect.
Apostle Nyamekye in a circular read in all assemblies of the Church, stated that all the marriage ceremonies in the church ought to be simple and not unnecessarily expensive.
He urged would-be couples to always ensure that they organized very short engagement ceremonies so as to save money.
“Pre-marital relationships, customary marriage rites (engagement) and weddings should be done modestly and decently to glorify God,” the circular stated.
The directive, YEN.com.gh understands forms part of the numerous reforms the church was undertaking to make the church attractive to mostly the youth.
Apostle Nyamekye also encouraged elders of the church to attend the engagement ceremonies of members which is now seen as the preserve of the family members.
The Church of Pentecost is known to be one of the few Pentecostal churches which involves itself in the marriages of its members.
Persons seeking to marry members of the church have always complained of unnecessary interference from the church and as such abstained from proposing to members from the Church of Pentecost.
Persons who however could not withstand the lengthy marriage procedure, ended up abandoning the church to go and marry elsewhere.
