The General Overseer, Elders and Members of Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC) last Sunday took delivery of Nine (9) brand new 64-seater TATA buses at the church premises in Ayigya, a suburb of Kumasi.
At a brief unveiling ceremony, Reverend Ransford Obeng, General Overseer of CCC dedicated the buses to the Lord.
Praying, Rev Obeng asked for God’s blessings on those who will drive the buses as well as members and non-members who would board the bus to church or for evangelism purposes.
He asked that those who are put in charge adhere to strict discipline and maintenance measures so as to keep the buses in good shape at all times.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper, Rev Obeng said the bus initiative is the brain child of the church and it is aimed at helping members get to church on time as they would ply almost all routes in the metropolis to convey people to CCC on Sundays and Weekdays.
He noted members of CCC will pay for the buses and had raised the money to buy them through the support of partners in the banking industry.
Members of CCC, he revealed belong to communities where special bible studies christened School for Christian Development (SCD) are organized for them every Sunday at church, adding every community has been tasked to raise an amount for the purchase of a bus each.
The church, Rev Obeng revealed want to step up its evangelism drive and this require that buses are made available for members to reach out to people who have not heard about Christ Jesus.
‘’CCC is a mission focused church and the idea of the buses was to ensure we use same to reach out to the world as well as convey members to church on meeting days’’, Rev Obeng opined.
Reverend Obeng advised drivers who would have the opportunity to use the buses to maintain them very well as they would their own.
He also tasked them to go a step further to ensure the interior and exteriors of the vehicles are kept clean at all times.
Since they will be using God’s property, Rev Obeng urged them to put up good behaviors on the road by heeding to all road instructions so that they can best reflect the values of the church to the world.
The CCC leader urged members not to abuse the drivers or indulge in vain conversations while on board the bus since their actions will portray whether they are good ambassadors for Christ or not.
‘’I urge, both the drivers who will have the opportunity to drive these buses as well as members who will board the bus to church or for evangelism and other social functions to conduct themselves well so they can be worthy ambassadors of Christ’’, Rev Obeng appealed.
