“ALL OF MY TRAINING FOR MINISTRY HAS BEEN THROUGH THE POWERCLUB PROGRAMME!” This is the testimony of Douglas, a new pastor in Ghana. He attended one of our PowerClubs as a little boy. Now he is all grown up, and his testimony is MIND-BLOWING concerning the influence of PowerClubs! Douglas joined our PowerClubs a decade ago. He grew to become an Assistant Leader and later to the Senior Leader position. Four years ago, the Lord led Douglas to start a Church and has seen many souls saved and growing beautifully in Christ. Douglas and his wife, also a former PowerClub Leader, continue to mobilize for PowerClub Leadership Training and Outreach.
Our director in KIMI Ghana, Ps Francis Opoku, told us more: “Douglas told me; ‘at a time when there was leadership crisis in my former church, I thought it wise to mobilize the youth to pray. But the Leadership fought me. Then I spent time praying all by myself and then I heard the Lord calling me to step out and start the Kingdom Life Church.”
When Douglas discussed this with me, I intentionally (ignorant of how God was leading him though) put up a discouraging attitude. Douglas, however, was convinced he had heard the Lord and so he went on. One year later, I was shocked when he invited me to chair his anniversary thanksgiving. The church had grown with a beauty that was beyond the standard of the village churches.
Douglas then told me; “AS ALL MY TRAINING WAS FROM THE POWERCLUB TRAININGS AND I HAD NOTHING ELSE, I STARTED TEACHING THE CHURCH THE SAME THINGS I HAD GATHERED FROM THE POWERCLUBS PROGRAMME.”
Douglas wants all educated young people in his church to go through the PowerClub Training (his only Bible School so far).
He and his wife (also a former PC Leader) are also mobilizing other literates from different churches in the surrounding villages to go through the PC training. They are trusting God for a massive outreach to children in the villages around them.
May I not forget that they have also started a Christian school in their village. Not having been trained for formal Education of Children (Basic Education), they are almost doing another PowerClub. I am now stepping in to ensure parents get what they send their children in there for.
Douglas needs all our prayers and every possible support. He is his wife barely have enough to eat with their less than a year old daughter. But their passion is unstoppable. I love them.” ~Ps Francis.
Folks, this is what I [Becky] live for—testimonies like this, because what we do with children WORKS across cultural lines, denominational lines, and national lines, and now we are learning across kid/adult lines as well!!!
