Action Chapel International Ministries (ACIM) General Overseer and the Presiding Archbishop, Nicholas Duncan-Williams has revealed to his congregants what motivated him to enter ministry and that money was not his prime motivation. 

"The ministry is not about money. If you want to make money and you're a pastor, resign and go and find a job. Ministry is not about money, ministry is not a job, ministry is a calling" he stated.

According to him, when God called him, there are people in his church who know how he begun. He added that someone like Archbishop Dag Heward-Mills knew his beginnings and the fact that he was living in the boys quarters of his father's house at Airport Residential area. "That is about some forty years ago."

"When I started ministry, I didn't have Trassaco in mind. I didn't have anything I have in mind. Money wasn't that which drove me, my passion was souls. It was the ministry" he revealed.

The Archbishop said that, he hadn't yet loved his passion but he has challenges and he is dealing with issues and fighting through and which necessitates that he must be crucifying his body everyday. 

He added walking "With God is not a one time thing" and the ability to overcome isn't in a day but that overcoming should be everyday. It would be a joke for anyone to think, you need just a day to overcome.

"Some days you do well, some other days you don't do well but it is a constant thing. You keep pushing, you keep pushing, you keep pushing" he explained.

Continuing he added that, Paul said, the things I want to do, I cannot do them but, the things I don't want to do is what I find myself doing. He continued, I struggle, but I crucify my flesh everyday on daily basis.

He said this in a sermon delivered at his church monitored in Facebook post by F. A. Boateng. 

In concluding, he advised his church members to be careful and also realise that, the battles of life are fought on daily basis and not a one time event.
