I Give Back to Society to Show My Appreciation to God - Pastor Seth Quansah

The founder and Lead Pastor of Highest Praise Prayer Centre (HPPC) at Nkontrodo in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem Metropolitan Area, Pastor Seth Quansah has organised a free Health Screening Day for the inhabitants of Amisano within the same Municipality. 

Pastor Seth believes that If God gave his only begotten son to come and die for us sinners then, this is his token to show appreciation to God for how far He has brought Him. He is also passionate about serving the local community through practical means to meet the holistic needs of the vulnerable and marginalised in society. 

The Health Screening took place at Amisano today, Wednesday 21st April 2021. 

Speaking to this author on the sidelines of the programme, Pastor Quansah shared that “sometimes people cannot afford a simple blood pressure check up or medication, which could save their life and prevent serious illness". 

“Both I and my wife, Pastor Amelia felt led to offer the Amisano community such an opportunity to be able to have a proper check up and offer them some free medication as well."

Further he said, it is at such programmes where people are encouraged to interact and learn tips on how to live a healthy life physically and mentally to achieve a holistic wellbeing. 

Alongside the free health screening, Pastor Seth added that they also offer free counselling to those who need it and also pray for those who might need some spiritual assistance.

In addition he said, often times there is an erroneous impression about “Men of God” always taking from the flock and not giving back. "We cannot give to each and every individual, so myself and my wife together with the church felt the need to organise this programme so a wide variety of people could benefit from it". "Not all pastors take from the flock! There are others who give to God's people" he stated. 

Quoting scripture to support his stance, he referenced Acts 4:32-37 "All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.

With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. 

For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.

Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”), sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet."

To this, Pastor Seth said, they are giving back to the community and not only church members but whosoever might need their help. Because in those times, people sold what they had and shared it among themselves.

This is what the church can do to assist the people of God and also to draw them closer to Christ.

There are spiritual needs where prayers and direction are needed and there are some things like ill health which health screenings such as this can also be beneficial to God's people.

The Lead Pastor of Highest Praise Prayer Centre thanked the inhabitants of Amisano, his congregation and all who took time out of their schedule to participate in the programme. 

Later he added that, but for the support of his wife and the church, the programme wouldn't have been successful. 

"I'm taking this opportunity to appeal to all well meaning Ghanaians and corporate institutions to come to our aid so we can serve a larger population next year".

Finally, Pastor Seth took the opportunity granted him to thank his spiritual parents and mentors, Bishop Michael Hutton-Wood,Founder of House of Judah City Church, UK and Pastor Betty Ohene-Apraku, Assistant Pastor Dominion Centre, UK.

Also to all friends who donated and supported us and especially to Yvonne Charity Etsiakoh, Louisa Vandyke, Francisca Gifty Quayson, Gloria Amoaning, Cynthia Hayfron and all other members from the Nurses Clique who assisted in making the programme a success.
