Columbus Ghanaian Holds End-of-Year Revival

Story by Francis Tuffour

The youth and young adults from the English service of the Columbus Ghanaian church recently held an end-of-year church revival. The event was a culmination of the church's yearlong efforts to strengthen the spiritual growth of the youth and community outreach. The focus was on renewal, embarking on the Christian journey and sharing the message of salvation.

The revival was a spiritually uplifting and transformative experience for the 130 young people and invited guests. The event comprised a series of sermons and prayer sessions. Samuel Adjei, thechurch’s associate pastor, led the revival, themed, “Journey with Me.” The goal was to help the young people end the year on a good note and get them ready and focused on the upcoming year. The church served free meals and presented gifts to attendees every night.

The heart of the revival was the daily worship services, where the youth and young adults gathered to praise and seek the presence of the Lord. Speaker Adjei was dynamic and inspiring, delivering compelling sermons centered on themes like taking things gradually, seizing opportunities, breaking bad habits, and always being joyful in the Lord. Church leaders say the messages resonated with those who attended, leading many to reflect on their spiritual journey. They devoted time to praying for the needs of the congregation and the broader community.

At the end of the revival, six young people accepted Jesus through baptism, totaling 19 baptisms in 2023. After the worship service, attendees enjoyed a social night, which included games, contests, music and assorted foods.

To crown the end of the year, the church conducted a night service on New Year’s Eve with special prayers, uplifting music, powerful testimonies and praises to God. Attendees received a special consecration to make 2024 a year of winning and excelling.
