Rt. Rev. Dr. S.S Agidi called on the church not to hold back its efforts. “We must continue to in our quest to nurture the human resource of the nation.: He said.
Education as a medium through which the church reaches out to many across Ghana dates back to the genesis of the EP Church, which is located in nearly all the regions of Ghana.
In 2014, the call on the government of Ghana to return mission schools under its management back to the churches gathered momentum leading to the call from the Christian Council of Ghana signed by the then Signed by General Secretary, Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong.
