The True Ownership Of Church by Hollicom(m): 11:18pm On Dec 17, 2018
#Ownership of church...."My husband willed the church to me,I am co funder" - Late Cleric’s wife
storms church, disrupts service.
16122018.

There was chaos at a
Pentecostal church yesterday when the late pastor’s wife
stormed the church to disrupt the service and claim ownership of the church.

The incident occurred at the Heirs Church at Bubuashie in Accra, Ghana as the wife of late Rev George Akwasi Nketia
claimed her husband willed the church to her thus no one including the pastors have no right to run the church.

Adom News’ Isaac Amoako who witnessed the scene reported that, a pastor was delivering a
sermon when Mrs. Nketia and her children stormed the church accusing all pastors of treating them unfairly.

Efforts by the church
leadership to calm the
aggrieved wife and children
proved futile as they claimed
they are now the new owners.

But for the intervention of a CID
officer who ordered them out
and closed the church, Isaac
said the situation could have
been bloody.

Explaining the church’s
position, Secretary, Kwame
Wereko said the widow of their
late pastor is acting out of
emotions.

He said though the late Rev.
Nketia had served the church
for the past 13 years, he does
not own the church.

“The church was built with the
hard earned monies of church
members; Rev. Nketia did not
contribute a penny so he cannot
will it to his wife” he opined.

Mr. Wereko maintained that,
the decision by Osofo Maame
Nketia to disrupt church service
is borne out of malice.

“She brought other pastors
outside the church to ordain her
pastor which is against the rule
of the church. There is no way
we will hand over the church to
her; it’s not her husband’s
property” he added.
