The Youth of the Anglican Church have been advised to present themselves as living sacrifices to God in order to experience Glory of God.
Mr. Charles Codjoe-Addy, member of the Diocesan Children and Youth Board made the call when he addressed the Accra East Archdeaconry (AEA) of the Anglican Young People’s Association (AYPA) 7th Biennial Delegate Conference on Saturday, 18th October 2014 at Holy Gabriel Anglican Church, Kotobabi – Accra.
He urged the Youth to be aware of the effects to social media in their lives and that of the Church.
The one-day conference under the theme “Will Your Anchor Hold in the Storms of Life” saw delegates from the various AYPA Branches within the AEA under one umbrella to find lasting solutions to the challenges facing the Association and also elect new executive members for the next tenure.
Present to grace to event were Venerable Seth Sackey-Archdeacon of Accra East and Guest of Honour for the day, Mr. Benjamin Ayitey-Okine – Former Accra East AYPA President and some Diocesan Executives of the AYPA.
