House of Faith Ministries’ Outreach programme spearheaded by Latiff Lamour Agyemang has taken it out on pastors for showing little concern for the plight of society.
The pastor made the assertion when the House of Faith Ministries undertook a medical outreach at Hwediem close to Nkawie in the Atwima Nwabiagya district of the Ashanti Region.
The church screened for malaria and gave free medication to the community members as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations.
Speaking to Ultimate FM’s Thomas Asamoah on the side of the outreach Pastor Latiff Lamour insisted that several churches had gone asleep neglecting their social responsibilities to the people.
He pointed out, “As a matter of fact the church is asleep. The main focus of the church is to go out and bring souls into the kingdom but it seems all other activities of the church today is indoors. But that is not the purpose of the church. I think it is an error and it is not something that we have to tolerate.”
“These days when you see a church filled to capacity, it is not that the church is engaged in evangelism or outreach. But it is just that maybe someone who is already bought by the blood of Christ has seen something that his church probably doesn’t have and so that thing has attracted the person and not necessarily because the church went out and preached Christ to people,” he added.
A community member Maame Konadu who spoke on behalf of the residents thanked House of Faith Ministries for the medical screening and medications given without charge to the community.
