Dedication of the one-storey building which was officiated by the Haatso Area Head, Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe has a master bedroom ensuite, four other guest rooms (all ensuite), a furnished kitchen, a study room and a garage.
The District Estate Committee Chairman, Elder Augustine Sarpong, indicated that the building was 95% complete with outstanding works being largely external and landscaping works.
Elder Sarpong explained that “the building is a green building” because of its facilities. The building was going to be powered by solar energy. The lighting and water systems are going to rely mainly on power from the sun to function, he added.
Speaking at the event, Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe thanked the past Resident Ministers, the building committee and the entire membership of PIWC-Atomic for their enormous contribution towards the successful completion of the Mission House. “We thank the past Resident Ministers as well as the current Resident Minister for their support towards the construction of the building.” “We also thank the building committee members who sacrificed their time for this building and the entire membership of the PIWC Atomic”
Meanwhile, the Resident Minister of PIWC- Atomic, Apostle Samuel Oboubi Gyau and family is expected to move into the building within two weeks when the district’s rental tenancy runs out.
The PIWC-Atomic mission house project dates back to the creation of the district in October 2008. The new district initially inherited the rented mission house of the erstwhile PIWC-Accra located in Dansoman SSNIT flats area. It became apparent that the distance did not enhance the effectiveness of the resident minister.
Therefore an alternative residential accommodation led to the rental of house number 9 along the Atomic Down-Musuko road in Kwabenya in June 2009.
In order to ensure a permanent residential address, a suitable available land within reach of the church auditorium complex was purchased by efforts of some presbyters such as the Late Eld.Arc. Kofi Amponsah, Eld. Matthew Nkansah, Eld. Dr. Francis Afflu, Dcn. Kofi Owusu-Sekyere and the Late Arc. J.G.K. Abankwa.
After a number botched attempts the district eventually secured a plot of land in 2014. The construction of the five-bedroom Mission House begun in February 2018 following the sod-cutting ceremony on 23rd March, 2018 by the then acting Resident Minister, Aps. Dr. Emmanuel Kwesi Anim, on behalf of the Area Head.
Works then proceeded diligently till May 2021 when it got sufficiently completed for dedication.
In his brief remarks, the Resident Minister was full of appreciation to one member who paid for the construction of the entire roof structure and covering, a second member who took up the payment for the kitchen cabinets and all the wardrobes as well as all members of the church for their immense support for the project.
