Founder and Leader of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim has revealed that he will still be conducting counselling services for members despite the ban on church activities in the country as a result of the coronavirus (CODVID-19).
The move he disclosed will enable him to raise money to cater for the cost of running his television stations as well as pay workers who heavily depend on monies from Church activities including counselling sessions.
“The President has said social gatherings have been cancelled for a month. Jesus take the wheel…we came here because of the announcement by the President and we have no problem with his directive. My problem is the sick persons we pray for to get well. Our worry is how to cater for all these persons even though we can all pray in our individual homes”, he revealed on his channel monitored by MyNewGh.com.
According to him, he will cancel all church activities but will engage in counselling activities on a one-on-one basis for those who need it.
“I will engage in emergency counselling services in my churches. But we will not congregate, pray or conduct healing services as has always been the case. Everyone who comes for counselling must take a card so that the accrued money could be used to pay for the cost of the television channel”, he added.
He added “If you do not want me to engage on the counselling to raise money to cater cost television channel, then I will shut the station because I pay about $8,000 monthly”
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Sunday as part of measures in curtailing the further spread of the deadly Coronavirus banned all social gatherings including Church activities.
“All public gatherings, including conferences, workshops, funerals, festivals, political rallies, sporting events and religious activities, such as services in churches and mosques, have been suspended for the next four (4) weeks. Private burials are permitted, but with limited numbers, not exceeding twenty-five (25) in attendance”, he disclosed.
