The celebration was held to recognize Prof. Ato Essuman, a three-term Council of State member and the Methodist Church of Ghana’s second Lay President, for his tremendous contributions to the church and the country as a whole.

The WAEC Chairman, Prof. Essuman, took use of the occasion to urge harmony and collaboration between church laity and clergy.

The President of Trinity Theological Seminary, Legon, The Most Rev. J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu, spoke as the event’s guest speaker and gave a very instructive talk on the subject,

Ecological stewardship, human destiny, and development in Ghana: The Earth is the Lord’s.

Because Christians are stewards of the environment and the things God created, he stressed the importance of sustainable practices and the wise use of natural resources.

The Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of Ghana, the Administrative Bishop, the Lay President, Members of the Council of State, the President of the National House of Chiefs, and other bishops and clergy from the Methodist Church of Ghana were among the distinguished guests who attended the event.

Together with his wife, Professor Sally Essuman, son, Kow Abaka Essuman, and daughters-in-law, Lady-Ann and Michelle Essuman, Prof. Essuman was accompanied by his family.

During his thank-you speech, Kow Abaka Essuman cited a notable passage from the lecture: “We are, because creation is, and as a result of creation being, we are.”

This phrase encapsulated the lecture’s main point and acted as a rallying cry for everyone in the audience to protect the environment and cooperate in the pursuit of a sustainable future.


The speech honored Paa Sir S.H. Amissah, the first Vice President of the Methodist Church Ghana Conference, and it was an appropriate memorial to his legacy.

For planning such a successful and influential event, the Methodist Church of Ghana’s Lay Movement Council deserves praise.
