LOUISVILLE (PNS) For three days this August more than 200 Ghanaian Presbyterian Women will gather together in New York City for the 14th annual Presbyterian Women’s Fellowship North American Conference.
The event, to be held Aug. 7-9, will bring together Ghanaian Presbyterian women from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the Presbyterian Church of Canada for worship and fellowship, and business sessions and educational workshops. The Rev. Terri Ofori, a member of the Advisory Committee for African Emerging Ministries, will deliver the keynote address and bring greetings.
“This gathering provides an amazing time for fellowship and education for these women from the PC(USA) and Presbyterian Church of Canada, and provides a unique opportunity for new immigrants from Ghana to deepen their connection to the church and the United States,” noted Sam Atiemo, associate for African Emerging Ministries.
The Presbyterian Women’s Fellowship aims to provide fellowship and support for women in the church and to provide educational opportunities and resources for those who wish to become leaders in the church.
