Accra, July 21, GNA – Deeper
Life Bible Church has launched the 22nd National Campus Congress, dubbed
“Conquerors 2017” in Accra to reach out to the University Communities to uplift
their spiritual lives.

The Congress, on the
theme, “raising up unconquerable intellectuals in contemporary times”, would be
held from August 2 to August 6, 2017 at Anyaa in Accra for those in the
southern sector and Brofoyedru in Kumasi for the Northern sector.

The congress would
target all tertiary students, lecturers, workers in campus communities, and all
who were connected to activities on the country’s campuses.

Pastor Francis Fosu,
National Campus Coordinator of Deeper Life Christian Ministry, said they chose
the theme based on the church’s conviction that intellectuals whose foundation
and rock was grounded in the unflinching faith in Jesus Christ would serve the
nation better and also be a great asset in the household of faith.

“Today life on campus
communities across the country raise a lot of questions which cast doubt on integrity
and uprightness of the thousands of undergraduates churned out yearly and the
remaining thousands who are yet to complete their studies.

“The devil today is
using the highly educated ones to champion all sorts of vices under the guise
of advocating human rights and reconstructing society,” he added.

Pastor Fosu said it
was in that light that Church had made it a mandate to meet the nation’s
intellectual community every year and influence them with the word of God to
enable them to become positive change makers who would capitalise on their
knowledge to lead millions to Christ.

He said the congress
was designed to handle the academic challenges of students, which force some of
them to resort to demeaning practices and other social vices.

He therefore,
congratulated the media for their continuous support and efforts over the years
in their attempt to change the society.

Dr Charles Ackah,
Senior Research Fellow, ISSER, University of Ghana, Legon, called for the
restructuring of the school’s curriculum to focus on spiritual upbringing of
the youth.

He said:” training the
minds of the future generations leaving their hearts, leads to breeding groups
of corrupt people”.

“If the foundation we
are building as a nation are destroyed, then there is no hope. We need to have
a solid foundation to build a glorious future for our youth. If nothing is done
to reverse these moral decays among the youth, the country will live to
regret,” he added.

Pastor Edward Kwaku
Duodu, National Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, expressed his
gratitude to the media for the tireless role in contributing to the success of
the congresses held over the years.
