Yesterday, the Graphic Showbiz visited Ofori Amponsah’s church, the Family of Faith and Love , to find out the feeling and atmosphere since the decision of their leader was made public.
Despite Ofori Amponsah’s absence in church yesterday because he had other equally engagement elsewhere, the members of his church seemed to be in high spirits during church service.
According to Godfred Frimpong, a member of Ofori Amponsah’s church who spoke with Showbiz after church service, he said that he sees nothing wrong with his pastor going back to secular music.
He said, “if other pastors can talk about love issues on air, why can’t his pastor do same through music?”
“No one was there when God called him and I know my pastor is genuine. Pastor Alewa or whatever he is called now is not a bother to me since Ofori Amponsah himself is not bothered by those comments,” he added.
To another member, Osafo Samuel, the best thing Ghanaians can do for Pastor Ofori Amponsah is to pray for him and not judge him.
“I have heard a lot of things about my pastor but that is not the reason why I would quit the church. I will be disappointed with any church member who leaves because of what is happening now,” he said.
A lady congregant who pleaded anonymity said only God can understand their pastor and not humans. According to her, God knows what he wants to use Ofori Amponsah for so no one should judge him.
For Philip Adjei, “so far as Ofori is doing the work of God, he only prays that He keeps him alive for people to see the plans He has for him.”
Philip who described Ofori Amponsah as a very strong person said, “I would have collapsed under the bashing my pastor is receiving from people if I were in his shoes. Pastor Amponsah is a very strong man to take all the comments people are passing about him.”
One of his junior pastors said he was surprised at the turn out today despite what is going on.
“I really did not expect this number of people in church yesterday. I must say I am really surprised at the turn out, I thought most of the members will not come but I very happy they did,” he added.
