The Church of Pentecost has banned members from taking sexually provocative pre-wedding shoots.
This was announced on Saturday by the General Secretary of the Church, Apostle Nana Yaw Kumi, at the Church’s Global Minister’s Conference at the Pentecost Convention Center (PCC) – Gomoa Fetteh near Kasoa in the Central Region.
This is to encourage decency, the church has justified.
“During the pre-engagement time, under the guise of courting, they would be taking all sorts of pictures and spread it all over the place, and the pictures suggest they are already married,” Apostle Kumi stated.
“You would realise that where they are touching and what they are doing are things that are supposed to be done by married couples. So we really want to discourage that… some are even bold enough to bring it on the day of the celebration of the marriage, you see them on the screen – somebody has raised the lady, sitting on his lap, touching this place and all that. We really want to discourage it that is what mean by modestly and decently.”
The church has also discouraged members from serving alcoholic beverages at events organised by members of the church.
