NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Okore Ministries begins its “Everybody Needs Somebody” campaign, a mentoring initiative for the youth. The free event will take place at 6pm on Saturday, August 3, 2013 at the Apostolic Royal Assembly, 641 East 233rd Street, Bronx NY 10466. Special guests include John Sena (Ghana), Rev. Seth Amoateng (Florida), Ruth Cobb (New York), Ralph O’king (Oklahoma), Chris Gyamfi (New York), Joe Ametam and Jars of Clay. The Guest Speaker is Revivalist Kafui Agbesi (NY).
The Okore Ministries was founded by Jeffery Asiedu and Richard Anim. As teens, they dreamed of making a difference in their peers and their community.
“From the age 16 to 25, young men and young women are the most impressionable which can be dangerously detrimental or a wonderful opportunity depending on what serves as their motivation,” says Anim.
“We instill in our members the essence of mentorship, discipleship and spiritual discipline in order to become distinct leaders of our communities and on a larger scale, the world,” says Asiedu.
