Outgoing Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church of Ghana, The Most Reverend Dr Robert Aboagye-Mensah, has been elected a Vice President of the All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC), a statement issued in Accra on Tuesday said.
Rev Aboagye-Mensah is one of the newly-elected officers currently attending the first meeting of 2009, of the General Committee of the AACC, taking place at its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.
The statement said one of the main items on the agenda of the three-day meeting, which opened on Monday, was a strategic plan for 2009 to 2013.
Among other things, the Conference aims to establish a desk at the African Union so that its work can have a better impact.
Dr Aboagye-Mensah was elected Vice President for West Africa from 2009 to 2013, at the AACC's last General Assembly held in December 2008, in Maputo, Mozambique.
He is expected to operate mostly from the Conference's sub-office in Lome, Togo.
His term of office as Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church, Ghana, ends on September 30.
