Welcome to the personality show where we bring your way great people of God, as part of our duties we bring to you a fine gentleman from the Music and Drama Committee (King’s Vine). Meet Mr. Dadzie Christian. Please relax, read and enjoy what he has to share with us.
I am Dadzie Christian, a second year student reading Petroleum Engineering. I currently reside at Baby Brunei, room 60J. I am a member of the Music and Drama Committee (King’s Vine), and precisely in King’s Praise.
Brief us of your educational background
I had my basic education at Holy Child Roman Catholic Basic School, Sakumono – Tema. In my final year in upper primary, I became the Library Prefect and in my final year in JHS, I served as a sectional prefect, SRC General Secretary as well as the Vice President of the Maths, Science and IT Club.
From there, I moved to Mfanstipim School, Cape Coast, where I had my secondary education. By God’s grace, I served as the Scripture Union (SU) Librarian as well as the Joyful Way Music Director. I am currently a second year student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology reading Petroleum Engineering.
Please Why KNUST?
Well honestly, coming to KNUST was not really as a result of preference but primarily because in our year, the KNUST admission list came out before that of University of Ghana and by grace, I had a good program.
And why Petroleum Engineering?
Petroleum was not my first program choice actually. Human Biology was my first. So Petroleum was one of my choices primarily because I wanted a choice outside the health sciences for a diversity, but God had a plan indeed. Though it was not my preference, through the encouragement of my family, others in the field, friends, as well as a one-year exposure to the field, I have come to realize that it is a very interesting field and goes beyond what we see at the surface level.
Describe your experience here in KNUST.
Well, life on campus has been interesting so far. I have come to see it as a preparatory ground for the future. There have been times of happiness, sadness, tiredness, hunger and all but so far, so good! I’ve had the chance to meet several people and I’ve learnt to relate to them. Also, I’ve come to realize that there are so many avenues to learn new things especially people; sometimes the solutions and ideas you look out for lie in the brains of those close to you.
Overall, it hasn’t been a very smooth journey but I believe I have and still am being kept by the grace of God.
Honestly, PENSA is a wonderful family. Despite the large numbers, you will someway, somehow, fit in. There are so many resources in the form of people that God has gifted the church with, and there is so much to learn from the family. It is also a very good initiative that PENSA has taken up to see not just to our spiritual maturity but also, our academic and social excellence.
Please are you born again and what circumstances led to that?
Yes, thanks be to God, I am born again. At a point in my life, I got tired of being the good person in everyone’s eyes because of participation in bible quizzes and other church activities, when deep within, I did not really have an encounter with Jesus, neither did I live a life that was exactly pleasing to the Lord. I felt the strong need to have Him introduce peace into my life.
What do you see as your mission and vision?
My mission I believe is to be impactful and resourceful wherever I find myself; to reveal Jesus, who has made me a light. Speaking of my vision, I seek to be the best I could ever be in every aspect of my life; my career as a petroleum engineer, in the music ministry, in speech, in deed, in purity, in faith, in love and in Spirit (1 Timothy 4:12). I seek to grow to fully exude the beauty of Jesus.
Kindly Say something about this year’s focus and theme.
This year’s focus and theme are really deep. They serve as a reminder to us that if we really are Christians, and want to keep our stance for the Lord, we need to resolve to consecrate ourselves fully to Him. 2 Corinthians 6: 17 rightly puts, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.” (KJV). If we really want to draw nigh to God, if we really want to delve deeper into the things of the Spirit, then we need to lay aside every weight, forfeit every pleasure of the world, and set ourselves apart so God can use us to the max.
Standing firm in Christ as we perfect holiness!!
Share a word with the whole of PENSA.
One word that has always kept me going is Colossians 3:23 which says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, and not human masters.” I have come to understand that the spiritual, academic, social and all other aspects constitute my one life. God wants to reveal His glory and beauty in all aspects of my life. More often than not, we seem to please and involve God in our spiritual lives only, forgetting it’s just but one aspect of our individual lives. However, the Scripture admonishes us to wholeheartedly work at all things we find ourselves doing as unto the Lord. This means, we must invest all we possibly can, bearing in mind that we are vessels through which God reveals His beauty, and knowing that the totality of our being is to Him. This Word has kept me striving harder especially in my academics. It is amazing and fulfilling to let the totality of our lives please God.
What is your favourite verse?
Well, I have many but I would select two: Colossians 3:23, which I have already mentioned and Ephesians 2:10: “For we are God’s masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which He prepared in advance to do.”
And who is your favourite Bible Character?
Well, I do not really have a favourite, but I really admire Paul.
Have you grabbed?
No please. Waiting on God in the war room.
Do you have any regrets and any memorable day?
No, not really. I have quite a number of memorable days. One I really remember is the day I woke up at 6:45am for a midsem set for 6:00am. To crown it all, I got there and I was almost 30 minutes late for an hour-paper and forgot to take my calculator along. That day!
Do you have any hobbies?
Yes, I do. They are mainly singing and writing.
What is your favourite food?
Anything rice will do, especially jollof and chicken.
Kindly share with us areas you will like us to bare you up in Prayer.
If there is anything, I desire that the Holy Spirit will daily reveal Himself to me so I can perfect holiness and totally exude His beauty.
