Popular Ghanaian actor, Bishop Bernard Nyarko has announced his decision to abandon his acting career.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Melvina Frimpong Manso on Suncity 97.1 FM which was monitored by www.newshuntermag.com in Sunyani, Bishop Nyarko revealed that he is quitting the acting work to do the work of God.
He made mention of how he rejected a role in Kofi Asamoah’s recent movie ‘Away Bus’.
It appears he has now found delight in preaching the word of God than being on a movie set and move from one location to the other.
“Recently, Kofi Asamoah called me as he intended to cast me in the Away Bus movie but I was busy preaching. Now my pastoral or evangelical work is more important to me than acting. My preaching appointment is more than the acting appointment,” he emphasized.
Disclosing how his calling came, Bishop Nyarko said, “From 20th December last year, I was in the room, I couldn’t make a move…God arrested me and tell me to preach the gospel.”
He added: “God told me to gather some youth and intercede. I have an interest in those who have been rejected. Drug addicts…I mean the outcasts.”
Bishop Nyarko stated that for now, he will reject any movie script—unless it is a pure Christian movie which has the potential of saving people.
He indicated that his family members have given him their support after he took this decision.
Bishop Bernard Nyarko, who was once saved by a Kojo Antwi song from committing suicide advised: “God has a purpose for you…so do not kill yourself. Forgive anyone who offends you.”
