7 New Bishops For Aguata Anglican Diocese Ordained

The Archbishop on the Niger and Bishop of Aguata diocese, Most Reverend Christian Efobi has ordained three priests and four deacons at St. John the Divine Anglican Church Oko in Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The four deacons are: Ord. Walter Chife, Ord. Chukwuemeka Anyichie, Ord. Ernest Okoli, and Ord. Rowland Nwibe; while the priests are Rev. Nathaniel Ume, Rev. Kenneth Ochulor, and Rev. Eric C. Chidolue.
Bishop Efobi charged the priests to hold unto the truth and light of Jesus Christ while discharging their priestly duties. He noted that the church would stop at nothing to ensure the salvation of Jesus Christ is preached around the world.

In his homily, the guest preacher and Bishop of New Bussa Diocese in Niger State, Rt. Rev. Israel Afolabi Amoo charged the new priests to uphold the teachings and principles of Jesus Christ, noting that such is the key to their survival in the extension of God’s kingdom.
 He disclosed that God still needs people who will dedicate themselves to the extension of His Kingdom on earth and preaching of salvation of Jesus Christ to mankind.

“God is in need of servants in his massive vineyard. Nigeria is part of that vineyard and when you look at our nation today, it is in serious trouble. God needs people who would be sent to work in this vineyard; He needs people who would be sent to preach salvation of Jesus Christ. We need to act swiftly to save this nation. The unfortunate thing is that the church which should be the light is derailing in that regard. This is because there is lack of trust among the flocks.
That is why you were called to the service of God. You are therefore to uphold to the tenets of your calling to the glory of God. There is high level of insecurity in the country and I urge everybody to be security conscious” he said.

The event saw two bishops, many priests of various ranks, top government functionaries and other eminent personalities in attendance.
