First Female Bishop Ordained In Methodist Church

First Female Bishop Ordained In Methodist Church

Nkechi Nwosu

The Christ Methodist Cathedral Church in Jos, North Central Nigeria has formally ordained a female Bishop, Right Reverend Nkechi Nwosu.

Nwosu was ordained by the Archbishop of Kaduna, Joseph Nnomah.

Her position as the first female bishop of the Methodist church Nigeria is no doubt a clarion call to Christians that the propagation of the gospel is an assignment that cuts across gender issues.

The church service is to formally give effect to the decision of the biennial Conference of Methodist Church Nigeria that was held in 2022 where Nwosu was elected as the Bishop of Jos.

Members of the Diocese of Jos converged to witness the enthronement service as the Archbishop of Kaduna archdiocese formally pronounced the Bishop Nwosu to oversee the Jos diocese.

In her remarks, Nowsu said God has made all humans equals.

She encouraged all Nigerians to always seeks the face of God, especially as the general elections begin on February 25.

“We must all go out there and agree with God, listen to the spirit of God and do what God said we should do,” the new bishop stated.

“Do that so that God will use us and anybody he will put on that seat to restore Nigeria to a place of pride in Africa, and the world.”

With the Enthronement Act administered on the bishop as directed by the conference and in consequence of the will and consent of the Diocese of Jos, the bishop thereafter officially commenced the spiritual activities as the Bishop of Jos diocese which she sees as a privilege in the propagation of the gospel without any prejudice.
