Congratulating the Most Rev James Obunde on Installation as the Archbishop of the Church of God in East Africa (Kenya)
The entire family of the National Council of Churches of Kenya congratulates the Most Reverend James Obunde on his installation and consecration as the Archbishop of the Church of God in East Africa (Kenya), the first such transition in the history of the church. Most Rev Obunde was elected Archbishop following the demise of the founding Archbishop of the church, Most Rev Dr Byrum Makhoha in August 2020.
The Consecration of Archbishop Obunde was presided over by Archbishop Dr Timothy Ndambuki, the head of Africa Brotherhood Church, and who is also the Chairman of the NCCK.
Until his election, Most Rev Obunde served as Deputy Archbishop for Administration for 14 years. He was ordained into priesthood in 1977, and has served in different capacities in the church since then.
The NCCK appreciates the peaceful and orderly transition witnessed in the church.
The family of NCCK joins the believers in the Church of God in East Africa (Kenya) in praying that the vision of Most Rev James Obunde of undertaking development of the properties owned by the church.
We will especially pray for Archbishop Obunde in line with the request a past church leader made as is recorded in 2 Thessalonians 3: 1
Finally, brothers, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.
The NCCK family also congratulates the entire family of the Church of God in East Africa on the election and consecration of their new Archbishop.
Signed on this 28th day of March 2021 at Jumuia Place, Nairobi.
