Methodist Church Nigeria Ordains First Female Bishop
Methodist Church Nigeria, on Sunday, ordained Right Reverend Nkechi Nwosu as the first female bishop of the church in the country.
Nwosu, a right reverend, was enthroned by Joseph Nnonah, Archbishop of Kaduna at the Christ Methodist Cathedral, Jos.
Her ordination is happening five months after she was elected by the conference of Methodist Churches of Nigeria
The new bishop in a brief interaction with newsmen revealed that God is using what has happened in the Methodist church to tell the whole world that the time to release women to fulfil their destiny has come.
She said that women and men needed to join hands to achieve the mandate of God.
“God knew that by creating only Adam, He will not be able to bring his heart’s desire, so He had to make the woman to complement him.
“So, for the word of God to reach the end of the world, “man must put their hands together to serve God”, irrespective of gender because God is a spirit.
“He is not a flesh, the flesh we are seeing is just for our comfort, as He said that everybody who believes in Him and is led by the spirit of God is the son of God.
“And so every child of God who is born again and dwells in the Holy Spirit is a son of God.
“And when men or women of God in charge of denominations understand this, I believe we will conquer more for the Lord than what we have done,” she said.
On the 2023 general elections, Rev. Nwosu called on Nigerians to listen to the voice of God who knows the best leader for the country at this moment.
“We must all go out there and agree with God, listen to the spirit of God and do what God said we should do.
“Do that so that God will use us and anybody He wants to put on that seat to restore Nigeria to a place of pride in Africa, and the world,” she added.
Rev. Nwosu will serve as Bishop of Jos Diocese.
