Commissioning Evangelists

On June 12th, thirty three students from Carlile College were commissioned as evangelists at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi. With over one thousand guests in attendance, the commissioning service was graced by the presence of outgoing Archbishop of Kenya, Most Rev. Capt. Dr. Benjamin Nzimbi; Ugandan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Capt. Charles Odurkami; and Canon Capt. Johnson Chinyong'ole from Tanzania. During their commissioning, each candidate pledged to “show the love of God revealed in Christ. . .and to bring the good news of God's salvation especially to the poor, the broken, and the rejected.” The 33 new evangelists will serve the work of the Anglican Church and Church Army Africa in Uganda, Sudan, and Kenya. The commissioning was one of our biggest events of the year and we are excited to see how the Lord will use these new evangelists in their ministries
