Methodist Church enthrones Nigeria’s first female Bishop

The Methodist Church Nigeria enthroned Rt Rev. Nkechi Nwosu as the country’s first female bishop on Sunday.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Nwosu was enthroned at the Christ Methodist Cathedral in Jos by His Grace, Most Rev Dr Joseph Nnonah, Archbishop of Kaduna.

The new bishop in a brief interaction with newsmen revealed that “God is using what has happened in the Methodist Church, Nigeria to tell the whole world that the time to release women to fulfill 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.
