On Sunday, January 26, at the 10:30 service at Peace, Archbiship Ekong will ordain three men into the Office of the Holy Ministry: Elijah Essang, David Ukpong, and Kufre-Abasi Etim. “How beautiful are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who proclaims glad tidings of good, who proclaims salvation!” The pericopes for the 7:45 service will be Epiphany 3; the pericopes for the 10:30 service will be the feast of St Titus. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad!
Pastors Essang, Ukpong, and Etim are spending a year at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, along with their brothers Pastor Luke and Bishop Willie, as they each study further in their area of specialty. These men will return to Nigeria next winter to serve as faculty at Ekong Memorial Seminary.
