I also like to welcome, Bishop and Mother Samuel Green to the 15th Episcopal district on behalf of myself, my family and the officers and members of Gow Chapel AME Church in the Cape Annual Conference. We are looking forward to officialy welcome you as our Episcopal parents.
Bishop, you have come at a point in the history of our church in Africa, where we are depending heavily on transparent, inclusive, just and progressive leadership. More Bishops have been included on the bench of bishops from Africa with a purpose. We have been working hard to shape a structure, the Africa Development Council, that will serve as a vehicle to drive the aspirations of a people who have been left behind. We thank God for the willingness from the Bishops and the rest of our church to correct as much as possible and to ensure through a process of empowerment and development our rightful place in the total life of our Zion.
Be welcome, Sir.
Rev Daniel J. Jacobs
