Shortly after Prophetess Adesope Adeyinka’s consecration as bishop, Archbishop Prof. Olusegun Roberts, Cardinal of WACOMBS in a chat with Christian Benefits, said WACOMBS consecration is unique with a universal recognition and overseas ministerial benefits as he explains the significance of the ecclesiastical exercise. “WACOMBS consecration is unique. Bishops are ordained ministers of the same order as other pastors, simply having been “consecrated” or installed into the “office” (that is, the role) of bishop. In WACOMBS, consecration of a bishop is to among many things to encourage the ministers who have labored in God’s vineyard, especially in evangelistic ministry and church planting. Also it’s a promotion accordingly to the organizations ecclesiastical order,” he explained.
The Cardinal of WACOMBS then rolled some of the benefits of WACOMBS ordination and consecration that include among others international connections access to research library, fellowship among one another, adequate and proper welfare of members, and association. Roberts however said there are some guideline and requirements for ordination and consecration either as WACOMBS archbishop, cardinal, bishop or minister by the college .
He explains ““WACOMBS ordination and consecration dates back 1997, and to date the college has ordained and consecrated well over 500 ministers including archbishops and two cardinals. WACOMBS requirements are not unattainable, neither is it materialistic. Among many the guidelines and requirements for WACOMBS ordination and consecration of its bishop-elects or ministers include the following:
- WACOMBS Bishop-elect must have his or her own landed (personal accommodation) property to avoid embarrassment from a landlord.
- WACOMBS Bishop-elect must not be thrown out or sent outside with his or property
- WACOMBS Bishop-elect must have a church based, a local assembly where he or she pastors or is submitted to.
- He or she must not be a convict in any way or any court of law
- WACOMBS Bishop must not be found before or after consecration to have gone bankrupt,” WACOMBS President/Appointed Cardinal finally explained.
