Bishop Benjamin and other ministers lay hands on the candidates for ordination and anoint them with oil.

On Sunday, July 12, The Christian Church in Indiana, Light of the World Christian Church and Bishop T. Garrott Benjamin, Jr. ordained five ministers into the fellowship of Christian Ministry.  This is the second time five candidates have been ordained in a single service during Bishop Benjamin’s 40 year tenure at Light of the World.

Greetings and the Affirmation of Faith were given by Rev. ILUMBE Ndjongo, Principal Supervising Pastor, Mbandaka District of the 10th Community–Disciples of Christ in the Congo.

The new ministers are Rev. Oscar E. Banks, IV, Rev. Carla Hall, Rev. Lisa Johnson, Rev. Toneko Kayzer, and Rev. Richard Reynolds. Bishop Benjamin charged the new ministers to keep Christ first.

Rev. Banks will be an associate pastor, serving in Kingston, Jamaica. Reverends Hall and Johnson will serve at Light of the World. Reverends Kayzer and Reynolds will serve at New Revelation Christian Church, a new church start of which Rev. Reynolds is the founding pastor.
