History of Ordinations and Consecrations under My Hand
 
Since my consecration as bishop in 1997, God has placed in my hand the Holy Order to ordain and consecrate.  During that time, 58 clergy have knelt at our feet to take their Holy Orders.  As with all things, some stayed and some departed, but mostly remain in fellowship. Before 2008, we did not fully vet our clerical prospects.  That was a mistake, but we learned from it.
 
In Uganda, there is a group called “WAC,” or the “Worldwide Anglican Church,” a shameful scrambling of our great name.  They have tried to disrupt us, even stealing much of the content from our website and listing our clergy as their own.  They now claim to have amassed 700 churches and 800 clergy within one year.  If that were true, every religious publication in the world would be at their doorstep, trying to uncover their secrets, and we would wish them well.  But Providence will determine the truth as no one seems to know where these clergy and churches are.  Many who left the ACW to affiliate with them are returning, but we reinstate them with much caution.
 
During my tenure, we have visited 16 countries spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the ministry of the ACW.  As we prepare to retire, we share our list of ordinants and consecrants with you.  We pray that they will all continue to spread the Gospel of Christ wherever they minister.
 
This list of 50 ordinations and consecrations shows the clergy in their attained Holy Order.
