“A bishop in God's holy Church is called to be one with the apostles in proclaiming
Christ's resurrection and interpreting the Gospel, and to testify to Christ's sovereignty as Lord
of lords and King of kings. You are called to guard the faith, unity, and discipline of the Church; to celebrate and
to provide for the administration of the sacraments of the New Covenant; to ordain priests and deacons
and to join in ordaining bishops; and to be in all things a faithful pastor and wholesome example
for the entire flock of Christ. With your fellow bishops you will share in the leadership of the
Church throughout the world. Your heritage is the faith of patriarchs, prophets, apostles, and martyrs,
and those of every generation who have looked to God in hope. Your joy will be to follow him who came,
not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 517).

so blessed to have Dr. Barkman helping us and advising us in the kingdom work WNF has embarked on. As I have followed ECC/DMI
protocol in checking in and my giving, God has blessed WNF so much. God blesses order and kingdom principles. The Holy Spirit
