By this mandate, Olowola becomes an official of the diocese and a member of the diocesan board and synod.

“There is a crucial need for dedicated brethren joining hands with the Master-Jesus and the Bishop, who is the chief missioner of the Diocese, to make the gospel of greater impact to the land, building on the good legacies bequeathed to us by our forebears,” the letter reads.

“By constitutional provision as a diocese, the bishop is required to prayerfully seek resourceful and spirited individuals and appoint them as commissaries, who serve as Bishop’s Representatives in any part of the world.
