Basseterre, St. Kitts— Pastor of the New Covenant Tabernacle and President of the St Kitts Evangelical Association, Bishop Ron Dublin-Collins, has received new and final credentials for his Bishopric in the Church of God of Prophecy. Bishop Collins was among some thirty (30) bishops from around the world who were consecrated to the highest ministerial rank in the Church of God of Prophecy on Saturday 02 August 2014. This consecration and ordination ceremony was held during the 98th Biennial International Assembly of the Church in Orlando, Florida, July 30–August 3, 2014. The Church of God of Prophecy—whose core values include prayer, the harvest (evangelism), and leadership development—has churches in 132 nations of the world.
The biennial assembly was marked by strong international representation. Delegates of the Assembly were of international origin, representing such countries as Ukraine, Australia, Finland, South Korea, Dominican Republic, Nigeria, Egypt, and Pakistan, Cuba, Africa. The consecration of bishops was officiated by the new General Overseer Bishop Sam Clements (North America), Bishop Clayton Endecott (Europe and the Middle East), Bishop Benjamin Feliz (Central America, Mexico, and Spanish-speaking Caribbean), Bishop Clayton Martin & Bishop Michael Greenaway (Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean Isles), Bishop Stephen Masilela (Africa), and Bishop Gabriel Vidal (South America).
