Rev Stanley Ntagali the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda has been hailed as an exemplary leader who has unreservedly stood on Christian values during his tenure as the 8th Archbishop.
This was said by Rt Rev Dan Zoreka the Bishop of the Diocese of Kinkiizi during the farewell service for Archbishop Ntagali at St Peter’s Cathedral Nyakatare.
“Your exemplary leadership punctuated with systematic planning, nurturing and mentoring has left the Province very calm and stable with a successor in place.” Bishop Zoreka said.
Bishop Zoreka further praised him for his firm stand for the biblical truth and the gospel of Jesus Christ in the Anglican Communion.
“You ably represented the province and stood firm against homosexuality – a vice that is being promoted by most Churches from the West. We will continue to support this fight against homosexuality and defend the truth of the Scriptures and the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to remain salt and light to the dark world.” Bishop Zoreka added.
Ntagali was also praised for fostering evangelism and discipleship, completing the Church House, establishing the UCU Faculty of Medicine, advancing the role of family life and planning for a smooth transition to the next Archbishop Dr. Stephen Kazimba Mugalu who will be installed on 1st March 2020.
On his part, Archbishop Ntagali appreciated the prayers given to him by Christians which has helped him to serve over 43 years of full-time Ministry in Evangelism.
“Your constant prayers and the support of my dear wife Mama Beatrice have sustained me to serve the Lord diligently.” Archbishop Ntagali said.
