Twenty-five Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma ministers and two deaconesses were ordained at Suva Centenary Church this morning.

While speaking to the hundreds of congregation who witnessed the ordination, Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the ministers have completed what the church had required of them.

Rev Nawadra said during their training, they have learnt what they should do for God’s calling.

The church president Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu said they must prepare to go where they are needed, and to leave the place where they are needed less and to go to the place where they are needed more.

“You should give yourself whollyto this work. Set yourself to be example to the people of the church,” said Rev Waqairatu

There are 19 male and 6 female ministers out of which, three are Indo-Fijians.

Meanwhile, four former presidents of the Methodist church have retired this year.

They are Rev Tomasi Kanailagi, Rev Laisiasa Ratabacaca, Rev Ilaitia Tuwere and  Rev Manasa Lasaro.

Female minister Rev Litia Varo has also retured.

The church service today also farewelled the members who have came for the three-day conference.
