Pastor Makain and Pastor Ndewa after answering the question in all confidence, reaffirmed their commitment to serve God's church unconditionally,continue watching over believers and leading others to Christ in the love of God. They did not only promise to serve God's people with humility but promised to uphold the truth of the Gospel, the dignity of the Pastoral office, the nobility that goes with the office and above all reject any title that will contradict or divert their attention on the noble calling.
After making the solemn promises before God, the ministers of God,the congregation, friends, relatives and well-wishers, Rev Minang George and tens of reverends, ordained the devoted men of God changing their titles from Pastors to Reverends which gives them the authorisation to celebrate church ordinances including wedding, baptism, and above all administer the Lord's Supper.
