Speaking during the ordination service, the guest speaker, Rev. (Dr.) Jonathan Ihwighwu, President Ethiope Delta Baptist Coference, called on the newly ordained to be biblical and not just Baptist deacons.
Rev. Ihwighwu who took his text from Romans 16.1-2, described a biblical deacon as saintly, servants (to God, the pastor and the church), brotherly in their conducts and succorers.
Earlier on, the host pastor led those to be ordained in proclaiming the Litany of Commitment and Code of Ethics and then the guest speaker led the special prayer of dedication for the ordained.

Welcoming the newly ordained to the fold, Dns. Dr. F. Igborgbor, Chairman, Deacons Fellowship of Abraka Baptist Association, said that it was joyful to see that the number of members have since grown from 10 in the past to 16 last year, and now 20.
She urged the six new members to use their offices to move the work of God forward.
Speaking on behalf of the newly ordained, Deacon Obie thanked the EDBC President, Rev. Ihwighwu, the Moderator, Abraka Baptist Association, Rev. Blessing Onakpoberuo and the Host Pastor, Rev. Ugono for making the programme a success.
Obie added that they would contribute their own quota towards greater success in the church.
