New testament assembly appoints new national leader

One of Britain’s most well known Black Pentecostal denominations, the New Testament Assembly (NTA), has voted in Rev Delroy Powell as their new national leader.


Rev Powell currently serves as the Senior Pastor at the NTA headquarter church in Tooting, South London, and will aim to build on the foundation of his predecessors, including his late Father, Bishop Melvin Powell, who co-founded the NTA in 1961.

Rev Powell is widely respected for his efforts to network across different denominations, and to see greater unity across the Church. He is a keen advocate for justice causes, and lends his support to leading charity, Christian Aid.

Speaking of his appointment, Rev Powell, aged 54 and a married father of three, stated: “It wasn’t an office I desired or was aspiring to but, like David in the Scriptures, I do sense that there is a cause and a need to step up to the challenge of preserving the spiritual legacy our forebearers have entrusted to us, as well as preparing the future generations to navigate the unchartered waters of the times ahead.

The Consecration of Bishop-Elect Rev Powell is due to take place on Saturday 24th August 2013, during the NTA’s National Conference.
