Over 1,000 people attended a special service to install Delroy Powell as the new head of one of Britain’s most well-known Black Pentecostal denominations, the New Testament Assembly (UK).
Bishop Delroy Powell takes over from Bishop David Greaves, who served in the role for 14 years. The NTA was co-founded in 1961 by Bishop Powell’s father, the late Bishop Melvin Powell, alongside the late Bishop Donald Bernard in 1961. Bishop Powell currently serves as Senior Pastor at the NTA’s UK headquarters in Tooting, South West London.
In following in his late father’s footsteps, Bishop Powell had this to say: “I neither aspired nor desired the office of a Bishop. It became apparent to me that this was my next assignment in ministry through a combination of things: a clear sense of cause; knowing that I have the spiritual gift of leadership; a respect for the prayerfullyconsidered nomination of the National Leadership Team and, of course, the quiet whisper of the Holy Spirit promising where He leads He will guide.”
It’s his aim to lead the NTA in the direction that God wants it to go.
