On the 26th of January 2020, in an elaborate ceremony filled with hope and high expectations, the Rev Dr. Joseph Ochola was installed as the Second Archbishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya at the Uhuru Highway Cathedral in Nairobi, Kenya. The event which was graced by the presence of Lutheran Bishops and Clergy from the entire Eastern and Southern Africa region was celebrated by song and dance by over fifteen choirs and hundreds of Kenyan Lutherans from around the Country. The keynote address was given by the Secretary General of the NCCK, the Rev Canon Kamau who spoke of the Church as the salt of the earth. The Church which for several years had undergone internal feuds, that had at times to be arbitrated by Courts and top government offices was also celebrating the culmination of a historical process of reconciliation that had ended in the unanimous election of Bishop Ochola at a National Convention held at Kapenguria in December 2019. Archbishop Dr Joseph Ochola who is the outgoing Bishop of Lake Diocese had previously served as the Principal of the Matongo Lutheran Theological College. Educated at the same institution for his pastoral studies , he later went to Sweden for his Masters in Theology studies and then to the Concordia Seminary, For Wayne in the United States for his Doctoral program. The Bishops who came from Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Africa represented their Dioceses or national Churches and even regional Lutheran Communions.
