Kenyans in Maryland congregated in Baltimore to witness the installation of the New Bishop of DFI Church. The ceremony took place on Sunday, October 18, 2009 in Baltimore (Dundalk), Maryland. It was not only very colorful and spectacular but very well-organized event with over 400 people in attendance. The participants included both DFI churches’ members and visitors from within Maryland and other surrounding states with two Bishops coming from Kenya and Apostle Joseph Njuguna of Man of God Ministries coming from UK.
The presiding bishop was Dr. Bishop William Tuimising, the long serving Bishop of Deliverance Church in Kenya, a man known and respected for great integrity in ministry. He exhorted both the new bishop and other ministers to strive to live a life of integrity which is so important in sustaining any minister of the gospel.
After Bishop Mulani was installed as a bishop, he went on to ordain four of the pastors serving under him – Rev. Boniface Kanani, Rev. Linje Nankhuni (from Malawi), Rev. Steve Magua who pastors the DFI branch church in Baltimore, MD, and Rev. Anne Mulani, the wife of the bishop.
In his acceptance speech, Bishop Mulani spoke about his calling and vision of planting many churches all over the world in as a strategy of making disciples of Jesus Christ. “It is the vision of DFI,” Bishop Mulani said, “to plant a new church every three years and God has been more than faithful in helping us fulfill this vision. “ Quoting from Jesus words in Mathew 9:37, he emphasized the importance of not just being members in a church but workers. “I have come to be convinced that God doesn’t send people to join our churches just to be members. God sends workers to fulfill the great commission. It is the work of the leaders to make each member a worker to enhance the kingdom of God,” said Bishop Mulani. “I have prayed this prayer many times and seen God sending workers to us both from within our church and from outside our church,” said the new bishop.
Bishop Mulani also talked about the need to have a big vision. “if your plans are according to your income, that’s called a budget, but if by the leading of God your plans are way beyond your income, that’s called a vision, and God provides for His vision,” said the new bishop while quoting a Kenyan bishop who had just visited the church recently, Bishop Jonah Obonyo of Cathedral of Praise in Nairobi, Kenya. It was a very good speech in content and articulation.
The service ended with Bishop Mulani washing the feet of the pastors he had ordained as a sign of servant leadership and afterwards There was a great reception where the faithful celebrated the goodness of the Lord with a big feast.
Other ministers and servants of God in Attendance were, Bishop Richard Kimwele of Rhema Ministries in Kenya; Bishop Martin Mwangi of House of His glory Ministries in Riverdale, MD; Bishop Thuku of Word of Life Church in Northern Virginia; KCFA president, brother Lucas Kimani of Baltimore, MD; International Church Alliance (ICA) president, Rev.

In his sermon, Bishop Tuimising imparted the following wise saying to those in attendance:
Don’t respect a man because of what is on him, respect him because of what is in him
1. Defending your faults and errors only proves that you have no intention of quitting them
2. When God has called you to do something, you are more important than what He has called you to do
3. If you continue to do what is right, what is wrong and who is wrong will eventually leave your life
4. A person may forget ninety percent of what you say but he or she will never forget how you live
5. You can get too busy in the work of God until you lose God
6. Right is right even if everybody is against it and wrong is wrong even if everybody is supporting it
7. You may not be able to change the world you see around you but you can change the world within you
