Superintendent Kouamé Kamenan officially installed.


The installation of the new District Superintendent (DS) of the Côte d’Ivoire South District of the Church of the Nazarene, Reverend Kouamé Kamenan, took place on Sunday 4 February 2024, at Grace Church in Andokoi. Having been elected on 25 November 2023, at the 32nd District Assembly, he replaces Rev Maloula André-Aimé who spent 8 years as DS. The ceremony was presided over by Dr Daniel Gomis, Africa Regional Director.  Dr Gomis invited lay people, pastors and auxiliaries to work hand in hand, in order to be an unshakeable support for the new superintendent. Gomis also stressed the importance of the superintendent’s function in the church.


With the laying on of hands on behalf of the General Superintendent in Jurisdiction, Dr Filimao Chambo, Dr Gomis officially installed the new superintendent, stating, “I welcome you to this position. We believe in you and give you our blessing in your leadership and responsibility. We are Co-workers in the ministry of the Church of the Nazarene.”


Receiving a Bible from the District Advisory Board, a globe from the District NMI symbolising global missions, a Sunday School document from the NDI and a bucket and towel from the District NYI, symbolising Jesus’ humility in washing the feet of his disciples, Rev Kamenan pledged: “By God’s grace and support, I will faithfully serve the Côte d’Ivoire South District as superintendent. I pledge to support these district ministries and to do my best to oversee, encourage and lead each ministry in the mission, life and work of the district.” He also pledged to work towards growth and training to accomplish this mission on the district.

A member of the Church of the Nazarene since 1992, Rev Kamenan is married with five children. In 2004, he obtained his theology certificate from the Nazarene Theological Institute (ITN) in Côte d’Ivoire.
