Archbishop Ben Kwashi

The Most Rev. Dr. Benjamin Argak Kwashi is Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Jos and Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Jos in the Church of Nigeria.  

He and his wife, Gloria, live in Jos, Plateau State, in Northern Nigeria.  They have six children: one is a doctor and one a priest; others are still studying.  They also have 34 orphans living with them in their home.

Bishop Kwashi was born in Amper village (Plateau State) in 1955.  He grew up in a Christian home; his father was a noted teacher.  He attended the Nigerian Military School, but when he received a clear call to go into ministry, he turned his back on a military career.  

After ordination and marriage he served in a variety of rural and urban parishes, and then as Rector of a Theological College.  He was consecrated and enthroned as Bishop of Jos in 1992.
