Bishop Maurice Nicholson and First Lady Orelia Nicholson have dedicated almost twenty years of their lives to being leaders of the Church of Christ Holiness USA Eastern Diocese. They have shown immense love and devotion in their service to the people of God. The Eastern Diocese has greatly benefitted from their unwavering commitment and compassionate nature. It is with mixed emotions that we bid farewell to our beloved leaders as they transition into retirement. While our hearts may be saddened by their departure, we take comfort in the knowledge that they will continue to carry out God's work as they continue leading their local church ministry.
