Stanley Ntagali (born 1 March 1955) is a Ugandan Anglican bishop. Since 2012, he has been the Archbishop of Uganda, and therefore head of the Church of Uganda, and Bishop of Kampala. He was Bishop of Masindi-Kitara from 2004 to 2012.

Early life and education[edit]

Ntagali was born in Kabale, Uganda to Ernest and Molly Ntagali.[1][2] At age 16, he and his family migrated to the Hoima District.[2]

Ntagali studied theology and trained for ordained ministry at Bishop Tucker Theological College, an Anglican seminary, graduating with a certificate in theology in 1981. He continued his studies after ordination, completing a Bachelor of Divinity degree from St. Paul's University, Limuru in Kenya and a Master of Arts degree in theology and development from the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies (associated with Middlesex University) in 2000.[1]

Ordained ministry[edit]

In 1981, Ntagali was ordained in the Church of Uganda.[3] He was a missionary in Karamoja until 1986.[1] He then served as a parish priest in the Diocese of Bunyoro-Kitara until 2002.[4] He was Archdeacon of Masindi from 1994 to 1999, Diocesan Secretary of Bunyoro-Kitara from 2000 to 2002, and Provincial Secretary for the Church of Uganda from 2003 to 2004.[1]

Episcopal ministry[edit]

On 19 December 2004, Ntagali was consecrated as a bishop for the newly created Diocese of Masindi-Kitara by Archbishop Henry Orombi. Ntagali was the first bishop consecrated by Orombi.[5]

Ntagali was elected to be the next Archbishop of Uganda by a secret ballot by all the 34 bishops of the church of Uganda on 22 June 2011. He was installed as archbishop on 16 December 2012 at St. Paul's Cathedral at Namirembe.[6][7] In addition to serving as the Archbishop of Uganda, Ntagali serves as bishop of the Diocese of Kampala, which is the episcopal see of the archbishop. His official position is Archbishop of Uganda and Bishop of Kampala.[8]

Views[edit]

Ntagali supports the ordination of women as priests and bishops.[9]

Personal life[edit]

In 1978, Ntagali married Beatrice.[1] Together, they have four sons and one daughter.[1][10]
