Youth and Family


Moses is our Youth and Family Director here at St. Paul Lutheran Church. He brings a lot of experience working with youth both nationally and internationally. Moses has been a life-long Lutheran, attending Kipawa Lutheran Church in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. As a child and later a young man, he remembers attending church every Sunday. With his boundless passion for music, he sang and played the drums with the youth choir for many years. After graduating primary school, he attended Makongo Secondary School for his ordinary and advanced level education.

While at Makongo, Moses was an active member of TSCF (Tanzania Student Christian Fellowship) before becoming a chairperson. TSCF is a Protestant student organization with over 500 student members. Upon graduation, he joined the Institute of Social Work where he received a diploma in Social Work. He continued to remain involved with his home church throughout college.

In 2010, Moses traveled to this United States. He began attending Harrisburg Area Community College and received an Associate Degree in Business Administration. He then obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Messiah College. Currently, Moses is attending Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary in pursuit of a Certificate in Youth and Family Ministry. He believes that in order to create actual change in any society or community, you must start with young people. He also believes that the faith formation of our youth starts at home with families. In his spare time, Moses is an active member of St. Paul’s Praise Band. He enjoys reading inspirational books, learning to code computers, and working out.
