Pastor of the Month - Meet Emmanuel Lazier

We were first introduced to Pastor Emmanuel at a pastors conference at Taveta, Kenya in October of 2007. At first glance Emmanuel appeared to be just a boy. But I soon learned that inside was the heart of a man and the heart of a pastor.

Emmanuel Lazier has been the Shepherd of Lossimingori Church since its beginning in 2007 and dedicated a new church building there in August of 2008. The land for the church at Lossimingori was donated by Emmanuel's father.

Our young pastor, so similar to Paul's Timothy, has done an outstanding job in his church and has taken the gospel message to many distant Massai villages sprinkled across the central Tanzania savanna.

Pastor Emmanuel is currently in his second year at Tanga Christian Bible College on the northern coast of Tanzania. He has been awarded a full scholarship. While away his Associate Pastor oversees the main church at Lossimingori and the others in the area.

Pastor Emmanuel is engaged to be married next year.
