Personal Journey | Sammy Kabyemera was born in 1968, in Bogoro, a small village in the East of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in central Africa. Eva Temanya is his beloved wife and they have been married since 1985 and have six children – four boys and two girls.
Sammy became an orphan when he was only eight years old. He was raised by a single mother in a Christian family who were farmers. After completing his education he became a secondary school teacher. In 1993 Kabyemera gave his life to the Lord after being convinced by a sermon given by late Theologian, Dr. Chelo Calvin. He then heard and accepted the call to ministry. After training he was ordained as a pastor in 1997 in the Evangelical Church. Due to the tribal conflicts and war, he fled with his family to an Uganda refugee camp in 2003. While there he served as a pastor until he immigrated to Canada in 2008.
Current Ministry | Sammy and Eva joined the EFCC in 2011 as a pastor leading Jesus Grace International Church inVancouver BC. Sammy has a heart for refugees in Uganda, so he works as a Missionary Associate under ServeBeyond.
