Meet Pastor Noah Mukwato

Faith Baptist Church is privileged to be involved in the work of church planting and by the grace of God, we have three mission points in Wusakile, Mindolo and Kalulushi and support two other mission points (Twatasha by Ganerton and Chantente by Kakolo) in partnership with other sister churches and in the coming weeks i plan to introduce you to the men and their families who are laboring in God’s vineyard. In this blog I will share with you the Lord’s doing in Mindolo, which is being pastored by Noah Mukwato.
Noah Mukwato gave his life to the Lord in 2008 through the efforts of door to door evangelism of Emmanuel Baptist Church, a church he later became a member of. After completing secondary school in 2009, he felt the call to ministry and enrolled at Central Africa Baptist College for theological training in the year 2010 and graduated in 2012.
Noah got involved with the work in Mindolo in the year 2010 when a missionary couple Dan and Kristy Elmer started a bible study in 2009 at their home. The Elmers left in 2011 and Noah continued having a bible study with the people. In 2012 Hector and Paola Garcia partnered with Noah in the work and later in the same year Faith Baptist Church adopted Mindolo as its mission point.

Noah then did his internship with Faith Baptist Church in 2013 for a year, and on 1st September 2013, the bible study become a church plant meeting at a school with an attendance of about 20 people on Sundays. Noah was ordained as the missionary pastor to Mindolo in 2014. He got married in July 2014 to Mwansa Mwewa Mukwato. They are blessed with a baby girl Gift Mukwato.

The Mindolo Church has since constituted membership, and their membership currently stands at 27 today. They are currently applying final touches to their church building. Pastor Noah is also in the process of training three men for the leadership roles praying the Lord would call some to be elders in the church.
We thank God for his faithfulness and goodness in the work in Mindolo and for using so many people in different ways to grow the church in Mindolo. Please take time to pray for the Mukwatos as they minister in Mindolo for encouragement, boldness in proclaiming the gospel and provisions for their various needs, and pray for the church in Mindolo as well.
