Dr. Simon Muwowo was born on 25th July 1977 in the Isoka District of Zambia,
Southern Africa to the late Shubert and Mirriam Muwowo, who served as lay Leaders
and Preachers in the ministry of the United Church Zambia. He got saved and became
a born again Christian in 1992 after watching a ‘Jesus of Nazareth Film’ during an open
air crusade. Years later he felt called to full time ministry. In 2000, he began studies at
the Theological College of Central Africa (TCCA) in Ndola, Zambia, to be equipped for
Christian ministry but due to unforeseen circumstances beyond control discontinued his
studies a few months later and joined the Gospel Mission Team (GMT) to spread the
gospel to selected rural parts of Zambia.
After his return, his passion for ministry led him to become engaged in a part time
weekly radio-ministry outreach broadcast called “the Fishers of Men in Kitwe which was
broadcast throughout the Copperbelt province of Zambia through a popular radio station
called “Icengelo”, while also serving as a lay preacher in his local Church. In 2002, he
felt the stirrings of the Spirit, once again, to rekindle full time ministry passion. In 2004,
under a sponsorship of United Church of Zambia, he graduated with a Christian Ministry
Degree from the United Church of Zambia Theological College in Kitwe, and a
Bachelor of Theology Degree from the University of the Western Cape in South Africa.
He was licensed as a Minister of the gospel on November 28, 2004 and was later
ordained on June 4, 2007 after successfully completing his probational period at
Mununga United Church of Zambia in Luapula Presbytery.
