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
