Samnas & Tenaye Alemu, Church Planter Apprentice
Gilgal Evangelical Church | Alexandria, Virginia
About The Future Plant:
Samnas Alemu is currently serving as a church planter apprentice at Gilgal Evangelical Church in Alexandria. He is planning to plant Image of Christ Church in Silver Spring, MD.
Samnas was in ministry for about 25 years in Ethiopia, involved in various church ministries: singing, playing music, preaching, recording audio Bibles in two Ethiopian languages (Oromo and Amharic), and radio broadcasting ministries.
He is praying and working to start a church in Metro DC in downtown Silver Spring and Germantown, MD. The estimated Ethiopian population in Metro DC is 400,000. Needless to say, many new churches need to be planted to reach that many people for Christ.
How to Partner:
- We need partners to help with Gospel outreach to the targeted areas of Silver Spring, MD and Germantown, MD.
- We need a church that can provide us a place to meet for worship.
- We need financial partners to help accomplish our vision.
First of all, we thank God for providing us with the opportunity to serve in His Kingdom.
We are in need of prayer support:
- For churches to be planted in Germantown and Silver Spring, MD among the Ethiopian community.
- For Samnas’ wife and two children (who are still in Ethiopia) to be able to join him in the US.
- To live according to our vision and complete what God needs us to do.
