Simon and Kedress Nziramakenga

Good Shepherd Community Church, Kigali, Rwanda

Simon and Kedress Nziramakenga fled Rwanda to become refugees at a very young age because of the tension and sporadic violence in Rwanda, the very same tensions that culminated in the 1994 genocide. During their exile in Kenya, Simon received a degree from the East African School of Theology and he and Kedress, despite the difficult circumstances in their personal lives, reached out to other refugees, and became an essential part of Life Ministry in Nairobi. After losing numerous family members in the 1994 genocide, Simon and Kedress returned to Rwanda with a passionate heart to heal and restore their homeland and founded the Good Shepherd Community Church. Today, Simon is the lead pastor of Good Shepherd Community Church in Rwanda, supervising fourteen churches that he, and some young men he mentored, founded. Simon and Kedress have four grown children currently living in the US; however, they are not "empty nesters" as they have eight orphaned survivors living in their home in Kigali.
