Louis Muvunyi

In 2006 Louis graduated from the MTh in Biblical Interpretation programme, and since then has been working at the Anglican Cathedral in Kigali as well as teaching at Kigali Anglican Theological College. He will take up the post on 20 June 2010.

The post of Bishop of Kigali is an important one in a country like Rwanda which has suffered so much, but is rapidly reviving and developing spiritually, economically and politically.

Louis sees his role as shepherding the people whom God has called him to serve. His work will involve preaching, teaching and healing – serving the spirit, the soul and the body of God’s people.

He said: “I am looking forward to see the Church in Rwanda fulfilling her mission and contributing to the healing and the reviving of our nation. In the family of God there are no super stars, champions or celebrities. It is team work, each using his or her unique gifts for the glory of God.”
